MicroLouvre™ Solar Shading

MicroLouvre™ is a fine mesh, woven from miniature woven bronze louvres, only two times thicker than a human hair, angled to block and control sun, glare and light, which can be easily and inconspicuously installed externally on buildings, in lighting units, display cabinets and many other applications.

There are over 700 micro louvres, each only 0.25mm thick x 1.27mm wide, in every metre of mesh, normally coated in protective black polyester for a durable, light absorbing finish, almost eliminating re-reflected sun and light. However, MicroLouvre™ is available in a wide range of colours to suit the application.
