KINETICS® KCAC, KCPL, KCAL, KCFL Fixed Blade Acoustic Louvers

Kinetics Fixed Blade Acoustic Louvers are economical, effective, and attractive solution for maximum sound reduction when space is limited. Used as part of the intake and exhaust air systems of buildings, structures, or equipment, Acoustic louvers reduce noise produced by the system’s equipment. Acoustic Louvers have a relatively large surface area which compensates for their lack of depth. Models are available in varying depths, material types, percent open area, and blade configurations yielding various pressure loss and noise reduction performance.

POWDER COAT FINISH

Various finishes are available. TIGER Drylac® Series 38 & 49, or Sherwin Williams POWDURA®, and Kynar 500® (i.e., Fluropon Sherwin Williams, AkzoNobel's TRINAR®, and PPG DURANAR®).

Application

  • Building Ventilation
  • Generator Room Intake and Discharge Vents
  • Incorporated into an Acoustic Barrier Wall System - Cross Ventilation
  • Acoustical Enclosure Ventilation
  • Air-Cooled Chiller Enclosure System
  • Pump Room Ventilation
  • Designed as single or Double Doors - Allowing unfettered access and proper ventilation

Mechanism of Performance

  • The blades are angled to prevent direct line of sight
  • The top of each horizontal blade is solid. The underside of each blade is perforated
  • Blades are filled with acoustic media to absorb sound energy
  • Relatively large absorptive surface area which compensates for lack of depth

Types of Acoustic Louvers

Acoustic Louvers are used as part of the intake/exhaust air system of buildings, structures, or equipment to help reduce noise produced by the system equipment. They have a relatively large surface area which compensates for their lack of depth. Models are available in varying depths, percent open area and blade configurations yielding various pressure loss and noise reduction performance.
