Selecting the finish of your Louvretec product can be difficult, considering the many choices available in powdercoat and anodised colours.

Ideally, the colour of your opening roof or sun louvres should blend with the colour theme of the house, especially the joinery and the roof. Many customers take inspiration from the exterior colour palette of their houses; others also use the opportunity to add a pop of colour to their home. Copper Penny, for instance, looks amazing and makes an elegant statement. Copper louvres or Bronze louvres are very popular at present, especially, when paired with a contrasting charcoal frame and posts.

Tui Tusk – a soft, light grey – is another trending colour while White will always be in the top 10 colour choices for any opening roof. The many shades of White can range from Appliance White through to Almond. While viewing colours on a device may be convenient, it may not give you the correct picture due to screen resolutions; it’s better to make your final colour decision by checking out Louvretec’s actual colour samples.

Understanding the difference between powdercoating and anodising

All Louvretec products are made of aluminium and then delivered in the desired powdercoat or anodised finish sought by the customer.

Anodising is an electrochemical process that binds a layer of aluminium oxide to the surface of the aluminium louvre blade, so that it becomes part of the profile, unlike powdercoating, which sits as a layer on top of the metal. With an anodised finish, you can see and feel the texture of the metal; it is also harder than a powdercoat finish.

Beautiful, deep metallic colours can be achieved with anodising. While a silver anodised finish is highly specified by customers and architects, a bronze anodised finish when paired with a matte black frame can have a stunning effect.

A powdercoated finish is achieved by spraying a fine powder on the surface of the louvres, giving a beautiful, smooth finish. Powdercoating is recommended for customers seeking a white or coloured opening roof. Louvretec offers a huge range of powdercoat colour choices including metallic textures and even wood grain effect.
