Our MicroLouvre® ultra-thin metal fabric louvres were integrated into the units and permitted optimum light transfer, ensuring high energy efficiency, which is key to any lighting strategy.
Temperatures immediately plummeted for the benefit of all. Because of these results, it was said that 40 air-conditioning units were no longer required.
With straightforward, quick and importantly non-intrusive installation, MicroLouvre® ticked the boxes in terms of leading to a lower internal temperature and reducing the HVAC load by at least 68%.
MicroLouvre® concentrated the light source in the intended direction, solving the problem of unwanted light trespass and reducing light spill and glare. This essential to protect passers-by from unwanted and hazardous glare from outdoor lighting units.
