MicroLouvre™ metal fabric is so thin and easy to manipulate, it can easily be integrated or retro fitted into any lighting unit from spotlights, to uplighters.
MicroLouvre can be used to redirect light onto objects or buildings and concentrating the light source to the intended direction, hiding the light source or bulb, and reducing light spill and glare. For this reason it is an excellent product for use in display, exhibition and museum lighting, including the Imperial War Museum.
