Abstract

The drawing shows a louver that can be easily constructed to any selected size. The louver has a series of slats 2 that are supported at a selected angle (typically 45 Degrees) by means of channel members 3. A channel member 3 has slots 4 that are formed at the angle at which the slats 2 are to be fixed. The inner edges 5 of slots 4 are formed at right angles to the slot sides 6 to form a secure fit when the slats 2 are assembled in the channel members 3.

Louver

The drawing shows a louver that can be easily constructed to any selected size. The louver has a series of slats 2 that are supported at a selected angle (typically 45 Degrees) by means of channel members 3. A channel member 3 has slots 4 that are formed at the angle at which the slats 2 are to be fixed. The inner edges 5 of slots 4 are formed at right angles to the slot sides 6 to form a secure fit when the slats 2 are assembled in the channel members 3.

A slat 2 has an opening 7 at a location to receive a keeper strip 8 within a channel member 3 when the slats are in place.

The louver can be made of any selected height by cutting channel members 3 and keeper strips 8 to the appropriate length. The louver can be made to any selected width by cutting slats 2 to a selected length and appropriately locating openings 7.
