When you need a high performance louver to provide airflow while eliminating water penetration in wind-driven rain conditions, specify Metropolitan's Series of High Performance Louvers.  Miami-Dade County Approved is available (see below).

 

We have a specific High Performance louver to meet standards PA-201, -202, and -203.  MDI® specialty louvers are designed to withstand severeHi Performance Wall Louvers - By Metropolitan Door Industries 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. 

  • PA-203 is a cyclic wind pressure test, which simulates the forces applied to a louver by repeated wind gusts.
