Key Features
Motorised and Automation Control
Motorised operation is the most effective control for Rack Arm Systems. The electric motor incorporates internal thermal protection against overheating. A tubular motor drives a gearbox that is connected to the tilt shaft.
Ease of Installation
Customisation of system shapes, widths and lengths offer retrofit installation to internal, external facades. Slats and components are lightweight and therefore suitable for light building structures.
Installation on Shaped glazing
Systems suitable for internal and external installations on a range of shaped glazing: rectangular, triangular, trapezoidal and circular.
Sun Shading and Privacy
Interlocking louvres are available with brushes and perimeter baffles, providing near blackout, or adjusted to allow day-lighting as needed. Cross ventilation can be achieved by slats automatically tilting to optimise shading at varying sun angles.
Slat Positioning
More efficient cross ventilation can be achieved by slats automatically tilting to optimise shading at varying sun angles.
High Quality and Durable Components
Slats, operating and structural components made from high grade extruded aluminium.
Louvre Slats
Rack Arm systems comprise of a series of support arms (rack arms) onto which slats are mounted. The rack arm design incorporates a tilt shaft to enable smooth rotation 0˚- 90˚, from fully closed to fully open.

A range of profiles and sizes are available, resulting in the following appearances:
Flush, Tongue and groove, Weatherboard.

Timber Louvres
Manufactured from modified timber originating from sustainable forests. After processing, the timber has remarkable longevity, strength and other outstanding properties that make it ideal to endure Australian climate conditions.
System Configurations

Rack Arm Systems are suitable for internal and external installations on a range of shaped glazing:
rectangular, triangular, trapezoidal and circular. Systems can be duplicated with no coverage limitations.
