Coolite Operable Louvre

COOLITE operable louvres are designed for situations requiring economical wall ventilation with high air-flow requirements when open and weather resistant unobtrusive architectural finishes when closed.

Louvres are manufactured using sheet metal perimeter frames. Blades frames are constructed from galvabond RHS with a large choice of profiled cladding materials. Blades pivot around a proprietary nylon bush and pivot pin arrangement and are operated via a control arm and link bar system.


COOLITE operable louvers are a functional and cost effective operable louvre providing high levels of ventilation and natural light (depending on Blade Cladding).

It is equally suited for use in economical factory / warehousing projects and can be upgraded using cladding materials to suit up market industrial / commercial building looking for a contemporary edge.
