About Architectural Louvers

Architectural Louvers

Louvers - various types and depths
In selecting wall louvers and vents, consideration for your application is critical to your project success. Louvers are designed to allow air into the building while keeping out unwanted elements. Improper louver selection may lead to water leakage. To assist with product selection, each louver model is listed below with optional selections by application. If you are looking for products not listed, call us. We also offer louvered equipment screens and sunshades made from aluminum with various finishes to fit your project requirements.

Select the wall louver model by application:

Higher Wind, Still Air Exhaust Storm Blade Louvers E2KS, E4KS
