What Roles Do Property Louvers Play in Your Property?

What Roles Do Louvers Play in Your Property?

Have you ever wondered what exactly louvers could do for your building?

Your building is designed to accommodate several features that improve its look and function. Some features, like your gutters and drains, help rinse away drain water to prevent the buildup of moisture within your building’s foundation. Other building features like vents and windows assist in the flow of air throughout your structure, improving air quality and overall comfort for everyone inside. However, have you ever wondered what exactly louvers could do for your building? Louvers play many different roles – depending on the type and where they’re installed on your building. Read on to learn the role louvers play within your property.

When Are Louvers Needed?

The use of property louvers can vary from building to building, depending on its design, structure, and capacity. For example, a parking garage might require sturdy airflow, but it might not need maximum protection from the rain so that a custom conventional louver design would be more than enough. On the flip side, the generator room that contains dangerous electrical equipment might require fool-proof protection from hurricanes, storms, snow as well as high-performance airflow. If this is the case, then it makes sense to install industrial louvers to protect against the dangerous elements of Mother Nature.

How Exactly Do Louvers Work?

Property louvers made created based on function and purpose. They are built with fixed or operable blades installed onto a frame. The size, number, and design of the blades depend on the type of protection or ventilation you require from the louver. This is one of the most significant advantages of louvers, as you can customize their design and function for their intended purpose. Each louver blade has a unique configuration, allowing for several different things to pass through it. A good example would be a wind-driven rain louver allowing air through, but no rain. Each louver will create wind resistance based on its design, as well as the shape of its blades and frames.

Louver Designs

Louvers are now engineered to meet the high-demanding performance requirements of modern buildings that are not only being built higher but also subject to dangerous weather and environment conditions than ever before. There’s no denying the fact that louvers must strike a fine balance between performance and aesthetics. Especially since they are visible from the outside of a building.
