Airline Specialty Louver LSA6D-DC
Specialty Louvers Airline specialty louvers are designed to withstand severe weather conditions. In order to obtain Miami-Dade County certification, louvers must pass up to four standardized tests in which they are subjected to hurricane wind and rain conditions. These tests are known as Protocol and Application Standards, or PA's. PA-100(A) tests the louver's resistance to wind-driven rain penetration. PA-201 simulates the wind-driven debris that is often present during hurricanes. PA-202 tests the louver's ability to withstand high levels of static air pressure. Finally, PA-203 is a cyclic wind pressure test, which simulates the forces applied to a louver by repeated wind gusts. Airline's LSA6D45-DC louver meets standards PA-201, 202, and 203. The LSA5CDD and LSA8CDD models are specialty louvers designed to eliminate water penetration in wind-driven rain conditions.
|Airline Louvers provides three finish options: Kynar Painted, Baked Enamel and Anodized. The color samples provided below are as close as possible to the actual colors. However, due to varying monitors and browsers colors may be modified. Samples of the actual finish are available upon request. Please contact a representative for more information and for custom louvers/custom colors. |
Kynar Painted Finish
Finish thickness 1.2 mils.
Trinar finishing of architectural metal building components is the key to creating elegance that endures. These coatings are based on Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 fluoropolymer finish, factory applied and oven baked, on aluminum, galvanized steel and zinc-aluminum alloy substrates. This combination produces a tough, flexible, strongly bonded finish-one with the exceptional formability to allow architectural expression in virtually any shape. All Trinar coatings are 70% formulations of Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 polyvinylidine fluoride resin. This fluoropolymer forms one of chemistry's stongest molecular bonds. It accounts for the exceptional durability of Trinar finishes.
These examples represent Airline's standard Trinar colors. Kynar XL, and custom-matched colors are available at additional cost.

Baked Enamel Finish
This finish is designed for highly visible applications, which require a more cost-effective color match.
Finish thickness 1.8 mils.
Standard color finishes utilize the latest in powder coating technology. These finishes are formulated from polyester-urethane resins that, when cross-linked by oven curing, provide excellent adhesion and resistance to weathering, corrosion, abrasion, and chemical stain.
These examples represent Standard colors. Other colors and custom-matched colors are available in spray enamels at additional cost.
| Anodized Finish |
This finish is designed for situations where other anodized elements need to be matched closely.
All exposed surfaces of aluminum work shall receive an architectural anodized finish in conformance with Aluminum Association Designation AA-M10C22A21 for 204R1 clear, AA-M10C22A41 for 215 R1 clear, or AA-M10C22A44 for color anodize.
Clear Anodizing peroxides aluminum surfaces to provide a uniform satin finish that resists the natural oxidizing that would normally occur with mill finish aluminum. The 204R1 provides a .4 mil coating thickness and is normally used for normal weather exposure. When corrosive or abrasive atmospheric conditions exist, the 215R1 .7 mil coating is recommended.
Color Anodize provides a .7 mil protective coating with an electrolytically deposited color.
These color samples serve as a reference to identify the color selected. The appearance of an anodized finish is influenced by factors such as alloy, temper, gloss, surface structure, and color process. This should be taken into consideration if trying to match colors for other products on a project. Anodize colors will vary slightly form one batch to another.
These examples represent Airline's standard colors. Other colors are available at additional cost.
