Louvers can be used as vision barriers to hide mechanical equipment and other unsightly items. Louver blades allow airflow and reduce the wind loads imposed on structural framing.
Standard Mount Styles for Connecting to Structural Framing
- V2KS Equipment Screen is an inverted louver blade vision barrier. Louver blades run horizontal with intermediate vertical supports for attachment to structural framing.
- V4JS Equipment Screen is an inverted louver blade vision barrier. Louver blades run horizontal with intermediate vertical supports for attachment to structural framing.
- V4YH Equipment Screen utilizes a vision proof blade. Louver blades run horizontal with intermediate vertical supports for attachment to structural framing.
- V4YV Equipment Screen utilizes a vision proof blade. Louver blades run vertical with intermediate horizontal supports for attachment to structural framing.
These roof screen models include heavy duty structural framing, attachment hardware, and louvered door panels (hinged for access).
Roof equipment screens are offered in several models to allow flexibility in design. Blades can run vertical or horizontal to mesh with surrounding facade and architectural lines. There are also various blade depths to allow for your desired blade spacing. Our latest Model V6JN offers the greatest design flexibility with 3", 4", or 5" blade spacing.
Since the typical line of sight is from the ground on most buildings, a horizontal blade equipment screen with standard blade profiles will have the blades inverted to eliminate all sight-through from ground level. If the blades run vertical, a "sight-proof" blade profile should be used to ensure complete obscurity of equipment when viewed from various angles.

A variety of finishes are available from our Equipment Screens Finishes selection chart. Roof screens can be painted with a baked enamel or Kynar 500 finish, or anodized aluminum. A variety of standard colors are available. Custom colors can be selected by sending us a color chip. We will use our computer color match system to precisely match the equipment screen color to other building facade components.
Installation for Architectural Louvers standard mount roof equipment screens is simple. Each louvered screen is segmented into sections (up to 120" wide) that are individually mounted to support members on the roof top (structural supports not provided). Each section comes with mounting clips to affix the sections to the structural supports. Once these sections are mounted to the supports, the screen appears as a continuous line of louvered equipment screen. Care should be taken to provide enough structural support for desired wind load ratings. The roof screen sections are designed to handle up to 100 mph winds (30 lbs. per square foot) with minimal deflection. Options for higher wind load ratings are available upon request.
