The Benefits Of Aluminium Louvres

The Benefits Of Aluminium Louvres

June 24, 2019

Louvres have been around since the middle ages and are used widely in construction. Traditionally, made from wood louvre systems have been used as protection from the sun. Modern louvres are made from other metals such as stainless steel, titanium, and aluminium which are much more capable of withstanding external stresses. We use Australian aluminium louvres for their unique angle slated and shutter designs to deliver a cost-effective solution that provides shade from the sun and improves ventilation. 


Advantages of aluminium louvres 


Aluminium is one of the lightest metals, and it is 33% lighter than steel, making it very cost-effective. It is easy to install and does not compromise on strength. 



When aluminium comes in contact with oxygen, it develops a thin oxide layer on the surface. The oxide layer protects the aluminium against different forms of corrosion. Our Australian aluminium louvres are an excellent option for homes built in coastal regions. They are rustproof and corrosion resistant, providing a structure that will last you several decades.  


Flexible and Versatile

Our Australian aluminium is highly versatile. It’s easy to melt, bend, cut and shape, letting you design a unique louvre to suit your style. 



The harsh UV rays can destroy outdoor furniture and our skin. Our Australian aluminium louvres are designed to maximise the benefits of solar gain while minimising the harmful effects of the sun.


Suitable year-round

With the heat of the long Australian summer and the heavy downpours of the Australian winter, our louvres are designed and optimised for these harsh conditions. 


Eco friendly 

Aluminium is 100% recyclable. Arguably the most sustainable building material globally, it requires up to 95% less energy to recycle aluminium than to produce other primary metals. We at Sunlite pride ourselves on our low waste manufacturing methods and any production waste generated in construction is returned for recycling. 


Our louvres are created sustainably from Australian aluminium and are designed to keep rain, sun and heat outside.
