Architectural aluminium fixtures are used in the design and construction of many modern buildings. HomePlus® custom designs and manufactures a wide range of Architectural aluminium fixtures that are available, in different styles, systems, colours, sizes and configurations. Our product range includes window surrounds, gable sun and solar control shade systems through to sliding aluminium Louvrelite® shutters.

Whether utilised for shade, security, privacy, or architectural design (or all the above) they are ideal options for both residential and commercial properties and will fit seamlessly with any creative architecture.

Louvrelite Window Surround

Louvrelite® window surrounds can be effortlessly integrated into a building to envelop windows. Representing a cost-effective, non-structural way to make a standout and visually compelling aesthetic that will bring a building unique design, visual interest, and architectural depth. Custom-built and able to be colour powder coated to complement or contrast with a building's façade, they can either seamlessly “blend in” or serve as eye-catching accents with geometric patterns, play with light and shadow, or introduce dynamic textures. Constructed from high-quality aluminium, these surrounds offer exceptional durability, and weather resistance to ensure longevity and minimal maintenance requirements.

Louvrelite® Gable Sun Shade is a practical fixed louvre system for a medium/large building gable that receives intense sunlight. Coming in Entry Foyer and Balcony configurations this is designed to shade outdoor areas, whilst letting in light and breeze

Louvrelite® Solar Control which comes in a range of sizes is a passive design feature that can have louvre angle and spacing adjusted for the optimal position when installed, to enable maximum light in winter and minimal in summer without ongoing adjustments.
