FOLDING LOUVRE SHUTTERS
For many years Hunter Douglas have successfully built manual and motorised folding louvre shutter systems for projects requiring a sun control solution. Folding louvre shutters give a strong dynamic effect to a building by radically changing the facade from a closed, monolithic volume to an open, transparent envelope. The panels fold away from the façade, literally creating an extra dimension that makes this transformation even more dramatic.
Why Folding louvre Shutters?
Folding Louvre Shutters offer a perfect solution to regulate light and heat and at the same time bring a dramatic architectural element to the facade. The application of louvre fins provides the required shading and allows an open view onto the street outside. A choice of louvre shapes and finishes provide a wide variety if finishes to a building’s appearance.
- Folding shutters change the facade appearance instantly from closed to open
- Manually operated or motorised; both closing completely flat
- Available as single pair (V) or double pair (W, manual only)
- Choice of six louvre shapes in extruded aluminium and Western Red Cedar wood
- Totally weather resistant and low in maintenance
- Custom designs or alternative materials possible
Folding Louvre Shutters are the ideal sun control solution for buildings that call for the combination of functionality and architectural effect. They offer shading and privacy and are resistant to all weather conditions and wind loads.
Design & Inspiration
Folding Louvre Shutters dramatically change the appearance of a facade every time they open or close. By choosing a suitable fin type and finish the architect can achieve functionality as well as an attractive feature to the building.
Colours & Finishes
All aluminium profiles used in the Sliding Shutter system can be anodised in natural silver or a range of alternative colours and shades. Anodisation is an electrolytic process that turns the top layer of the aluminium into a strong protective surface resistant to all conditions. For an even wider choice of colours and designs the shutters can be powder coated in any RAL colour or as a special colour to match the desired specification. Hunter Douglas also offers the highest standard of sublimation finishes, giving the high protection of a durable powder coating finish with the superb-look of wood designs, patinised metal as well as a host of other finishes. As for the real wood fins: Western Red Cedar can be used without finish in outside conditions, resulting in a beautiful silver grey tone that will keep for many years without maintenance. Alternatively the wood fins can be provided with a transparent nano coating that with regular maintenance will preserve the original red brown appearance.
Health and wellbeing
The Hunter Douglas Architectural range of ceiling products contribute to sustainable buildings through aesthetic solutions that enhance comfort and save energy. Promoting the health and well being of their occupants is arguably the most important function of building. Our shading solutions promote the use of healthy daylight without the hindrances of glare and thermal discomfort. Our acoustic ceilings are a key element in the provision of acoustic comfort.
Environmentally sound materials are the key to a sustainable building. Our strategy is to pick materials that have good environmental properties to start with. Many of our products are made of aluminum produced in our own smelters. We have optimised our processes to use up to 99% of recycled content to produce the right alloy for our products. Our wood is FSC certified and we embrace the Cradle to Cradle principle in our product development.
Reducing the energy use of the total building stock is key to the prevention of global warming. Most modern office buildings use more energy for cooling than heating. Effective management of the solar energy that passes through the transparent part of the façade is a key strategy in the prevention of overheating in both old and new buildings. Our high performance shading solutions bring substantial energy savings, while at the same time promoting health and wellbeing.
