Why Louvers Are an Excellent Addition to Your Business Property

Why Louvers Are an Excellent Addition to Your Business Property

Let us look at what makes louvers so special and try to better understand how they will look on your business property.

There is a very strong possibility that you have seen a pair of louvers, but maybe you did not know what they were known as or their purpose. Defined by their big, angled slats, they are metal structures that are used for different functions outside, very similar to fences. A pair of louvers is a special addition for a few reasons, like the promotion of airflow, reduced visibility, and preventing elements like debris and dirt from entering a designated space. Here at Hercules Custom Louvers, we are specialized in the field of installing louvers, so we can tell you about them and their primary purpose. Since we have different kinds of louvers, let us look at what makes them so special and try to better understand how they will look on your business property. Read on to learn more!

Calculating Your Free Space

Louvers are a complex piece of security infrastructure. When they are made, the free space is calculated by taking in the open space of a custom louver. This is done by subtracting and adjusting for obstructions like the frames or blades. This will let us understand how much space is required while creating them, as more obstruction could keep all undesirable elements out, like water, dirt, and other debris. In an ideal world, custom louvers help create a tremendous amount of space without allowing too much debris, water, or outside forces inside.

Special Measurements for Air

At Hercules Custom Louvers, we don’t ever forget to test the louvers for airflow resistance. It would not be a louver without the right airflow resistance. To try this, the air is run through a set of louvers just to see how much resistance there truly is. In a couple of scenarios, like when they’re installed around HVAC systems and generators, airflow is crucial for finding out whether or not a pair of custom louvers is ready to be installed.

Measurements for Water

Similar to air, plenty goes into the science behind louvers and how they deal with water. It can rain a lot here in Maryland, so a lot of people use louvers to help guard their property from the brutal weather conditions. This is why louvers are nice if you want to protect your commercial property from any summer rainstorms. Louvers can shield objects from above, which is one big disadvantage they have over fences. This is why plenty of research and measurements are done on all louvers that we install.
