In light rain, the louvres can remain partially open for ventilation, but for heavier rain, the fully closed position will block out rain, with the louvres overlapping each other (see diagram). In heavy pours, you may rarely get a fine spray through & if a downpour is heavy enough for your house gutter to overflow, your awning gutter may do the same.
Rainproof does not mean totally waterproof- remember an adjustable louvre awning is an adjustable, opening roof. It should be remembered that an adjustable louvre awning is not & cannot be as waterproof as a conventional fixed & tiled roof.
Whilst your adjustable louvre awning brings the benefit of an indoor-outdoor area, it is not 100% proof against severe weather conditions.
Having said all this, the Adjustable Aluminium Louvre roof is by far Lifestyle Awning Solutions’ top seller & we have hundreds of very satisfied Adjustable Aluminium Louvre awning clients who have been enjoying the benefits of a louvre awning for many years.
