For some time people have used louvre systems in the construction of their homes, mostly to protect themselves from the sun. Aluminium louvres are horizontal slats that can be fixed in different angles to shade from the sun. Today we mainly place aluminium louvres for architectural beauty and functional application. Louvres are also made from wood. Louvre systems are also constructed from metals like stainless steel, titanium, and aluminium. At AFS we develop louvre systems for the facade of any building, to the requirement of the architect, whether aesthetic or functional.
Aluminium Louvre Advantages
There’s many advantages to using aluminium over other heavier metals.
Aluminium is a light weight metal
Aluminium is a light metal that weighs approximately a third of the weight of steel. (2,7g/cm3) When designing the facade of your building aluminium will be a significant cost-saver as it’s easy to install compared to heavier metals like steel.
Aluminium is corrosion resistant
Aluminium has a protective oxide coating that protects it from corrosion naturally. Aluminium louvres are the perfect choice if you want to design a building that lasts for decades.
Aluminium is flexible
Aluminium is a very flexible metal and is easy to melt. Being flexible the aluminium louvres can always be custom designed to any need of the architect. Aluminium louvres and aluminium itself are
Easy to recycle
Aluminium is easy to recycle without losing any of its quality. Recycling aluminium only takes 5% of the energy that it takes to produce it.
Aluminium Louvres at AFS International
At AFS we created several aluminium louvre systems. These products are developed and manufactured from the best materials to ensure quality and durability. Our aluminium louvres are very flexible. Our Q-Airwing line contains aluminium louvres that fit buildings on a larger scale. The louvres can be installed horizontally or vertically based on the needs of the architect. Aluminium louvre systems aid in the control of sunlight for buildings and are easy to operate. Aluminium louvres can be installed in a fixed system, motorized system or manually operable system. The aluminium louvre systems at AFS International are specially designed to keep rain, sun, and heat outside. They can also be used to keep sunlight outside but still, let fresh air come into the building. Another application for louvre systems is sound control. The louvre systems are good at keeping sound from entering the building.
