Historic decorative copper and zinc sheeting for cladding shutter boxes

Decoratively cladding blinds - decorative panels for listed buildings

Decorative panels, known as lambrequins or pelmets, were used towards the end of the 19th century to decoratively clad unsightly shutter boxes. These are embossed sheets of copper or zinc. The shutter covers have the typical ornaments and decorations from the historicism and art nouveau periods.

Although they may simply be overlooked in individual cases, decorative sheet metal is an indispensable building detail for the stylish renovation of old buildings and listed houses, and plays a key role in shaping the impression of the house façade. The continuous patterns can also be used to stylishly clad arcades, roof edges or eaves.

The louvre shutters have predefined sizes and lengths due to the embossed shapes. If the length is not sufficient, the panels can simply be joined. They are usually fitted high up on the house so that this is hardly perceived as a nuisance. Individual models are also available in customised lengths. Just make an enquiry.
