We manufacture all types of Louvres for all types of cars and any other ventilation purpose to specially to suit a customers request.
We also have a small range of "Stock Louvres" which we are hoping to increase range and these can be purchased from our online shopping cart, by phone or email etc.
These Stock Louvres can be used for automotive purposes or for other ventilation purposes, such as cooling food vans, caravans, truck trailers or industrial equipment etc. So our louvers can also be used for other general purpose ventilation.
All louvres are high quality and look terrific. We have great response from customers about our car louvres.
Our louvres can be used for automotive purposes for cooling engines or other ventilation purposes, such as food vans, caravans, cooling of industrial equipment and truck trailers etc.
We manufacture louvres from a range of metals such as aluminium, steel and stainless steel.
We make double sided louvres and single sided louvres, louvers which face forwards and backwards on the same panel and also triangular shaped louvers.
We manufacture different styles of curved profiles and can manufacture louvers with different opening distances.
Our louvers will suit motoring enthusiasts who are restoring antique cars and want them to look their best and also people wanting modern car bonnets where louvres can improve a cars appearance.
We work in conjunction with supplying many car restoration businesses with our automotive louvers.
We now have capacity to press very wide louvre panels up to 2 meters wide and any reasonable length which is now available And we now have the capacity to press whole existing bonnet panels.
We currently offer individual louver widths in our standard louvre tooling in 15mm wide and 25mm wide up to 400mm long and in 1mm and thick steel (overall panel widths can now be up to 2 meters wide - 2000mm maximum width).
But we have recently added our VW Kombi Louvre panels which have 515mm long individual louvers.
We can do any spacing of louvers as long as there is at least about 25mm to 50mm gap between rows (we can make narrower gaps but depends on job etc..but there should 25mm minimum gap so doesnt interfer with tooling). And we normally need about 20mm minimum material around outside or sides of the louvers themselves. Larger widths (greater than 400mm indiv louvers) available on request. We offer various louver styles which we will be showing customers on website soon

Speedex Louvre General Terminology
We decided to draw a simple picture above to show customers what our Speedex General Louver Terminology is when describing or specifying a particular louver requirement to us.
LENGTH = Length of an individual louvre opening
WIDTH = width of each individual louvre
DEPTH = Depth or opening height of each individual louvre
PITCH = Spacing between each individual louvres
MARGIN = distance between side of a louvre to perimeter of panel itself. And also between rows of adjacent louvres side by side etc.
We have recently decided to standardise louver lengths for particular widths or styles of louvers we can supply, for example our 15mm wide standard louvers range in 10mm increments from 50mm through to 300mm lengths. Other Louver styles or widths range in lengths of 50mm etc.
3mm WIDE Miniature Model Train / Car/ Plane LOUVRES
12mm WIDE LOUVERS
12.7mm WIDE LOUVERS - for gradual taper or adjustable louvre lengths (coming soon to early 2020)
**15mm WIDE STANDARD LOUVRES (*MOST COMMON NORMAL LOUVRE WIDTH USED*)
19mm WIDE LOUVRES
