The Aquarius™ XLINE-AQ50 louvre system features a solid, ‘Z’ section, extruded aluminium louvre blade profile set to a 50mm vertical pitch spacing. The XLINE-AQ50 louvre system can be used to provide louvre panels suitable for incorporating into curtain walling or window systems, cladding openings or as a larger roof louvre or ventilation screening system to the building. The louvre blades are fitted back to ‘hidden’ vertical support mullions to provide a continuous, unbroken appearance. Alternatively the system can be supplied with recess flashing sections to provide vertical ‘feature’ breaks along the perimeter length of the louvre screen.
Selection of the Aquarius™ XLINE-AQ50 louvre system is usually recommended to provide higher levels of weather performance and allow low to moderate air volumes to pass through the louvre, with corresponding low inlet/discharge velocities and pressure drops.
A ‘double bank’ chevron blade profile variant is available, which provides even greater rain defence properties, should this be a critical issue to the building’s weather tightness. This louvre can provide a Class A weather performance rating up to 1.5m/s suction velocity.
