BL50IC Series. Inverted chevron louvre

Aluminium extrusions type 6063-T6 to BS1474 having a minimum thickness of 1.6mm. Mitred frame joints TIG welded for additional strength.

The louvre comprises double banked louvre blades inclined at 45° at 50mm pitch within 100mm or 140mm deep frame. Galvanised bird screen supplied as standard. Frames can be flanged for surface mounting or recessed to give frameless appearance. The bottom blade is extended over the outer frame to prevent ingress of water and provide drainage from the louvre face.

The front blades are angled vertically to direct airflow upwards. This format can be used for a whole panel, or just part of a panel, with a standard blade profile to the remainder.

Louvre blades secured by a minimum of four no.8 x 19 screws per blade to provide robust assembly. Louvres over 1000mm wide include flat bar stiffener to rear to further increase strength.
