AWV Louvers and Custom Sunshades
The purpose of louvers is to provide ventilation or exhaust air while offering defense against vision, water, and noise intrusion. In addition, the louver designs must give the architect aesthetic flexibility to enhance the building’s appearance. AWV’s broad line of architectural louvers addresses these design objectives.
AWV architectural louvers can be provided in mill, anodized, baked enamel, PVDF (aka Kynar) and other special finishes. AWV is a licensed applicator for Akzo Nobel, PPG and Valspar to meet AAMA painting (2603, 2604 & 2605) specifications.
AWV offers louvers in any style and shape, not just square or rectangular. Full, half and quarter rounds, triangular and other shapes are available. Just send us a sketch of the shape and dimensions required and we’ll engineer a solution.
While architectural louvers are typically constructed of extruded aluminum, special appearances can be provided through a dye-sublimation process to turn ordinary materials into a work of art. AWV transforms the aluminum to look identical to wood grain, marble, granite, masonry, carbon fiber, and any creative digital design to give a project a unique signature appearance.
