The Tubrise Sunlouvre, available from Hunter Douglas, offers sun protection together with an attractive exterior for your building.

Made of aluminium tubular panels, with variable spacing according to project requirements, the Tubrise Sunlouvre is a special architectural element for both sun control and aesthetics in building facades and other related applications.

Quickly and easily installed, the Tubrise Sunlouvre can be fitted in either horizontal or vertical applications. Covers can be placed at the end of the tubular panels if required.

The standard colour is natural anodized but other colours are available on request. The Tubrise Sunlouvre can be supplied in a perforated or solid finish.
