What is a Louvre?

Louvre systems are popular with designers for many applications in industrial and commercial buildings. They can have many purposes, including anything from controlling light entry or providing ventilation, to providing screening and attenuation (noise reduction) – or a combination of these. 

What does a Louvre look like?

As you can see, Louvres can look very attractive, and so can also be provided simply for aesthetic impact. Acoustic Louvres provide attenuation (noise reduction) whilst maintaining required air flow.

More often than not, people need Acoustic Louvres to provide attenuation (noise reduction) whilst maintaining a required air flow.

Typically used in building openings, they reduce airborne noise while allowing continued airflow. They are also used as acoustic screens around mechanical plants where equipment requires airflow. They are often needed when heat build up is a serious factor in the design of a building. A louvre will allow for a flow of fresh air needed, whilst also reducing the level of noise on the surroundings.

Here at Airmatic, our acoustic louvres come in a range of depths and styles, such as single or double bank and can be made to suit architectural needs. Where size and design limitations mean that a full enclosure is not possible, small acoustic louvre solutions can be used to prevent heat build up, whilst reducing noise levels

Our capabilities are extensive, and we can design and manufacture of small acoustic louvres to be fitted into doors, to full acoustic louvre compounds, which would be used to house building services plant.

We always work to design and specify acoustic louvre systems that will give the required amount of attenuation whilst simultaneously meeting the airflow requirements of the plan. Do you want to know more about our louvres and other acoustic solutions? For more information, please call our friendly team today on: 0161 764 4004.
