Operable Louvre / Natural Smoke and Heat exhaust Ventilator

Louvreclad’s Galaxy Series® is an operable louvre system that provides a ready-made solution for both natural, smoke and fire ventilation purposes.

CSIRO tested, the Galaxy Series is designed for the most demanding of environments including Category C and D Cyclone Regions. The ability to operate with the highest levels of reliability and safety while achieving complete weather performance provides peace-of mind for designers, builders and most of all occupants. This Louvre design can be operated via manual handles but is more commonly operated via pneumatic cylinders or electric actuators. A spring to open/close configuration is available with thermal links to enable fail-safe operation for fire venting.
