15 May 2013 - Aldes Middle East, a leading global solutions provider for fire protection, ventilation and air distribution and the local arm of Aldes Group, has announced the Middle East launch of six new louver models that have been fully certified by the Air Movement and Control Association International (AMCA). The products include the AG 638A and the AG 639A (Fresh air louvers); the AG 644 and the AG 644A (Sand trap louvers) and the SU 631 and the SU 632 (Acoustic louvers). All models have been tested and rated in conformance with AMCA International's test standards and rating requirements-- giving complete assurance and peace of mind to Aldes' target market consisting of Middle East specifiers, engineers and developers.
The AG 638A and the AG 639A can be generally installed on outside walls and used either for fresh air intake or polluted air exhaust in commercial, residential and industrial premises. These fresh air louvers are manufactured in extruded aluminum construction (frame / blades) with RAL 9010 surface finish as standard supply. Meanwhile, the AG 644 and the AG 644A are sand trap louvers that is mainly used for air intake and serves as a pre-filter for the protection of air conditioning plants located near dusty environments or deserts. The Aldes ME sand trap louvers are self-cleaning and maintenance free. Lastly, the SU 631 and the SU 632 are acoustic louvers used for either fresh air intake or polluted air exhaust in commercial, residential and industrial premises. Both models are designed to provide optimal noise attenuation with minimal airflow restriction.
“The AMCA certification of these louver models proves to be very timely and strategic as the Middle East region in general and the UAE in particular is currently witnessing an ever-increasing need of tested and certified quality products for the construction industry,” said Yannick Applasamy, Marketing Manager, Aldes ME. “Our louvers have been found to comply with AMCA International's rigorous test standards and rating requirements—a world class mark that specifiers and engineers favour in their search for the perfect louver to use in their projects. Moreover, the launch of these new louver models demonstrates our continuing commitment to provide our Middle East clients with best-in-class solutions for air distribution & ventilation.”
According to Aldes ME senior executives, the release of the AMCA-certified louvers complement the company's philosophy to provide high quality and reliable air distribution & ventilation products to its clients in the region.
