The Ventüer VL-100CM aluminium louvre system is a clip-fixed screening louvre that can be attached directly to structural columns or set within a 150mm channel perimeter frame.
While it does not have a high level of rain defence, it does have a low pressure drop and is ideal for plant screens and other areas where water ingress is not important.
Available in a wide range of standard powdercoat colours, the VL-100CM is manufactured to order and can be fabricated in a wide range of sizes. Independently tested and certified to BS/EN:13030.
The VL-100CM should not be used as a weather louvre due to its low resistance to wind driven rain.
Installation requirements for the VL-100CM louvre system vary dependent on the site wind loads, louvre panel sizes, cladding type and primary structure detailing. Ventüer provides full shop drawings for all installations which show sequencing, fixing type and sizing, flashing requirements and sealant details. Installers should make themselves fully conversant with these shop drawings prior to installation commencing.
The VL-100CM louvre system was developed in New Zealand in 2016. Since that time it has been used extensively on a wide range of projects including storage facilities, industrial buildings and education facilities throughout New Zealand. Refer to the Ventüer website for detailed case studies.
Performance tested for weather resistance and airflow performance to BS/EN:13030, the VL-100CM is classified as follows:
Engineered to withstand site-specific structural, seismic and wind loads in accordance with NZS:1170.
Fixings, flashings and sealant details are designed to comply with NZ Building Code Clause E2.
Warranty information and maintenance requirements to comply with B2 can be found in the Ventüer Aluminium Ventilation Louvre Operation & Maintenance Manual.
All Ventüer ventilation louvre systems are fabricated from aluminium which is extruded locally here in New Zealand. The majority of this aluminium is "green aluminium", meaning that the electricity for smelting is supplied from renewable energy sources (such as is the case with Tiwai Point, which relies on hydro-power).
Any waste generated during manufacture is fully recycled, as can be any louvres at the end of their useful life.
All powdercoating of louvre components is carried out by certified applicators and the use of chromate treatment processes is strictly avoided.
Effective use of passive ventilation devices such as louvre systems can significantly reduce the energy consumption of a building, reducing both its carbon footprint and whole of life cost.
Ventuer designs and supplies engineered natural and mechanical ventilation products and systems for commercial, industrial and high-density residential construction projects.Product Enquiries
