Experts in smart sun control solutions, Louvretec provide a range of opening roofs, sun louvre and shutter systems perfect for providing strategic light and shading in classrooms and increasing the adaptability of learning spaces.
Opening Roofs for light, comfort and adaptability
The inclusion of opening roofs to a learning environment creates a pleasing, stylish learning setting not only for students but for teachers too. With motorised opening roofs, teachers are easily able to adjust the level of sunlight or shade required in to their classroom or enjoy protection from the elements when needed.
Opening roofs also provide an easy transition to outside learning areas by extending learning spaces so getting outside is seamless. This adaptability of spaces is a major bonus for a learning environment, and is particularly effective when a classroom consists of a range of students at different learning levels requiring different settings all within the same learning environment.

Bond University on the Gold Coast features 10 x Louvretec Opening Roofs for their student's cafeteria area so they can enjoy welcomed operable overhead cover during their break times.
Sun Louvres for strategic shading and architectural flair
Sun louvres are another prime option for providing strategic shading for classrooms, and also provide a sleek architectural look.
Sun Louvre System at King’s School
The King’s School Centennial Building in central Auckland specified a Louvretec sun louvre system as part of their shade strategy. The top floor of this building required a special treatment in the form of architectural louvres which provides shade to the classroom directly below but also brings a sleek aesthetic element to complete the facade. Architects Warren and Mahoney specified 300mm Maxi Louvres in a Bracket Fixed configuration on King’s School’s Centennial Building.
Louvretec’s 300mm Maxi Louvres are a large, airfoil shape with very good span widths. The large 300mm wide sun louvres specified are fixed at a 45 degree pitch for the most effective sun control — providing strategic shade while at the same time admitting plenty of natural light to the classrooms below. The louvres are constructed of aluminium, making them strongly resistant to wear and tear — an imperative given the building’s focus on sustainability.
St Mary’s College in Ponsonby also feature Louvretec sun louvre systems as part of their shade strategy.
