Are New Concept Louvers products eco friendly?

Here at New Concept Louvers Inc., we’re concerned about how our company and products affect the environment. As a result, we’ve taken steps to minimize our impact—and we’re continually reviewing ways to do more. Every step, no matter how large or small, is a good step in preserving our environment for generations to come.

Did you know that at the end of their long useful life, Aluminum products are 100% recyclable and can be reprocessed into similar products with no loss of quality? Eco-friendly Aluminum Louvers & Cupolas further help the environment because they never need to be repainted, thereby reducing the amount of paint and other maintenance-related substances entering the waste stream.

Aluminum is a good choice because it...

                                       

  • Is a light-weight material, which allows for more fuel-efficient transportation.
  • Can usually be recycled in a single process using up to 95% less energy than the primary production process.
  • Is produced from material that is at least 90% recycled aluminum. Using recycled aluminum instead of raw materials reduces the generation of air pollution such as carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrous oxide by 95% and water pollution by 97%.

Can I paint my Louver?

Yes! New Concept Louvers Inc., offers 450 colors that come from the Siding Industry and are specifically designed to match any Vinyl, Steel, or Aluminum Siding. If you happen to be matching a brick or stucco color, you can send us a color chip to go off from and we'll let you know what our best match to it would be. For paint colors we already have most paint decks in house so you can just let us know whose color you want us to match and we'll take a look and let you know. Should you find we don't have the perfect match for your project, we can simply make your Louver in a smooth Aluminum which will paint up nicely. However, we hope to match the color you need in order to save you the time and effort of having to paint it
