Standard product features

Construction:

Frame members are mitre cut at 45 degree corners are reinforced with extruded aluminium cleats and a secure joint is formed by crimping into the extruded cleat. Intermediate mullion bars are square cut and fixed securely to the frame with stainless steel screws. All frame joints are sealed during construction against entry of water using a suitable sealant/ adhesive. The louvre blades are supported and retained at each end and at mullion positions by louvre carrier sections that slide into position. Louvre blades clip onto the carriers and are self-spacing to give a regular pitch. Infill louvre blades are also provided at the head of the louvre frame to achieve non-modular louvre heights.

If required, an additional drainage section with stop ends can be fixed to cill of the frame.

Water resistance:

Metal Technology Louvres have been independently weather tested at BSRIA to EN 13030 and are capable of achieving water resistance of up to class A.

Product Options

Fixing:

Generally, fixings must be positioned 150 mm from each corner and each mullion/ transom, and at centres not exceeding 600 mm. Fixing lugs/ straps should be used only where they can be suitably concealed.
