Andrew is the 5th Generation of his family in the solar shading industry, with nearly 50 years experience. Having spent 25 years in the associated business of Fire and Smoke containment blinds and curtains, building the world leading Coopers Fire Ltd, Andrew has now returned to his roots by bringing the weaving machines for producing MicroLouvre®, previously known as Koolshade, over to the UK.
When tested at Fraunhofer, results confirmed MicroLouvre® as the most comprehensive solution for Thermal and Visual Comfort in one system.
The Berkeley Lab included MicroLouvre® in a major research project for PG&E. With MicroLouvre®, daily cooling loads were reduced by 68% on sunny days when compared with dual pane, high performance solar control glass with an internal blind.
The IFC Group have confirmed MicroLouvre® to be A1/A2-s1,d0 : BS EN 13501 Fire Rating, making it one of very few passive and dynamic external sun and solar heat gain blocking systems compliant for use on high rise buildings.
Building Research Establishment (BRE) wind tunnel tested MicroLouvre® screens from different angles and proved it to be indestructible at winds exceeding 100mph/160 kph/46 metres per second.
Smartlouvre Technology Limited is an ISO: 9001 2015 Accredited Quality Management company.
MicroLouvre® has been extensively modelled using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in SimScale.
