The Spiral Pivot System is a highly flexible, award winning operating system designed specially by Louvretec to control their range of opening roofs & operable sun louvres. The system allows the individual louvre blades to rotate smoothly though a 180o range, which is only limited by blade to blade contact. 

The system is available as motorised (240v tubular motor) or hand operated (quad gearbox – allows operation from above, below, front or back) and both the pivoting mechanism & motor are completely concealed to give a stylish, streamline appearance.


The Super Elam frame is a new design incorporating an upgraded 63mm wide Spiral Pivot system supported by a 63x100 structural sub-frame. The motor sits within the sub-frame and is accessible via a concealed motor access cover.

Super Elam can be inserted in to an opening or fixed to the building by 100x50 fixing legs. Fixing can also be by flat brackets attached to the building and slotted over milled openings in the sub-frame.

Blades can be run horizontally or vertically.
