Shadotex fabric louvre solar shading system

Shadotex comprises a fabric stretched between two sides of a louvre support frame. The fabric is manufactured with a weave to prevent solar glare and solar heat gain. It can also create attractive diffused light within the building.

The specifier will define the type, shading coefficient, light transmission and colour of the fabric material.
