How Can You Enhance Your Louvers?


What additions to your louvers can you make to get even more out of them? We’ve got some ideas.

Whether you’re installing louvers to make for a more secure workplace or to protect some elements of your facility like an HVAC unit or generator, you’re likely aware of all of the benefits of louvers. Once your louvers are installed, there are a few ways you can squeeze some more utility out of them by looking into the right enhancements that are out there. Your louvers are likely a big investment so it’s only sensible to want to find all the bells and whistles that work right for you and your building.

Landscaping Elements

Landscaping around your louvers is a delicate process. You want to make sure you’re adding visual elements that enhance the overall aesthetics without impacting the security of a louver. If you were to add a large tree right next to your louver, that may open you up to someone scaling that tree and jumping into your property. Avoid any landscaping elements that provide cover for someone to sneak around your property as well. That said, there are plenty of landscaping efforts out there that can make your louver look even better, but you want to work alongside a professional who can help you understand what works best with what you’ve got installed.

Install Lighting

If security is your prime concern, lighting can go a long way. This is also helpful for navigating the grounds at night and can help make a facility feel far more secure. LED lights can be installed which have a long lifespan and will keep your grounds nice and bright no matter what time of day it is. There are even options out there for solar powered lights, which absorb sunlight to use as energy during the day which keeps them powered at night. As far as deterrents go, lighting can be incredibly important in dissuading intruders from trying to break into your property.

Just Do Maintenance

At the end of the day, the best addition you can make to your louvers is doing the right kind of maintenance. There isn’t much you need to do either! You just want to walk the grounds every couple of months to make sure there isn’t any damage or any problems that need to be remedied. Aside from that, there’s not much you need to do when it comes to keeping your louver in top shape.
