Nysan Aerofoil Louvers / Hunter Douglas Contract

Producto6

This month, we’d like to share with you another product from Hunter Douglas Contract, that can help you improve  the energy efficiency of your projects.

The Nysan aerofoil (fin) louvers deflect thermal gain from incident sun, integrating light control into the building envelope. Not only they deliver outstanding functionality, but will also help architects create a distinctive look for the building surface. Well-designed louver configurations can be as striking as they are effective, shading the facade against low or high sun angles while making an aesthetic statement. As with any system, design considerations such as louver size and composition can affect performance.

Key Features

- Single piece extruded Nysan aerofoil louvers from 4″ (100 mm) to 24″ (600 mm) tip to tip.
- Extruded louvers are more durable, while fabricated designs can include perforation to modify their performance.
- Louver shapes, composition, and finish also can be used to create specific daylighting effects as well as establishing a different aesthetic.
- Fabricated Nysan louvers can be created at nearly any size.
- Aerofoil composition is typically metal (aluminum or steel), but many other options exist, including glass and wood.
- Nysan metal louvers typically have an anodized aluminum finish to ensure long product life and minimal maintenance. Other finishes include polyester powder coating and fluorpolymer painting. All resist damage to sun or weather.

System Description

Aerofoil louver systems can be fixed or adjustable, allowing the angle of the louvers to be changed to provide increased levels of . This type of system is more appropriate for east / south-east or west / south-west facing elevations where the sun angle is lower as compared to a southern facing one and as a result, a projecting louver system is not sufficiently effective.
