How to Decide on the Best Kind of Louver for Your Facility

A lot of different types of louvers exist for many different reasons.

Louvers are a very diverse security barrier, and they come in various sizes and shapes. The word louver usually refers to a set of slates that are angled and used for doors, fences, and other kinds of openings to allow light, air, and more to pass through. Louvers are also used within architecture, like on roofs for proper ventilation and free-standing structures to help provide privacy. They are also able to be stationary in a fixed spot and adjustable, meaning they can be closed or opened too. A lot of different types of louvers exist for many different reasons. Whether you are in the market for security louvers or something to add a nice aesthetic touch, read on to learn how to decide on which type of louver is an ideal fit for your facility!

Drainable Horizontal Blade

This is a kind of louver that has gutters that will channel rainwater into your building’s downspouts. This is a recent kind of technology that is designed to keep out more rain than any other type of louver.

Acoustic Custom Louver

Acoustic custom louvers are used primarily for noise reduction reasons. They can be very heavy and tall. These louvers will block out light and provide you with plenty of noise reduction for those applications where it may be needed.

Ventilation, Heating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC Units)

To help protect your valuable HVAC equipment, a louvered enclosure will keep it safe, all without ever restricting airflow. Custom HVAC louvers from Hercules will keep your equipment safe and working correctly. You never know which kinds of threats, weather conditions or thieves, that your HVAC units could be facing.

Customized Gates

These types of structures are fabricated based on certain dimensions to enclose the designates of each space. Each gate could then be customized to help adjust the amount of air and visibility that each property owner wants.

Aluminum Louver

Aluminum or fabricated aluminum louvers provide great visual screening while keeping out dirt, water, and debris. Airflow is never restricted with these louvers. These kinds of louvers have a very smooth touch and finish and use a large wall of aluminum for support. The best part about them? They won’t ever rust due to brutal weather conditions.

Privacy Louvers

When you just want to section off one area of your home or facility, then privacy louvers are for you. They’re visually appealing and help ensure your privacy by ensuring outsiders can’t see through them.
