Welcome to AMCA Certified Sand Louver Program Page

On this page you will find resources to help you optimize the AMCA Certified Sand Louver Program. Please browse through the page to familiarize yourself with AMCA's newest Certified Ratings Program.

Sand louvers protect air systems from wind-driven sand, which can enter mechanical rooms to foul equipment and clog air filters ahead of their normal service life. Certifying sand louvers enables the comparison of manufacturers' ratings for sand rejection based on test data in accordance with ANSI/AMCA Standard 500-L (Rev. 2015), Laboratory Methods of Testing Louvers for Rating.


How to Specify AMCA-Certified Sand Louvers

Because the number of certified sand louver models has reached critical mass, the following language can be added to office, project, and guideline specifications to require AMCA certification:

The sand louver shall be tested in accordance with AMCA Standard 500-L and licensed to bear the AMCA Certified Ratings Program seal for air performance and wind-driven sand in accordance with AMCA Publication 511.
