Project From Architectural Louvers: Dix Stadium Louvers, Kent, OH


The primary purpose of a sunshade is to control the amount of direct sunlight through your building's windows. The benefits can be found in so many articles that we will not go into them here. The intent of this page is to show you how it works and give you insight into designing a louvered sunshade system that is right for your building, whether it is to be located in Houston, TX or Minneapolis, MN. The explanation can be as simple or as complicated as we want to make it. We opted for simple, yet effective. We will cover these topics:

  • Where to shade
  • How to shade Southern exposures
  • How to shade Southeastern/Southwestern exposures
  • How to shade Eastern and Western exposures

About Architectural Louvers

Architectural Louvers is an aluminum louver manufacturer specializing in architectural shape wall louvers,, decorative louvers, louvered sunshades, sun control devices, roof equipment screens, vision barriers, and brick vents for the architectural and mechanical construction markets.

As our name states, we do one thing and do it right - Architectural Louvers.

Architectural Louvers is a family owned small business, run by the owners. With over 40 years combined experience in the manufacture and distribution of construction materials, we can deliver on your requirements. Our concern is you (the customer) and your satisfaction long term.

With the consolidation of so many companies in the commercial construction supply business, we believe it is time to get back to what is important. Let's face it, there are too few choices for good suppliers with integrity - and bigger is not better. The big corporate philosophy of "make it cheap, consolidate operations, cut costs, and eliminate service" has brought us further from the customer. What we need is to get closer.

This is our aim at Architectural Louvers. We will focus our attention on customer requirements and deliver what we say we will (and on time). YOUR order is the one that is important.
