With society’s increasing demands to make buildings as energy-efficient and environmentally friendly as possible, architects, engineers, contractors, and facility owners must lean on a wide array of partners to help them reach this end.

Who better to trust than American Warming and Ventilation (AWV), a leader in air quality and control since 1904?

AWV offers a wide array of products that can greatly enhance a building’s ability to control its airflow, which can lead to decreased heating and cooling costs while improving air quality for a safe work environment.

Industrial and Architectural Louvers

Industrial and architectural louvers serve as ventilation for exhaust air while providing defense against debris, water, and noise intrusion. 

While the concept is simple, it can be difficult to find louvers that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Fortunately, AWV has a wide array of custom louvers to meet the needs of any situation. The following are among the benefits of AWV’s custom louvers:

  • Aesthetically pleasing – AWV designs its louvers with the idea of enhancing a building’s appearance
  • Diverse options – AWV offers louvers in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, materials, finishes, and coatings to meet a project’s requirements. Some examples include acoustical louvers built with sound absorption materials, extreme weather louvers to protect against hurricanes and high winds, and penthouse louvers to provide an attractive look to rooftops while protecting air intakes and exhaust vents
  • Reduced energy costs – AWV louvers are aerodynamically efficient, with the low air resistance reducing the fan energy required to introduce ventilation air into or exhaust air out of the building

Aluminum Architectural Grilles

Architectural grilles are used to enhance a building’s appearance. They are commonly used as a decorative facade for a building or on the face of parking garages to allow for ventilation while limiting visibility to the parked cars.

The American Warming & Ventilating company is dedicated to designing innovative grilles that can be customized to meet your building’s needs, offering aesthetically pleasing and durable grilles in a wide array of shapes, sizes, materials, finishes, and coatings.

Commercial and Industrial Dampers

With roots deeply entrenched in the design and manufacture of industrial dampers, AWV has over 100 years of experience as a leader in the field. AWV’s different types of dampers can be used for purposes such as controlling temperature and climate across different spaces and limiting the flow of smoke and other toxic air contaminants.

AWV dampers are of the highest quality and customized to serve a number of industries, including transportation, military, marine, nuclear, oil, and petroleum. They are also compliant with contemporary HVAC requirements, ensuring the flow of quality air into commercial office buildings, hospitals, and schools.

In addition to these benefits, AWV places a premium on customer satisfaction for its industrial dampers, with a state-of-the-art AMCA certified independent lab at its manufacturing plant, ensuring that all dampers stand up to quality and performance needs. 

Architectural Vision Screens

Architectural vision screens offer some of the same benefits of louvers, such as ventilation protection and defense against water and debris intrusion.

However, the main purpose of AWV’s vision screens is to limit the visibility of mechanical equipment on or near a building. 

AWV’s vision screens are quality engineered in aesthetically pleasing designs, allowing architects to enhance a building’s appearance while providing optimal functionality.

Architectural Sun Shades

AWV sun shades are designed to enhance a building’s appearance while providing additional protection from the sun, which can help control HVAC costs.

Like all of AWV products, their sun shading devices are available in a wide variety of aesthetically pleasing custom designs. Their lightweight aluminum construction makes them easy to maintain while providing quality structural integrity.
