Louvred Doors FAQs

What is a Louvre Door?

A louvre door (American English use “Louver door”) is a blind or shutter with horizontal slats that are angled to allow light and air. The angle of the slats are usually fixed and modern louvres are often made from pine wood. The popularity of louvre doors has increased in recent years as more people incorporate them into their homes due to their low cost and versatile look, they can be used almost anywhere in the home.

Support Bar

Some of the larger doors have an additional middle support bar to maximise stability.

Fitting Hinges to Louvre Doors

How to install louvre doors?

What hinges should I use for louvre doors?

Flush hinges or barrel hinge are both ideal for lightweight doors and are easy to fit. We recommend 2x 63mm zinc plated flush hinges with all louvre doors up to H 1676mm (66″) and 3x 63mm zinc plated flush hinges with all louvre doors on or above H 1676mm (66″). 

How to Clean Louvred Doors

Louvre doors can get a little bit of dust across the slats. The easy way to clean louvre doors is with a feather duster or cloth. You can clean stubborn dirt between slats by putting an old sock or rag on a ruler, bread knife or similar shaped item (make sure it doesn’t have a sharp edge).

External Use

Can I use these doors externally?

Provided the doors are treated and sealed to protect them from the elements, they can be hung outside to use as louvre doors for windows, and external shutters. However, our louvre range is supplied for internal use. Additional treatment would be required.

It’s always satisfying when you can install your own doors, and we have all the answers you need for installing your new doors. Installing louvre doors doesn’t have to be difficult – in fact, the process is more simple than you may expect. If you are familiar with standard door hinge installation and fitting then you will be good to go. 

For beginners, some valuable tips to follow would be:

  • Take three measurements of the door opening (top, middle, bottom) to ensure you are working with the right sizes.
  • Leave a 2-3mm space around the door to allow for movement and the hinges.
  • Always use flush door hinges for your louvre doors. Our louvre doors are supplied with these at purchase.
  • Louvre doors above 66” in height will need 3 hinges.
