Louvre windows are usually only used for specific situations, but there are more and more uses for them as Australians decide they like their appearance.
Louvre windows are windows with timber or glass slats across the window. The slats are adjusted to “open” by being tilted at an angle. The larger the angle, the more ventilation they provide. The slats are known as louvres, but louvre windows are often called shutters or blinds because they look like both.
Louvre windows function like blinds when they open and close. They are variable so you can adjust the amount of wind and light coming in. This also allows you to determine your own level of privacy.
Louvre windows can provide more ventilation than casement windows or awning windows because they adjust inward instead of outward. Casement windows can block off wind if it is coming from the direction in which the door opens. Awning windows don’t quite provide an opening as large as the height of the window.
We can make the slats on your windows with timber or glass. If we are using clear glass, your windows will let in a lot of light when you want them to. Louvre windows are by far the easiest window to clean because the slats are small and can be opened to expose both sides in their entirety.
