What Varieties of Custom Louvers Are Out There?

Custom Louvers
What kinds of custom louvers are out there? Each type has its own applications.

Louvers are known for their slatted designs but what you may not know are all of the varieties there are. Because their design is so simple—yet powerful—there are a huge number of applications. When considering the installation of louvers, it’s important to know just how they can be used. Thankfully, we’ve got the answers you’re looking for. Read on to find out what the major varieties of custom louvers are and see if any of them are suitable for your applications.   


Looking to set your property apart and prevent anyone from looking in? Making sure everything is private is a great idea. Your custom louvers can be created with privacy in mind. For some commercial properties, privacy is absolutely essential, so consider the use of louvers for that purpose. 


The right approach towards security means using the right security structures. Custom louvers can be installed to help prevent anyone from scaling over your structure and gaining access to your property. Security is important in keeping employees and guests alike safe, so if you’re concerned about how secure your property is, consider using louvers.


Commercial generators need to be protected. That is, they need to be protected from debris (a big problem during the fall!) which could ultimately end up negatively impacting performance. However, generators still need some space to breathe, which is why louvers may be a good option. Installing louvers around a generator ensures that debris won’t back the system up. 

HVAC Units

HVAC systems are incredibly valuable. They’re an asset in that they keep us warm when it’s cold out or cool when it’s hot out. That said, there are some maintenance and care needs that must be considered, some of which can be mitigated with the use of louvers. By using louvers, you can guarantee that airflow is still happening, preventing any unnecessary overheating that could otherwise reduce the performance of your HVAC unit.

Air Foils

Air foil louvers work similarly to how airplane wings do. They can control the amount of airflow or sunlight allowed in, though this largely depends on how they are angled. When properly designed and installed, air foils can reduce up to 80% of the sun’s heat. They’re also available in a huge variety of colors and designs.
