What are the Louvers in the Building?

What are the Louvers in the Building?

With modern innovations in construction, building designs have several features for enhancing the function and utility of the buildings. The different features in a building include the downspouts or gutters, which help drain water. These are essential features preventing moisture build-up in a building's foundation. 

Then, we have structures such as windows and vents that allow for the free flow of air in the buildings—this help to improve the ventilation in buildings and allows for better temperature and air quality control. 

Similarly, Aluminum louvers are functional features in building in the form of blades that may be fixed or operable. They are used in buildings to create water resistance, soundproofing, and wind resistance for hurricane-like weather or allow for better airflow in general.

How Do Aluminum Louvers Help?

Aluminum Louvers are helpful because they provide better airflow and block rain and debris from entering the buildings. You can also go for aesthetically appealing designs in a building's façade to give a higher degree of natural ventilation.

Aluminum Louvers are installed on several roofs to provide better ventilation and exhaust air. At the same time, Aluminum louvers provide stronger resistance to rain and provide noise reduction. 

Aluminum Louvers also act as effective screens in buildings to create a division of space where one can keep certain specialized equipment. They also allow you to get an aesthetically pleasing solution and provide a cost-effective design element to a building's facade. 

Aluminum Louvers of different types serve various functions. They can be:

  • Drainable
  • Non-drainable
  • Wind-driven 
  • Rain resistant
  • Thin-line
  • Acoustically rated
  • Operable or adjustable
  • Extreme-weather resistant.

A louver system needs to provide you with a clear understanding and give you the right purpose. You must understand how louvers work to ensure you are purchasing the correct louver design you need.

Moreover, it's necessary to ensure that you have a louver system with a good AMCA rating that is tested and certified on the technical sheet data given by a manufacturer. 


When are Louvers Required?

Louvers are used in different capacities per their design and capacity. For example, if you have a car park having good airflow, then a conventional louver design can give you maximum protection. Also, a generator room accommodating electrical equipment must protect completely from weather disturbances like hurricanes to follow high-performance airflow specifications.


Working of Louvers

You can choose the right louver designs with the right size, the design of the blades and the type of ventilation and protection you desire. All these blades have a great configuration that allows different things to pass through the louvers. For example, you can go for wind-driven rain louvers that help the air to pass through but do not allow rain or debris.

Moreover, you must consider other aspects to select the right louver system for your building. This includes:

  • Louver-Free Area

If you have a greater amount of louver-free area, it lets a high-percentage-free area because it allows more air to pass through a little opening. Therefore, it helps lower the expenses of opening the wall to install louvers. You can choose from 35% to 60% of the wall opening area.

  • Water Penetration

The louver will start leaking at a particular free area velocity above a threshold. It can vary from 300 pm to 1250 fpm in traditional louver designs. That means excellent water resistance.

  • Airflow Resistance 

Louvers create airflow resistance based on their design, their blades' shape, and their density. As the frame hinders the airstream, it can lead to resistance like ductwork, coils, filters, and building structure. 

The aluminum louvers we create are designed to minimize the resistance as they can prove harmful to the air movement equipment and the louver. Lower energy consumption is needed in louver systems with lower air resistance. 

  • Louver Design

Aluminum louvers help to meet the high-demand performance needs in modern structures at higher levels and have to face harsh weather conditions or environmental elements. 

Aluminum louvers help in balancing functionality and aesthetics. Due to visibility, they appear as parts of the building design. Furthermore, louvers can be installed vertically or horizontally, customized, and finished differently. For example, they may have different blade depths and frequencies. You can get creative louver designs at WJW Aluminium Windows Co Ltd.

  • Safety and Comfort in Louvers

At WJW, we offer louvers for meeting modern buildings' variable and complex needs. They provide superior ventilation and a high level of protection. In addition, louvers provide aesthetic design and have high weather protection capability, blade profiles, and styles that will help meet the different project requirements. 

You can learn more about louvers, particularly aluminum louvers for residential and commercial buildings. You can also check various kinds of individual products. If you don't find louvers in a style that suits you, let us know what you exactly need with a sketch with the shape and dimensions. Then, we can create a custom architectural louver for you. Feel free to ask us any further questions you may have for guidance and advice.
