Two sides to every story from New Home Trends volume 2415
Louvreline 180mm Weatherboard Panel
The northern face of this house was designed to allow in as much light as possible. However,
so that the owners remained comfortable indoors and out on hot days – and to prevent furniture from
fading – Manning specified louvres from LouvreTec. The vertical corner outside the master bathroom
has a motorised 200 Louvreline Louvre Panel, so the owners can enjoy a bathroom space filled with natural light
without privacy issues, says LouvreTec's Chris Duke. "Brackets were designed and built by LouvreTec to support
the Louvre Panels. These prevent the view from being blocked by the corner posts." Hand-adjustable 200 Louvreline
Panels were installed on the sides of the two upstairs balconies, which are accessed from the bedrooms. LouvreTec
Opening Roofs are installed downstairs. Two motorised 180 Linear Opening Roofs on the outdoor patio roof allow the
space to be shaded or flooded with light if desired. For further information, contact LouvreTec NZ Ltd, 23C

LouvreTec products were chosen to complement the horizontal
lines of the house's design. Louvreline panels are installed in some of the upstairs rooms,
including this bathroom. These are made from aluminium in a marine-grade silver anodised finish.
This matches the window joinery colour and finish.
