Continuous fixed blade louvre with an operable louvre mounted at the rear. Principally used in situations where a controllable air inlet/outlet is required without the louvre’s external appearance being affected. The unit is suitable for situations where sight penetration is not desirable, enhanced weather resistance is required or alternatively where security is a consideration.
