Architectural Wall Louvers

Architectural Wall Louvers

Architectural Wall Louvers are used to allow air into a building, while keeping out undesirable elements from mother nature like rain, water, dirt, and debris. They also add the extra element of aesthetic design to a building exterior. Use your air intake or ventilation requirements to improve the look of any building.

What if I want more rain protection?

Gain the utmost protection against water penetration by using one of our Wind Driven Rain Louvers. These louvers will protect your building from water damage, even under heavy wind and rain conditions.

What if I have high wind loads?

Any of our louvers can be modified to handle higher wind loads (within limits). However, if you are in Florida or other coastal states with hurricane force winds, use one of our Hurricane Louvers to gain the highest levels of protection.

Louvers are commonly specified in project documents under these divisions:

  • 08 90 00 Louvers and Vents (sometimes listed as 08 9000, 089000)
  • 08 91 00 Louvers (sometimes listed as 08 9100, 089100)
  • 08 91 19 Fixed Louvers (sometimes listed as 08 9119, 089119)
