GDL Louvre Selection Tool

Welcome to the new GDL Louvre selection guide. To use this, insert your known data in the grey boxes below
and the program will select a suitable square external louvre based on this. If you require a rectangular unit just
insert the preferred height or width of the louvre and the other dimension will be calculated for you. The
dimensions given are applicable to GDL products only and cannot be assumed to be correct for any other
manufacturers products. GDL would welcome any feedback on this along with any other selection options you
would like to see added.

LOUVRE SELECTION IF VOLUME AND VELOCITY KNOWN


Please note that all louvres have been based on a free area of
Step 1: Select Louvre model required (50 or 70mm pitch): 50 Pitch louvre 48%. This may reduce on smaller louvre sizes. Insect mesh
Step 2: Input Air Volume (m³/s) - 0.05 reduces the free area by approx. 15%
Step 3: Input Face Area Velocity (m/s) - 2.5
