Why Aluminium is the Best Material for Sun Louvres

When it comes to the best material for sun louvres in Australia, aluminium is undoubtedly the premium choice. That’s why Louvretec’s award-winning sun louvres are constructed from lightweight, durable, and versatile aluminium for both a functional and aesthetically pleasing product. Here are the five reasons aluminium is the best material for sun louvres in Australia.


Australia is known for its harsh weather conditions, including strong winds, salt spray, and intense heat. Sun louvres made of materials like steel or wood can easily corrode, warp, or crack under these conditions. Aluminium, on the other hand, is highly resistant to corrosion and can withstand the harsh Australian weather without deteriorating over time. Aluminium sun louvres are perfect for coastal areas or regions that experience high levels of moisture in the air.

Energy Efficient

Sun louvres can help reduce energy consumption by shading the building's interior and reducing the need for air conditioning. Aluminium is an excellent material for this purpose, as it has a high reflectivity index, which means it reflects heat and light rather than absorbing it. This helps to reduce the amount of heat that enters the building, keeping it cool and comfortable.

Low Maintenance

Louvretec sun louvres require minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective solution for building owners. They do not need to be painted or stained regularly, and they can be easily cleaned with a hose or pressure washer. This low maintenance requirement makes them an ideal choice for commercial and industrial buildings where regular maintenance may be challenging.
