Cascade Series® Fixed Aluminium Louvres

Features of Fixed Aluminium Louvres:

  • Extruded aluminium performance louvres
  • High open area for maximum airflow
  • Ideal for applications where low pressure drops are specified
  • Can be specified as pre-fab modular panels or as continuous louvres

Details of Fixed Aluminium Louvres:

  • 64% free open area – Single-Stage / 50% free open area – Two-Stage
  • 100mm blade pitch
  • Maximum blade span: 1000mm
  • Maximum blade length: 6500mm
  • Designed, engineered and certified for incidental live load

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

Louvreclad Cascade Series® high-performance 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

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 louvre can be supplied in pre-fabricated 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.
