Airolite introduces Louver Type AFG501, a 5.5 inch deep, severe duty extruded aluminum louver that protects exterior wall penetrations on FEMA 320 or 361 compliant storm shelters or safe rooms. The AFG501’s design incorporates inverted V style blades that lend high free area, excellent resistance to water penetration and very low airflow resistance, while providing maximum protection against extremely high wind loads and wind-borne debris. Licensed to bear the AMCA seal for Water Penetration and Air Performance, Louver AFG501’s UL Classified wind-storm rated assembly can withstand wind loads up to +/- 300 PSF and passes the ICC 500 debris impact standard of a 15 lb. 2x4 traveling at 100 MPH.
Manufactured of extruded aluminum, Airolite louvers can be specified with a variety of options in a broad array of architectural finishes for durability and compatibility with adjacent components.
