Which Kind of Material Is The Best for Your Security Louvers?

Choosing to have security louvers installed will greatly benefit your property.

Choosing to have security louvers installed to help maintain and control the air movement and privacy throughout your business or home will prove to be a substantial economical and environmentally friendly choice. Louvers are manufactured with mobile plates that can adjust either automatically or manually to open up space to guide air through a building or block if need be. They are usually used for security purposes, but can also be used for climate control in certain spots as well. After they’ve been set up around an HVAC system, wall, chimney, or other air-handling pieces of equipment, they can also improve the overall quality of a structure. There are many variations of louvers to choose from to secure your property. They all depend on the type of building and its needs. Here are a few examples of the most common materials that louvers are made of.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel security louvers are an excellent choice for several different needs and industries. Stainless steel has proven to hold up its strength even under dangerously high temperatures and conditions. It has excellent durability, resistance to flexibility, and corrosion, which makes it very useful for several situations. Stainless steel security louvers can be a bit more expensive to produce, but in the long term, their low maintenance and long life expectancy will more than make up for it. It is a dense material as well, so keep that in mind.  


Aluminum louvers are a low-cost alternative that is even simpler to maintain. Aluminum does not rust and is widely noted for its corrosion resistance, which allows louvers that are made from the material to have a long-lasting life and keep its original aesthetic look and appeal without breaking down from the elements. A considerable advantage of aluminum security louvers is its ability to be recycled and reused on multiple occasions without ever losing its base properties. Aluminum louvers are durable, flexible, and much lighter than one that is made with stainless steel. While aluminum is durable enough for all kinds of equipment, note that it is not as strong during higher temperatures. However, aluminum security louvers are a specialty from the folks at Hercules Custom Louvers.


Galvanized security louvers are made of steel that has been coated with zinc to make it corrosion resistant. This is an attractive option for individual buildings since they can endure severe and harsh weather elements much better.
