David L. Lawrence Convention Center
The David L. Lawrence Convention Center needed to stop wind driven rain (WDR) from entering the building.
The 1.5 million sq. ft. center incorporates CS Storm Resistant RS-7305 louvers to stop wind-driven rain from entering the building. The louvers are 7” deep fixed horizontal louvers and are designed to allow free flowing air to circulate the convention center.
