Louvrelite 88: An Alternative Shade Control Solution

21 November 2022 by Dan Rawling

With Summer well and truly imminent, it would be the perfect opportunity to talk about a new system that HomePlus has added to its extensive range of products that are designed to create functional yet comfortable and stylish outdoor areas that enable a degree of control of privacy, shade, and airflow.

The Louvrelite® 88 Series shade system consists of aluminium louvre or slats that are used to manage shade and sunlight for an area like an outdoor room. They are also a great option for adding architectural interest to a building.

A system of louvres or aluminium slats designed to be fixed or set in panels that slide along a runner in areas in an area of choice. The panels promote privacy and help manage airflow and light through tilting louvres and moveable panels. As the area can be closed, or opened-up, up as and when required. Particularly handy with New Zealand’s capricious weather!

Louvrelite 88 as already mentioned is often used as an architectural feature and can be a practical option for multi-unit living where outdoor areas can often be close together. The privacy screens come in a range of slat or louvre infills, configured vertically or horizontally depending on preference.

Three widths of slat available horizontal or vertical in 49mm, 60mm or 123mm, or horizontal louvres in three choices of 80mm, 120mm or 150mm. All have options for adjustable spacing and louvre angles for customised control. Top or bottom rolling options and the custom-made screens can be up to 1500m wide x 2700mm high and come in one, two, three or four door, screen configurations. All aluminium parts can be NZ powder coated from a wide range of Dulux colour choices to match existing joinery or as required.

The images shown here are from a recent project that was completed by the team at HomePlus Rodney. A great utilisation of Louvrelite 88 to tackle an outdoor room where innovative design has created this visually striking combination of fixed and sliding louvre panels that have practically enhanced the area with shade and airflow control.
