Kawneer launches a one-stop-shop window solution

Public Sector Mon, Sep 23, 2019 5:50 AM

A louvre system which provides tilturn windows with fall protection and added ventilation has been launched by Kawneer, the leading UK manufacturer of architectural glazing solutions.

LouvreShield has been designed to suite with Kawneer's super thermally efficient AA®720 and AA®543 open-in windows to give specifiers and contractors design flexibility and total project solutions - a one-stop-shop of aluminium glazing systems and louvres from one manufacture.

The system is surface mounted onto the outer frame of the window to allow free air movement into the room when the windows are operated in either the tilt or turn modes. And it also acts as a safety barrier when the windows are operated in the turn mode in instances where fall protection is required.

Designed for use in domestic, retail, commercial and residential applications, including student accommodation, two blade options (horizontal and tilted) are available to suit specific building requirements and optimise façade aesthetics.

A totally self-contained solution, LouvreShield completely eliminates the requirement for additional sub-contractor work and does not interfere with any other element of the building structure, whether it is new-build or refurbishment.

Manufactured at Kawneer's production facility in Cheshire, the system comprises a cleated and pinned perimeter frame to which the louvre blades are screw splined, with all fixings concealed by clip covers. A wide range of PPC finishes are available with up to 30 years' guarantee and anodised finishes with up to 25 years.

When installed to Kawneer specifications, LouvreShield is tested in accordance with BS 6180 (barrier loading) to 1.5 kN/m line load and to BS EN 13049 (impact resistance) Class 5.
