After seeing the extensive use of Aerofoil louvres overseas and the need for a product like this locally, we decided to design and manufacture a louvre that could increase in width, the 200 AF to 250 mm and the 300 AF to 400 mm by means of special infill pieces.

The 200 AF louvre is used extensively on horizontal, roof edge applications and has a maximum span of 3500 mm in high wind areas  

The 300 AF louvres are ideal in vertical applications with 3700 mm free span with louvres in vertical or horizontal positions.

Gutco Aerofoil louvres are fixed to any suitable support structures, by means of a spigot (fig 1) and set and fixed to the required cut off angle.   The angle of the louvres is to the architect’s choice.

In addition, the vertical application with the louvres positioned vertical or horizontally are ideal for sun control, facade cladding, external fire escape cladding, service core cladding and decorative feature screens.

The mill finish louvres can be anodised or epoxy coated to any of the colours from our standard colour range.
