This guide is for replacing slats/ blades on louvre doors with widths ranging from 300mm to 450mm. For our guide on replacing louvre blades on louvre doors that are 457mm and wider please go to: Guide 1.

So you’ve decided to incorporate stylish louvre doors in your home. But what do you do if you’ve ordered a brand new louvre door and found that a louvre blade has been damaged during transit? You might already own a louvre door and found that over time the louvre blades need replacing. Or you’ve had an accident that caused a louvre blade to break.

You’ve now got to go through the trouble of finding a replacement door. Or do you? Because of the way our louvre doors are manufactured placing individual louvre blades without replacing the entire door is possible. Even better, this is not as difficult a task as you might think so someone lacking DIY experience can do it.

You now need some replacement louvre blades. The length of the replacement blades required is determined by the width of your door. Should you have purchased your louvre doors from Simply Shutters, then we will be able to supply you with the correct sized replacement blades based on your door size. *

Take a look at our step by step guide on how to replace a damaged (or warped) louvre blade on a louvre door. To carry out the replacement you will need the following:

Pliers (long nose pliers are ideal).
Your spare louvre blade/s.
A little bit of time.
Enough space to be able to work on the door.

*If you have purchased louvre doors from another supplier and whilst we shall try to be as helpful as we can, it is not possible for us to advise on the louvre blades required. We should just mention that this step by step guide applies to Simply Shutters louvre doors only. There are many differences between door manufacturers so the advice given here might not apply.
