Louvers | Thin-line Louvers

Thin line louvers are perfect for installation into curtain walls, storefronts, window, glazing, and for individual packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) grille applications.  Their thin frames (1-3/8" -2" depth in total) allow for installation in places that traditional louvers cannot fit.  

The visual appeal of a building can be greatly enhanced by the addition of thin-line louvers for architectural reasons: the eye-catching parallel straight lines created by the inclusion of thin-line louvers onto the building walls can draw attention to salient features, highlight the building contours, and provide an aethetic balance of form and function. Finishing the louvers with powder coat to match the tone of the structure allows for their further incorporation into the themes of the building and the architect's vision.

Safe-Air Dowco fabricates a variety of thin-line louver products custom designed to meet the needs of the individual project: we have thin-line drainable blade, chevron-bladed for weather protection, and straight-bladed high free area louvers for both architectural appeal and PTAC applications.
