Standard Louvres - Technical Information

The standard louvre system offers a range of high performance extruded aluminium louvres with comprehensive framing systems to suit all applications including glazing, curtain walling, integrated façades and architectural cladding systems. The system is available in 60, 80 and 100mm pitches and may be supplied in interlocking, continuous or modular formats with pre-assembled mullions and metal clips.

Configuration

The standard louvre system can be supplied in a modular format i.e. factory assembled in frames, or "site built" continuous. Irrespective of format each opening will comprise a variety of the following items.

Front Louvre blades

There are three commonly used profile blades which can be identified by their vertical spacing - 60, 80 and 100mm. The blades are supplied to site in long lengths, typically of around 6m. The blades join on metal clips with a small gap for thermal expansion and structural movement. The effect is of a continuous appearance with hidden mullions and no visible fixings.

Performance

The performance of the standard and Smoothflow louvre has been proven by laboratory and site testing and also verified by the use of the latest computer modelling techniques.

Second and third pass louvre blades

Each of the front louvre blades has a corresponding set of rear blades which are, typically, up to 1.25m long. These blades provide additional high levels of weathering. They are either supplied as factory assembled modules or loose for site assembly.

The mullion system is designed for a complete knockdown louvre system. There are 2 basic mullions - standard and extra. The mullion type is selected according to wind load requirements. The louvre blade mounting clips are factory fitted to the mullions.
