The Multiple Combined Benefits of MicroLouvre® for Solar Shading.
Solar shading using our MicroLouvre™ is unbeatable, efficient and effective.
All glazing needs solar protection. Working differently from traditional external and internal blinds, which reflect, distort, and restrict vision and light, MicroLouvre® Koolshade® invisibly neutralises solar heat gain and glare before they even reach the window. MicroLouvre™ works non-stop to give you solar control, dissipating the sun’s heat and energy into the atmosphere whilst allowing full vision out, and daylight and natural ventilation in. MicroLouvre® solar shading systems are efficient, effective, and maintenance free with a zero-total cost of ownership.
We are a UK company providing high-quality solar shading systems for all commercial and residential buildings. We make a totally unique and unbeatable mesh that offers efficient solar protection by keeping the insides of office buildings and public spaces significantly cooler and reducing the need for excessive air conditioning.
Heat block and solar shading
MicroLouvre® Koolshade® blocks up to 100% solar heat gain and up to 100% solar glare.
Uninterrupted vision out and balanced daylighting
Our Solar shading screens provide unobstructed views and access to natural light, improving the thermal, visual and environmental comfort of a building's occupants, proven to have real psychological and productivity benefits.
MicroLouvre® Koolshade® allows pure, natural daylight in, whilst still allowing you to easily open the windows so that the directional louvres create upward laminar air circulation - proven to combat viruses and stagnant air.
MicroLouvre® Koolshade® has been tested and proven to reduce air conditioning by up to 68%, saving energy costs and hugely reducing the need for air conditioning equipment.
A1/A2 fire performance
MicroLouvre® KoolShade® is also A1/A2 fire rated, which is now a legal requirement for many residential buildings.
MicroLouvre® Koolshade® is tried and tested in withstanding Hurricane Force 12 and Category 2 Hurricane winds.
Easily outperforms solar glass
With ordinary clear double glazing, MicroLouvre® Koolshade® blocks solar heat better than any solar glass in the summer sun, with a 100% heat block (0.0 gtot), perfect daylight quality and clear outward vision for occupants.
60+ years of maintenance free performance is proven by the Indianapolis City County Building, Peckham Police Station and many other installations worldwide.
How it works
How does MicroLouvre® Koolshade® work?
MicroLouvre® Koolshade® invisibly neutralises solar heat gain and glare before they even reach the window. MicroLouvre® uniquely works non-stop providing dynamic g-value (heat blocking) performance to continually dissipate the sun’s heat and energy into the atmosphere but not blocking vision out, natural daylight or natural ventilation; solar shading using our products is efficient and effective.
Alternative To Solar Shading Blinds and Films
Windows exposed to the sun allow short wave radiation to flow through where it converts to long wave radiation which is then trapped inside allowing temperatures to exceed 38°C. MicroLouvre™ Koolshade® solar shading works totally differently from traditional external and internal blinds by simply and invisibly neutralising solar heat gain and glare before they even reach the window, like a heat sponge soaking up the heat and energy and discharging it into the atmosphere like a chimney.
