LOUVERS (FIXED PITCH WEATHER)

CE-AIR's Fixed Pitch Weather Louvers represent a versatile solution designed to serve as reliable ventilation sources for both inlet air and exhaust systems. These louvers feature individual blades integrated into CE-AIR's proven louver frames, available as single units or configurable into banks of unlimited dimensions, ensuring flexibility in installation across various applications.

These louvers are ideally suited for integration into cladding, glazing, and brickwork, with flanges tailored to accommodate diverse mounting requirements. They are engineered as factory-assembled exterior weather louvers, offering a range of blade configurations to meet aesthetic, functional, and weatherproofing demands.

Designed for vertical mounting in sheeting, glazing, or brickwork, they can be manufactured from materials matching adjacent metal cladding for seamless integration and visual continuity.

Customized to You

Manufacturing options include customizable top, bottom, and side flanges to suit any mounting detail, with options for internal or external fittings like expanded metal bird guards, security guards, or fly mesh as needed. Continuous horizontal runs can be facilitated with supplied joining plates, ensuring seamless integration and structural integrity across installations.

Backed by CE-AIR's commitment to quality and innovation, our Fixed Pitch Louvers are supported by expert technical assistance for scheme design and product selection, ensuring optimal performance and longevity in diverse environmental conditions. Maintenance guidelines provided by McKenzie-Martin ensure longevity and operational efficiency throughout the louvers' lifecycle, underscoring our dedication to customer satisfaction and operational excellence.

Weather Protection

CE-AIR's Fixed Pitch Weather Louvers are characterized by their robust weather resistance and structural integrity, making them suitable for a wide range of general applications. Depending on blade configuration, they typically weigh between 15-20 kg/m² and offer 45-50% free area, ensuring efficient airflow management while meeting structural requirements.  These louvers are highly customizable in terms of shape and size. Standard & Custom louver blade pitches such as 112mm, 90mm, and 65mm, along with adjustable blade spacings, ensure a uniform appearance tailored to specific design specifications.

Rigorously tested for aerodynamic performance with low coefficients. CE-AIR's Fixed Pitch Weather Louvers deliver reliable airflow control while maintaining optimal energy efficiency. They are available in a standard range of materials including aluminium & steel (galvanised), and for aluminium we offer choices of our standard mill finish or various post-coated finishes such as polyester powder paint, Plastisol, PVDf coatings.

BENEFITS OF FIXED PITCH LOUVERS
Fixed Pitch Louvers play a transformative role in commercial and industrial environments, offering multifaceted benefits in terms of functionality, aesthetics, and protection, and are integral components in modern industrial use, offering not only practical benefits such as improved ventilation and weather protection but also aesthetic enhancements and contributions to sustainable practices. Their versatile applications make them indispensable for enhancing both the functionality and visual appeal of commercial and industrial installations worldwide.

Whether considering drainable versus non-drainable options or integrating them into air handler systems, louvers provide significant advantages:

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and Energy Efficiency: Louver systems integrated into air handler units ensure a consistent flow of fresh air, effectively removing pollutants, allergens, and odors. This enhancement directly contributes to better indoor air quality, fostering a healthier and more comfortable environment for occupants. Properly sized louvers facilitate natural ventilation, reducing reliance on mechanical HVAC systems. This reduction in energy consumption translates to lower utility costs and heightened energy efficiency for commercial properties.
  • Support Green & Sustainable Building Practices: Opting for louvers that enhance energy efficiency aligns with sustainable building practices, reducing a property’s carbon footprint and supporting environmental conservation efforts. Energy-efficient ventilation systems can contribute towards earning certifications such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), showcasing a commitment to sustainability and responsible building practices.
  • Enhanced Privacy and Security: Louver systems provide enhanced privacy and security by acting as physical barriers that deter trespassers and protect against theft or vandalism. Their design makes it challenging for unauthorized individuals to scale or breach, offering both practical security and a psychological deterrent effect.
  • Effective Weather Protection: In regions prone to severe weather conditions like hurricanes or heavy storms, louvers act as a vital defense against water penetration and wind-driven rain. By preventing these elements from compromising indoor air quality, damaging ceilings, filters, or electrical equipment, louvers safeguard both the building’s infrastructure and occupants’ safety.
  • Promotion of Building Health: Louver systems not only protect against weather-related damage but also contribute to maintaining a healthy indoor environment. By facilitating a continuous flow of fresh air while preventing pollutants and allergens from accumulating, louvers help mitigate the formation of harmful mold and bacteria. This proactive approach ensures a productive work environment that prioritizes occupant health and comfort.
  • Aesthetic Appeal (Bonus Benefit): Beyond their functional roles, louvers enhance the aesthetic appeal of buildings. They serve as architectural features that add style and sophistication to the façade, enhancing the overall attractiveness of the property. This visual enhancement can positively influence perceptions among employees, tenants, investors, and potential business partners, contributing to a favorable impression of the property.
