At Economy Metal Works, we produce a wide variety of louvers, including louvers specifically for industrial and heavy duty applications. We’ve produced industrial louvers for customers in the construction, petrochemical, oil & gas and power generation industries, where common conditions can include tough and corrosive environments.
Louvers for Heavy Duty Applications
Our industrial louvers are essentially heavy duty louvers – reinforced versions of our standard louvers. Like everything we do at EMW, our heavy-duty, industrial louvers are custom manufactured to meet customer requirements. The degree of strength and reinforcement of the industrial louvers we fabricate are based completely upon your specific needs and requirements.
A louver is an assembly of slanted blades (also known as plates or fins) designed to permit a flow of air while deflecting things as objects, dirt, or wind-driven water. Heavy-duty louvers for industrial applications are reinforced for tough duty, where high velocities of air are expected. They might have to stand up to flying objects, or be able to absorb occasional impacts from heavy equipment passing by.
Like all of the louvers we fabricate, we offer our heavy duty, industrial louvers in mild carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel and aluminum. We also offer a variety of finishing options in-house at our metal fabrication shop.
Formed to Fit Your Requirements
Our heavy duty, industrial louvers are created through a metal forming process (not through a metal extrusion process), which gives us the flexibility required to manufacture a unique louver product that fits the requirements of each customer’s application. EMW’s metal forming process also allows for the manufacture of a heavy-duty louver that meets close tolerances.
EMW is a full service metal fabricator offering a wide range of capabilities in the manufacture of industrial louvers and a vast range of other products. These capabilities include:
- Rolling up to 1/4" x 8' long
- CAD/CAM design and programming
- Water jet precision cutting with a 12'x12' working envelope and dual cutting heads
- Saw, torch, and plasma cutting
- CNC precision shearing up to 12 ft. in 1/4" carbon steel, 3/8" aluminum and 3/16" stainless steel
- 12' press brakes up to 350 tons with CNC back gauging
- MIG and TIG welding of all alloys (GMAW, FCAW, GTAW certified welders and welding to ASME Sec. IX & AWS D1.1 code)
- CNC punching up to 1/4" plate
We have finishing options (powder coat or wet paint) available when needed. Although we are not paint experts by trade or claim to be, we do offer coating/application services through outside sources. All coating will be at the customer's request and specification. To ensure that our customers receive the proper coatings for their applications, we require the customer's approval on their specifications prior to coating. EMW does not make coating recommendations for any application. Essentially, you tell us the kind of coating or finish you need or prefer and we will make sure that coating or finish is applied properly.
Whether you have CAD drawings ready or just verbal instructions to provide, you can be confident that EMW has the experience, know-how and determination to follow-through on your project and manufacture custom industrial louvers that will fit your application.
