Louvre Windows

roda Louvre Windows – Aesthetic and Efficiency

Louvre windows allow light and fresh air to enter the building. With the respective control unit, they may also serve as natural smoke and heat extractors or as supply air units in case of fire. But above all, they make a significant contribution to the overall visual impression of the building. roda louvre windows blend into the façade in such a way that they don’t interfere with the building as a whole but enhance it visually. Withal, we attach a particularly high importance to energy efficiency. Using these systems, the requirements of the current EnEV can be significantly undercut. Low joint pass through coefficients and U-values up to 0.5 W/m²K help saving energy.

 

Functionality and Safety

Opening Method:
roda louvre windows consist of one or more slats lying on top of each other, which open as pivoted slats via a horizontal rotation axis. The part of the blade that is below the rotation axis opens to the outside, whilst the upper part opens to the inside. In general, the rotation axis is centrally positioned to the slat height, however, it can be moved up to 1/3 – 2/3 if necessary (except type S200). Please refer to page EAL for the opening method of the EAL slats.

Fittings:
Fittings are made of corrosion free material and are concealed.

Surface Areas:
Profiles are anodised, powder- or wet coated according to RAL, NCS or DB. Special colours are available.

Drives:
Manually via hand lever or articulated crank rod Electrically via 230 V AC | 24 V DC
Pneumatically
