Gable/Wall Louvers

 

Wall louvers are installed in the gable end of the attic. The higher they are placed, the more effective they become as exhaust vents. Wall louvers are not preferred for ventilating an attic, because they provide limited airflow under the roof deck, resulting in "hot spots."

 

Description

Wall louvers are installed in the gable end of the attic. The higher they are placed, the more effective they become as exhaust vents. Wall louvers are not preferred for ventilating an attic, because they provide limited airflow under the roof deck, resulting in "hot spots."

 

Rectangular Wall Louvers

  • Aluminum construction
  • Flush flange
  • Mill finish or Baked White Enamel
  • Sizes: 8" x 8", 8" x 12", 12" x 12", 12" x 18", 14" x 24" and 18" x 24"


Benefits:

Can be used where ridge vents are impractical, or where the homeowner doesn't want roof vents


Design Considerations:

Adequate soffit venting must be used to meet typical ventilation code requirements
If used in place of soffit venting, two louvers of adequate size should be installed on each end of home
Must be placed high to be an exhaust vent
