How to Decide on Which Kind of Louver Is Ideal for Your Property

A lot of louvers exist for many different reasons, and it can be tough deciding on which kind would work best for your property.

Louvers are a diverse type of security barrier, and they come in various sizes and shapes. The word louver typically refers to a set of slates that are angled used in doors, fences, and other types of openings to let air and light pass in and out. Louvers are used for architecture, like on top of a roof for ventilation or free-standing structures to provide plenty of privacy. They can also be stationary, within a fixed position, or adjustable, meaning they could be opened or closed. A lot of louvers exist for many different reasons, and it can be tough deciding on which kind would work best for your property. Whether you are in the market for some security louvers or something to add some aesthetics to your property’s look, read on to learn more about different types of louvers!

Drainable and Horizontal Blades

This is a general build or variation, but this kind of louver has gutters that channel rainwater right into your downspouts. This a new kind of technology that keeps out more rain than any other type of louver. Consider this if you live in a spot with brutal weather conditions.

Acoustic Louvers

Acoustic louvers are primarily used for noise reduction purposes. They’re pretty large and heavy too. These louvers can block out light and provide you with the ideal amount of noise reduction for those buildings that need it the most.

Ventilation, Heating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC Louvers)

To protect your valuable HVAC equipment, a louvered enclosure can keep it all safe without cutting back airflow. Hercules can also create custom HVAC louvers to keep all of your HVAC equipment safe and working correctly.

Aluminum Louver

Aluminum louvers or aluminum fabricated louvers provide fantastic visual screening while keeping out dirt, water, or debris. Airflow is not restricted. These kinds of louvers have a very solid and smooth finish and use a giant wall of aluminum for proper strength. Aluminum louvers are also entirely recyclable, so if one day you decide you don’t need them, you can have them recycled. This is great for the environment. And the best part about it all? They won’t rust due to any harsh and brutal weather conditions.

Privacy Louver

When you want to section off a specific part of your home or facility so you have enough privacy, then privacy louvers are the solution. They’re visually appealing and also ensure that your privacy by making sure any outsiders can’t peek through.
