Louver partitions can be clear coated, stained and top coated, or painted. Clear coating can allow the natural beauty of a wood or wood veneer to stand out, but it can also highlight imperfections that may be present in natural woods. Stains and paint colors can be selected from the Paint Colors Chart or custom finishes can be specified by Contacting Us.


Ironwood Louver doors are built using stile and rail construction. The Louvers insert into the stiles in a fixed and slightly open position with sufficient overlap to guarantee privacy.
