What Makes Louvers So Special on Your Property?

What Makes Louvers So Special on Your Property?

Louvers have plenty of profound benefits, though, including the promotion of airflow, reducing visibility, and stopping other types of elements like debris and dirt from entering.

It is a strong possibility that you have seen louvers, but perhaps you did not know what they were called. Defined by their huge, angled slats, they are metal structures used for many different outdoor functions, much like fences. Louvers have plenty of profound benefits, though, including the promotion of airflow, reducing visibility, and stopping other types of elements like debris and dirt from entering a specific area. Here at Hercules, we specialize in the installation of custom louvers, so we can tell you all about them. Since we have defined louvers, let us take a look at what makes them special and try to get a much better sense of how they work on your property!

Calculating Your Free Area

Louvers are quite complex. When they are created, the free area is calculated by taking in the total open area of the custom louver. This is done by subtracting and adjusting for any types of obstructions like the frame and blades. This helps give us a better understanding of just how much space is required when creating them, as more obstruction can keep all the undesirable elements out like water, dirt, and other debris. Ideally, custom louvers create a special amount of free space without allowing too much water in.

Special Measurements for Airflow

We at Hercules also never forget to test for airflow resistance. It wouldn’t be a louver without proper airflow resistance. To try this, the air is run through the set of louvers to see just how much resistance there is. In a few instances, like when they’re installed around HVAC units or generators, airflow is crucial for determining whether or not a set of louvers is set to install.

Water Statistics

Much like airflow, a lot goes into the science behind how louvers work and how they deal with airflow. It can rain a lot here in Maryland, so many people use louvers to protect their property from the harsh weather conditions. This is why louvers are perfect if you want to protect your commercial property from any brutal weather conditions. Louvers can shield objects from the above, which is one advantage they have over fences. This is why plenty of research and measurements are done on this.

Backed Fully by Science

Louvers are backed fully by research and science to create a reliable product that has plenty of uses, from protecting HVAC units to defining the perimeter of your property. Installing a set of aluminum custom louvers promotes improved protection against any dirt, dust, water, and much more, all while allowing airflow if required.
