A company in Malaysia makes these for export. They are sending me a brochure along with pricing details. I'll be taking this pic along with those supplied by Jazzman and Thaifly to search the island for something similar.

They look nice and substantial. I guess the push-rod system is hidden behind the support - nice. It will certainly be interesting to know the price.
These are mine. They are much stronger than the cheapo ones you see in the wooden window frames in the Thai houses - notice the solid aluminium box section and the thick connecting bar. If you look very closely you may just be able to make out the clip system for the glass blades.

Many thanks for the addtional pics Thaifly and Jazzman. They are extremely useful. I stopped by one shop yesterday and explained what I was looking for. They brought out the typical cheap, flimsy, aluminum louvres and when I explained further they managed to find in the back of their warehouse some old steel louvres that are far more robust and much better quality. They guy in the shop said they had been in the shop for about 10 years but had no orders for them for a very long time as they are more expensive than the cheap aluminum type. He said he would have to call Bangkok for the price. I will keep looking and post prices and pics.

Thaifly, are your louvres aluminum or steel? It's hard to tell from the pics but they certainly look like good quality.

A great, informative posting THAIFLY (you're beating me at my own game :wink: ). Yes, those mechanisms certaily look robust, seems they have the hidden geraing too.

Grant,
Did you get the info from Malaysia yet?

I received a quotation from the company in Malaysia for the louvres in the picture. The quote is based on 45 pairs of louvres. Each pair is 45" in height and accommodates eight 6" glass blades:

LPI - AP6 Aluminium Adjustable Louvres in Natural Anodised Finish
-8 Blades D/C = USD 9.00 per set.

The cost for shipping to Phuket is estimated to be about 6,000 baht. I'm not sure what VAT & duty would be but I suspect about 20%.

You could get in touch with member thomas.fontaine - he is based in KL, maybe he could package some up and send them to you.

What happened with the local guy with the good quality steel ones. It would be a shame to have to import something so basic!

I have to travel to KL at the end of next month and will visit the factory where they are made. The quality has to justify the additional cost of importing them.

I'm not sure what VAT & duty would be but I suspect about 20%.
VAT is a fixed 7%. As far as duty, their is a standard book of harmonized codes that they will place you product category under. Then they assign the associated percentage, most like just 3% = 10% total

I found some great louvered windows here in Udon either at Home Hub or Do home.
No crank, but instead a latch (with a hole for your finger) UPVC, conpletly seals betewwn the glass pieces.
I love'um but not applicable in my build. (Maybe the Ms. has something to do with that).

A totally redesigned window, and unlike the brown alum. crap I have in the house I'm renting while I build.
