The C/S Test chamber enables our engineers to test our designs, or your designs, under real world conditions.Wind driven rain simulatordirects vast quantities ofwater at the louver. Up to 19" of water per hour. 2Air HandlingThe equipment directly behind the louver and how 1much air it requires is a major design consideration.

  4. 4. RAIN DEFENSE The Problem With Conventional Louvers The flat design of conventional louver blades does little to prevent wind driven rain from passing through them, even in sheltered areas. Rain Wind driven rain in conventional louver tests allow 48 pints of water to pass through a 4 x 4 louver in one hour at 30 mph velocity. C/S Storm Resistant Louvers Stop Rain and Prevent Costly Damage. The C/S Wind Driven Rain Test Facility (pages 4-5) allows C/S to analyze the performance of all of our louvers. Through experimentation with bending wind, C/S Engineers have designed horizontal and vertical louver systems that allow air in buildings while keeping water out. This horizontal louver is designed to twist the incoming air twice to maximize water removal. Rain water is collected in the horizontal blade drains. Dont let leaky louvers These louvers are up to 100% effective atshut down your building. stopping wind driven rain.Does rain fall straight down?
