The LF550 is a large format single glazed louvre capable of achieving extremely wide spans with blade heights up to 550mm using monolithic or laminated glass ranging from 11.52mm up to 21.52mm thick.
These louvres are extremely customisable and subject to wind load can achieve spans around 1900mm wide or with an intermediate (blind) mullion in excess of 3000mm.
Where compliance with H1 Energy Provisions is not required the LF550 system is the ultimate operable facade system and has been awarded by the NZ facade industry for the Commercial Bay Project in Auckland. To speak to our expert team about installing this product, contact our expert team today.
