The Panorama, with its 5" spacing provides a stunning vista and offers a view ratio of up to 93% for the ulitmate combination of light control and unimpeded view.

The selection of the ideal louver spacing is as much an art as it is a science. In some settings a larger spacing will add focus and definition to an interior design, while smaller spacings can add visual texture. When combined with drapery, the selection of the ideal louver spacing can provide a visual balance or accent that can chage the look from nondescript to stunning.
