Our Louvre Roof’s multi-channel and multi-function remote control allows you to adjust the Louvre blades to your desired angle, controlling the amount of sunlight, heat and airflow entering your outdoor area, no matter the direction of the sun. On the off day when the weather takes an unexpected turn, sensors will close the blades making sure you’re not caught in the rain. Enclosing the space with Panoramas and bi-folds will ensure complete protection from the sun an elements all year round, no matter the time of day. Your Louvre House contractor can advise you on what layout and design is best to ensure shelter from the sun in your outdoor space.

Concealed ducting for electrical cables allows the opportunity for a seamless installation of lighting and fans to ensure your outdoor space has the right ambience and comfortability. The three-tiered steel insulated roof panel provides a strong structure along with our unique weather-proof joining system allowing a seamless fit with your existing roof. Choosing an insulated roof, offered in over twenty colours with an attractive, luxurious finish, is a great way to compliment your existing structure.
