Why Louvers are a Special and Unique Addition to Your Property

Why Louvers are a Special and Unique Addition to Your Property

At Hercules Custom Louvers, we have all types of custom louvers that we can install.

It is a very strong possibility that you have seen a pair of louvers somewhere, but you might not know what they’re called. Defined by their large and angled slats, they are metal structures used for most outdoor functions, similar to fences and gates. Louvers have all types of profound benefits, though, like promoting the steady flow of air, reducing visibility, and stopping all other kinds of elements like dirt and debris from entering a specific space. At Hercules Custom Louvers, we have all types of custom louvers that we can install, so allow us to take a look at what makes them unique and special and what makes them work on your property. Read on to learn so much more!

Calculating Free Space

Louvers are very unique. When they’re made, the free space is made by taking in the open area of the louver set. This measurement is done by subtracting and adjusting for any kinds of obstructions, like the blades and frames. This helps give our contractors a better understanding of how much space is required while creating them, as much more obstruction could keep all the undesirable elements out, like debris, dust, dirt, and water. Ideally, custom louvers could create an exceptional amount of free space without letting too much water inside.

Unique Measurements for Airflow in Your Louvers

Here at Hercules, we always remember to test the custom louvers for airflow resistance. It would not be a louver without correct airflow resistance. To attempt this, the air is ran through a set of test louvers to see just how much resistance there actually is. In a few examples, like when they are installed around HVAC generators or units, airflow is so crucial for determining whether or not a pair of louvers is ready to be installed.

Water Prevention Measurements

Much like airflow, plenty goes into the science behind how a set of custom louvers work and how they deal with airflow. It rains a lot here in Maryland and in the mid-Atlantic, so people use louvers to guard their property from brutal weather conditions. This is why louvers are excellent if you want to protect your commercial properties from harsh weather conditions. Louvers are capable of shielding objects from the above, which is one main advantages they have over a fence or a gate. This is why our contractors do their research and measurements while also taking their time to make sure the job is done right.
