Roll-formed louvre profile

Louvreclad’s Varsity Series® is a traditional roll formed colour coated steel louvre profile fabricated with precision sheet metal construction. This 125mm pitch aerodynamic louvre profile  provides outstanding air flow performance and low pressure drops making it the ideal ventilation and screening solution when air flow is critical.

Where rain defence is concern there is also the option to add a second stage to the louvre. Varsity Series® 2 Stage louvre profile integrates our roll formed Venus Series® chevron louvre profile which together maintain maximum air flow while also providing Class A 100% rain defence.  Or, if zero vision screening is required, Varsity Series® roll formed louvres are frequently installed inverted.

The Varsity Series® is a fixed single, or two stage louvre. (The second stage is Venus Series®) and can be supplied cut to length or as pre-assembled panels.

Performance Tested to AS/NZS 4740:2000


Louvreclad Varsity Series® 125mm pitch high-strength roll formed single stage louvre system achieves a Class D for rain defence and a Class 2 for aerodynamics with face velocities up to 1.4m/s and Class 1 rating from 1.4-3.4ms while providing 53% free open area. An excellent screening and ventilation louvre for all applications that require maximum aerodynamics and where rain defence is less important.


Performance tested to AS/NZS 4740:2000, the Varsity Series® 62.5 pitch roll formed 2 Stage louvre provides Class A 100% effective rain defence and Class 3 Aerodynamics at velocities from 0.5-3.5m/s. This two stage louvre offers 42% free open area with an aerodynamic louvre profile that provides good air flow, low pressure drops  maximum rain defence where required.
