MCDLG now offers AMCA 540 louvers through our premiere HVHZ louver brands: Arrow United Industries and Air Balance.
The AMCA Standard 540, for Wind Borne Debris Impact Resistance, tests a louver’s resilience against projectiles carried by hurricane force winds. Sample louvers are subjected to simulated missile impacts at key points on the louver face. A louver will meet the 540 standards if it remains intact after all points are struck.
Watch the video below to see the AMCA 540 test in action.
