Unrivalled shading performance

MicroLouvre™ solar screens are the result of decades of extensive and exhaustive international research and development. It is probably the most efficient modern method of solar shading in the world. It was invented in the late 1930’s by two senior research members of Dow Chemical, and first manufactured in conjunction with the Borg-Warner Corporation.

The unique system of angled miniature bronze louvres stops the sun’s heat from ever reaching the window, but at the same time permits full natural daylight and outward vision for occupants. It has been used all over the world on every type of building as a solution to overheating and provides unrivalled visual comfort.

With its passive, angle selective, maintenance free technology, MicroLouvre™ supports all today’s energy saving, fire resistant and sustainable building performance requirements.

Keep cool and save energy

The heat from the sun’s rays is a significant cause of overheating in buildings, resulting in discomfort to occupants and increased energy use to remove that unwanted heat. With an 80% open area and louvres angled for optimum daylight, MicroLouvre™ provides you with a bright but comfortable indoor environment during even the hottest days. When windows are open, fresh air can easily pass through the screen as can natural, unfiltered daylight.

Sustainable, fully non-combustible and durable
