2 INCH FIXED ALUMINUM LOUVERS TAB:
Our standard 2 inch fixed aluminum louver vents are 2 inches in depth with a 1-1/4 inch front mounting flange. The frame and the blades are unique to Plan B Manufacturing Inc, providing consistent quality and performance. While similar frames and blades are on the market, we feel that ours are the best for the standard riveted louvers. The mitered cut frame and riveted blades are constructed of heavy duty .055 inch thick aluminum extruded in the United States of America. The frames have a rounded edge for a classic look. Our unique louver blades have a return at the top to help repel wind driven rain. We offer paintable mill finish, white powder coat semi-gloss finish, or custom powder coat colors (call for custom color price, also see Service/FAQ web page). Our standard 2 inch louver vent comes with ¼ inch grid, 23-gage galvanized bird screen on the back. Insect screen or bird screen with dust filters are available options. These vents are great for commercial or residential applications. Specify the opening size to the nearest ¼ inch. Front mounting Flange Frame style louvers are manufactured ½ inch undersize to allow for possible out of square openings. Our Door Louvers are the same style, but the louver thickness is adjustable to fit doors 1-5/8 inch to 2-3/4 inch thick. Door Louvers come with an additional frame for the back of the door that slips over the main louver’s sides within the door.
2 inch Fixed Aluminum Louvers are also available with welded construction; frame and blades. Frame styles included Front Flange, Channel Frame or Tube Frame. Material is extruded aluminum shapes for superior strength vs. sheet metal construction. Welded louvers are ideal for use in vehicles and/or trailers that need ventilation for equipment such as generators, pumps, compressors, computers, etc. The welded construction can handle the vibration occurring during transport. Welded louvers are also used in some commercial building construction since they are made with 1/8 inch thick extruded aluminum shapes. Welded louvers are also used for larger louvers and for custom shapes such as triangle. Our Tugboat Style Louver has the flange in the rear of the louver for installing from the inside of an opening with the louver body facing outward vs. inward as with standard front flange louvers.
Some popular applications for our standard and welded 2 inch Fixed Aluminum Louvers: Gable Vents (rectangular and triangular), Foundation Vents, Door Transoms, Petitions, Air Conditioner Exhaust Vents, Cross Venting for confined spaces such as boiler rooms, equipment rooms, transport trailers, etc. Our louvers can be modified for vision block for privacy applications in doors, petitions, etc. by reducing the spacing between the blades or by using different shapes for the blades.
We make all louvers to order in our facility, controlling quality and lead time completely. Typically, all front flange style louvers are made ½ inch undersize to allow for opening squareness issues during installation. Powder coating is available via 3rd party providers and available in standard RAL colors or we can match to your needs.
Estimates are available on the website. Simply enter the size of the rough opening that the louver will be installed, width x height. It is important to list width 1st, even if it is a higher value than the height. The width determines the number of louver blades required for optimal air flow and ensures that the blades will run horizontally when installed.
