Maximum Airflow with Fixed Aluminium Louvres
Louvreclad’s Cascade Series® is a 100mm pitch fixed aluminium louvre profile suited to projects where maximum airflow is critical to the design. This high-performance and aerodynamic louvre profile has been performance tested and engineered to ensure low pressure drops while providing 64% free open area.
When maximum rain defence is required, the Cascade Series® two-stage aluminium louvres can be specified, which provide Class A 100% effective rain defence. As with all Louvreclad fixed aluminium louvres, the Cascade Series® can be supplied as pre-fabricated louvre panels or as a continuous louvre system with integrated doors as required. Cascade Series® performance louvres are a versatile and superior selection for all commercial and industrial projects.
The Cascade Series® fixed aluminium louvre system is designed, engineered to suit the project with structural design certificates that comply with NCC and all relevant Australian Standards.
Performance Tested to AS/NZS 4740:2000
Single Stage Aluminium Louvre
Louvreclad Cascade Series® high-performance fixed louvre achieves Class 2 for aerodynamics and Class D for rain defence, while providing 64% free open area. This aerodynamic aluminium extruded louvre profile is an ideal choice for mechanical plant rooms, commercial screening and integrating into architectural facades when maximum airflow is a crucial to the design.
Two Stage Aluminium Louvre
Cascade Series® Two-stage louvre achieves Class A for rain defence and Class 2 for aerodynamics in accordance AS/NZS 4740:2000. The double interlocking blades ensure 100% effective rain defence and maximum air flow, providing the perfect balance between these two-compromising factors of rain defence and aerodynamics. Designed for zero vision, the Cascade Series® two-stage fixed louvre can be supplied in prefabricated panels or as a continuous louvre.
The benefit of selecting a performance louvre system with single and two stage options is, you can specify the two-stage option in the areas where rain defence is crucial, and the single stage where rain defence is not required, while still maintaining a continuous louvre aesthetic.
