Louvers as manufactured by Metallic Products are specifically designed for pre-engineered
metal building wall panels. Both fixed and operable models are available. Louvers
are self-flashing requiring no additional flashing to complete installation
in standard "R" and "A" type wall panels. Additionally,
the frame design allows the louvers to be installed individually, one above
the other or side by side, without the need for additional mullions or frames.
Modular Louvers are constructed of 18GA. frames and 20GA. blades, G90 galvanized steel. Frame construction enables easy installation of single or multiple units interconnected. The self-flashing frame is designed specifically for either "A" type or "R" type flanges. Please specify panel type when ordering. The frame has a recessed head to accept the wall panel and side flanges fit specified panel profile on 1' modules. The sill is tapered to provide drainage and exclude moisture. Flat flange louvers are also available for installation into framed openings. (Note: Self-flashing louvers can be made to fit framed openings if specified when ordering.) All welds are water tight and made from noncorroding siliconized bronze wire and finished after fabrication.
Fixed louvers feature 45 deg. roll-formed blades, with 4" depth, and riveted to louver frame for security. Fixed louvers have 55% free area.
Adjustable louvers feature roll-formed blades with plated twin link pivot brackets riveted to blade and connected with 14" zinc plated rod and assembled with brass pivot and set screw for smooth, noncorrosive, long-lasting operation. Standard operator is by reinforced cast aluminum hand crank. Louver can be factory or field modified for chain operation when louver is installed where hand crank is not accessible. Motorized operators are also available. Blade edge seals are installed for maximum air sealing. Adjustable louvers have 77% free area, when fully opened to a 90 deg. angle.
Louvers are available with galvanized finish or can be factory painted utilizing an electrostatic polyester powder paint and oven baked for long lasting and durable finish. Additional materials available are stainless steel, aluminum and aluminized zinc. All louvers are shipped with an 1816 aluminum insect screen mounted in a removable, rewireable frame. Hardware cloth is also available. Louvers are shipped individually in heavy duty cardboard cartons.
