Why Are Louvers a Unique Addition to Your Property

Why Are Louvers a Unique Addition to Your Property

Louvers have a lot of great benefits that you might not know about.

It’s a very strong possibility that you’ve seen a set of louvers, but maybe you didn’t know what they were known as. They stand out with their large, angled slats, they’re metal structures used for various outdoor functions, like fences. Louvers have a lot of great benefits, like the promotion of airflow, which reduces visibility, and stopping other harmful elements like dirt or debris from entering a particular area. Here at Hercules Custom Louvers, we specialize in the installation of custom louvers, so we are able to tell you all about them. Since we now have a definition for louvers, let us look at what makes them wonderful and try to get a better idea of how they work within your property. Read on to learn more!

Calculating the Free Space

Louvers can be very complex. When they’re created, the free area is calculated by taking in the open area of your custom louver. This is done by subtracting and then adjusting for any kinds of obstructions like the blades and frame. This helps give us a much better idea of just how much space is needed when creating them, as more obstruction can keep all of the undesirable elements out, like dirt, water, or other debris. Ideally, custom louvers create a very special amount of free area without allowing too much water inside.

Unique Measurements for Airflow Settings

Here at Hercules, we always remember to test out for airflow resistance. It would not be a louver with correct airflow resistance. To try this, the air is then run through a set of louvers to see just how much resistance there truly is. In a few instances, like when they are installed around HVAC systems and generators, airflow is essential for determining whether or not a louver set is ready to be installed.

Water Resistance

Like airflow, plenty of science and thought goes into how louvers work and handle airflow. It can rain a lot here on the east coast, so people use louvers to protect their property from the brutal weather conditions. This is why louvers are great if you want to protect your commercial property from potentially brutal weather conditions. Louvers are able to shield objects from above, which is one advantage that they have over an ordinary fence. We do plenty of research and measurements on this louver design aspect.
