After recent product testing by the Building Research Establishment it was declared that MicroLouvre™ by Smartlouvre® is hurricane proof!
The testing took place in a BRE wind tunnel in London. Testing was undertaken at speeds of up to 45.4m/s (102mph) and with three wind directions.
After testing the product was examined for signs of damage and no visible signs were discovered.
Testing was carried out by Gordon Breeze and Dee Athwal from BRE and witnessed by Carter Gilbert from Smartlouvre®.
