Louvres are used on most buildings in some form or another. Louvre systems usually provide airflow, both intake and exhaust, while protecting these openings against rain. Often the better a louver is at letting air through, the worse it is likely to be at keeping water out. A standard louvre will provide the maximum airflow required with some degree of rain defence. The standard louvers tend to be preferred for projects where the high free area is important and occasional water penetration will not cause significant problems.
Performance Louver is a louver whose profiles are Aerodynamically designed to maximize airflow through with minimum resistance and rainwater is a trap and collect to louver mullion drain system. Performance louvre is weather louver that is tested to EN 13030 Standard with wind-driven rain at Velocity 13 m/s and rain spray at 75 L/h plus. Air suction at 0 – 3.5 m/s by BSRIA (UK).
