Louvers 101: Which Type of Louver Is For You?

Louvers 101: What Types of Louvers Are There?

Many kinds of louvers exist for a variety of different reasons.

Louvers are a very versatile security barrier, and they come in many different shapes and sizes. The word louver often refers to a set of angled slates used in fences, doors, and other openings to allow air and light to pass. Louvers are also used in architecture, like on roofs for ventilation and free-standing structures to provide privacy. They can also be stationary in a fixed position or adjustable, meaning they can be closed or opened. Many kinds of louvers exist for a variety of different reasons. Whether you’re in the market for security louvers or something to add a bit of an aesthetic touch, read on to learn more about the different louvers.

Horizontal Drainable Blades

This type of louver has gutters that channel rainwater into downspouts. This is a new type of technology that keeps out more rain than any other kind of louver.

Acoustic Louver

Acoustic louvers are mostly used for noise reduction purposes. They can be quite heavy and huge. These louvers block out light and provide you with maximum noise reduction for those applications where it is needed.

Air Conditioning, Ventilation, and Heating (HVAC)

To protect valuable HVAC equipment, a louvered enclosure keeps it all safe without restricting airflow. Custom HVAC louvers can be created by Hercules Custom Louvers to keep equipment safe and working correctly.

Customized Gate

These structures are fabricated based on specific dimensions to enclose the designates space. Each gate can be customized to help adjust for the amount of air and visibility that is desired by the property owner.

Aluminum Louver

Aluminum or aluminum fabricated louvers provide excellent visual screening while keeping out water, dirt, and debris. Airflow isn’t restricted. These types of louvers have a very smooth finish and use a massive wall of aluminum for strength. And the best part of all? They will not rust due to harsh weather conditions.

Generator Louver

Generators need proper ventilation to operate correctly. Generator louvers serve dual purposes: allowing cold fresh air in and allowing warm exhaust air out.

Privacy Louver

When you wish to section off your facility or home area, so there is privacy, then privacy louvers are the answer. They are visually appealing and also ensure your privacy by making sure outsides can’t look through them easily.
