Scope

This European Standard specifies a method for measuring the water rejection performance of louvres subject to simulated rain and wind pressures, both with and without air flow through the louvre under test. For the purpose of tests in this standard, a 1000 mm x 1000 mm section of weather louvre or the nearest possible blade increment is considered. Weather louvres are designed to restrict the passage of water during rainfall while allowing the passage of air into or from an air distribution system or part of a building. They are used in a wide range of applications, where there may be differences in wind speed and direction, levels of local turbulence, rate and droplet size, distribution of rainfall and surface water flow from the surrounding structure.
