What Are Air Foils?

Air Foils

Air foils are just one kind of louver that can help reduce sunlight or airflow depending on the application at hand.

When it comes to louvers, there are a few options out there. Many different kinds of louvers are capable of being installed for different purposes, so it largely comes down to what your specific application may be. One kind of louver you’re likely to see are air foils. Air foils, like other louvers, offer specific benefits that may just be suitable for your commercial structure, exterior wall, or other kinds of enclosures that require these benefits. Below, we take a look at what air foils are and how they may be a benefit to you.

What Are Air Foils?

Air foils are just one kind of louver. They’re the same shape as the wing of an airplane and because of their design, they’re able to greatly increase or decrease things like airflow or even sunlight and it largely comes down to what angle they’re designed at. Those louvered blades are able to be designed in a way that’s either fixed, if you never need to change what they do for you, or adjustable, allowing for more options and changing things on the fly. Quality air foils come with the ability to be attached to other building structures, exterior walls, fencing, any other kinds of enclosures that you may have on your commercial property.

What Are Some Additional Benefits?

Quality air foils are typically made of aluminum. Here at Hercules, that aluminum is powder-coated and won’t ever rust. Foils can be built in a number of different design applications, meaning different heights and dimensions. Whether you need more or less air flow or visibility, the options are just about endless. They can also be built in a number of colors and made to fit any space you may be dealing with. Ultimately, the structure of air foils can block up to 80% of the sun’s heat and may be ideal for applications like surrounding generators or HVAC units to prevent overheating.
