Louvre Blades

Blade Height

There are two blade heights to choose from.  Choosing your blade height is like choosing the colour of your products.  It comes down to personal taste and the look you are trying to achieve.

Grey Glass Louvre Blade

152mm (6″) blades are usually incorporated into wider feature windows in residential applications.  This is the most common blade height.

Grey Glass Louvre Blade

102mm (4″) blades are commonly used in narrow window beside doors, in short windows to get more blade in or in bathrooms.  In the right application, the 102mm blades look great.  They do work out to be slightly more costly as there are more blades per window.

Timber Blades provide privacy and energy savings by reducing the amount of heat that can pass through the window.

Timber blades are made of Western Red Cedar.  They are 14mm thick to be used with a 14mm clip only. A rubber seal runs along the bottom of the inside edge of each blade.  These blades usually come unfinished so you are able to coat them to suit your application.
