Louvre Windows are windows with horizontal planks/blades which either adjustable or fixed. Also known as Naco Windows they offer a practical solution for control of light, sound and airflow. With the choice of glass or aluminium blades (a common sight in old HDB blocks especially as Corridor Windows).
Structure and Usage of Louvre Windows
These windows are commonly a set of 3 or more planks that are angled to admit light & air at the same time they can keep out rain, sunshine and maintain privacy from outsiders. The horizontal planks are typically made of glass, similar to venetian blinds yet much wider. Taller height Louver Windows would have a greater number of planks or may be made of 2 separate columns for ease of operation.
Louvre windows are best suited for achieving good ventilation, and the ability to adjust the blades to sharper or lesser angles means the amount of air and natural light getting in can be controlled.
Manual adjustment of the planks can be done with a metal lever whereas for sophisticated systems, the planks can also be operated by electric or remote-controlled levers. Besides air & light, Louvres also provide an effective smoke escape in the case of a fire.
