Solar Shading

MicroLouvre is the smallest and most efficient solar shading screen at only 1.2mm depth. Outstanding reduction in solar heat gain of 86%.

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.

How does MicroLouvre work?

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 can be supplied in a wide range of colours to suit the application.

Solar Shading

MicroLouvre provides 100% solar shade to windows when the attitude of the sun is greater than 40°. Usually the screens are installed in close proximity to the outside of a window and in a vertical plane.

Other proven benefits of MicroLouvre are

Reduction in Heat Loss – It has been shown that MicroLouvre is able to reduce outward heat loss through a 6mm clear plate glass window at night under winter design conditions by at least 15%. Thereby reducing costs of heating in winter.

Ventilation – MicroLouvre permit an open area of at least 79% aloowing great natural airflow and high visibility

Reduction of Noise – Reduce external noise intensity by as much as 50%

Insect Protection – MicroLouvre screens provide at least 17 horizontal wires to the vertical 25mm – equivalent or better than fine insect screen.

Wind Resistance – The mesh has low wind resistance of less than 25 kg/m2 when there is a wind velocity of 100 km/hr through the screen.
