Continuous Fixed Louvre

A continuous fixed blade natural ventilation louvre system in-situ

Introduction


Continuous Fixed Louvres comprises of louvre blades mounted onto vertical concealed supporting mullions. Individual modules are joined together to form banks of unlimited height and width.

Application

The continuous fixed louvre is suitable for use in commercial and industrial applications requiring large areas of louvres with a continuous unbroken appearance free of vertical lines. The louvres are offered with a range of blade pitches and can be fitted into all manner of building openings.
Can be manufactured from the same material as adjacent metal cladding to give a colour and finish match.

Weathering

Offering characteristics of typical single bank louvre systems Continuous Fixed Louvres are suitable for use in most general applications.

Sizes

Standard louvre pitches include 127mm & 95mm, however other blade pitches are available on request.

Aerodynamic Testing

The unit was subjected to a series of independently controlled tests to determine the aerodynamic performance of the design.

Aerodynamic co-efficient 127mm pitch – 0.384
Aerodynamic co-efficient 95mm pitch – 0.297

Weights and Free Areas

Dependant upon blade configuration, generally 12-17kg/m² and 45-50% free area.
