Horiso® Retractable Horizontal Wood Louvers

The installation of Horiso® Retractable Horizontal Louvers using wood, controls internal solar heat gain and glare while maximizing natural light.
Architecturally, Horiso® Retractable Horizontal Wood Louvers, evoke a rich feeling of warmth within the building as well as presenting a lighter appearance.

Horiso's approach includes only using wood from environmentally responsible sources that guarantee the sustainability of the plantation. The high quality wood and mill processes provide long term benefits including product appearance, strength and operation. In addition, wood stability is high, leading to increased longevity. During installation the louvers are perfectly aligned, enhancing the quality of the product internally and overall facade design. Motorized control will automatically raise, lower and tilt the slats. Energy efficiency levels are optimized, contributing to the higher Green Star rating credentials.
