Timber Louvre and Bris Soleil Systems
External Horizontal and Vertical Louvre Blade Systems are increasingly being used on buildings throughout the UK.
Over 40% of UK Energy consumption is building related and this also contributes to almost half of the UK’s co2 emissions.
Therefore Planning Officers, Architects and Developers are under increasing pressure to reduce these levels and one way of doing so is to make buildings greener, by introducing natural light and limiting the amount of air conditioning within buildings.
Timber based Louvre options are now becoming the material of choice as it has high sustainability credentials, is relatively light weight in relation to metal alternatives and far more aesthetically pleasing, all helping to persuade Planning Officers and Committees nationwide that timber provides the natural and sustainable solution.
AA Joinery Limited has extensive knowledge of this particular market and can produce bespoke Architectural Timber Louvre Systems to any specification we offer profiling, precision cutting using CNC machinery, Mitred and Compound Mitred Ends, External Specification Factory Coatings and Fire Treatments.
The traditional choice has always been Western Red Cedar in Elliptical Sections, however Architects and Designers are realising the versatility of Timber and many buildings are clothed with a wide variety of profiles and species including Oak, Chestnut, Siberian and Home Grown Larch, Thermowood, Accoya and a range of Engineered Timbers.
