Our louvered roof over the visitors center at Arches National Park in Utah!
It is also one of our largest roof installations.
This Louver is made from extruded aluminum and is extremely strong and durable.
Within the rafter is a separate hollow channel that can be used for running cables and wiring, as well as areas for future customization such as speakers or LED lighting.

Miami-Dade Building Code Compliance
Louvered Roofs by American Louvered Roof Systems have been calculated to qualify for Miami-Dade County wind requirements which are the toughest in the Country. American Louvered Roof Systems has Engineering specifications for most States and are available to purchase with a wet stamp generic copy or site specific.
Check Your State
Our hurricane wind designs have been evaluated by a Florida licensed Professional Engineer and will meet the wind requirements of the Miami-Dade Building Department and other cities within the high velocity hurricane zone “HVHZ”. In some cases you will need site specific drawings and calculations to specifically indicate to the Building Department the exact configuration of your proposed canopy. You can also visit our engineered generic product evaluation listing on Approval Zoom .
We also have Michigan state high snow load engineering with limits up to 80lbs psf (about 3′ of snow depending on moister content).
Wet stamp engineering plans for most of the U.S., are available for $30 per set plus shipping.
To our knowledge and in-depth research, American Louvered Roof Systems is the only louvered roof product in the World to have these specifications.
