Fixed Blade Acoustic Louvers

Kinetics Fixed Blade Acoustic Louvers are economical, effective and attractive. They are designed for maximum sound reduction when space is limited. They are aesthetically pleasing and available in various material types intended to be used where space is limited.

Applications:

Accessories:

Acoustical Louvers are used as part of the intake/exhaust air system of buildings, structures, or equipment to help reduce noise produced by the system equipment. They have a relatively large surface area which compensates for their lack of depth. Models are available in varying depths, percent open area and blade configurations yielding various pressure loss and noise reduction performance.
