CS Blast-Resistant Louvers are capable of withstanding high blast loads

Government buildings, VA hospitals, computing centers and power plants are particularly vulnerable to explosive threats. CS has developed six blast-resistant models designed to withstand blasts up to 12 PSI and that can meet the government requirement. This requirement states, "Louvers must remain in their frame and anchored adequately to resist the blast or a catch device...to prevent the louver from becoming a projectile."

Knowing how building louvers will perform is critical to ensuring that it will stand up to real-life conditions on the job. We have our own on-site test chamber that allows us to test to AMCA louver standards.
