What Are Faux Louvered Doors?Faux Louvers vs. Fixed Louvers

With fixed louvered doors the louver blades are fixed at an angle and spaced far enough apart so that there is a gap.  This is so they provide privacy while still allowing airflow.  With Faux lovered doors the louver blades are shaped like a chevron and stacked.  This gives you the look of fixed louvered doors while blocking sound and airflow as well as sight.

Applications for Faux Louvered Doors

Since faux louvered doors give excellent privacy some of the applications are for guest room doors, bathroom doors and maintenance doors.  Keep in mind, however, that since faux louvers block all air flow they should not be used where ventilation is required such as around air handling, refrigeration and  media equipment.

Available Sizes & Costs

As with all of our other designs of shutters and doors, our faux louvered doors are available in any custom size.  We offer faux louvers in 3 different sizes; 1.7/8″, 2.1/2″ and 3.1/2″.  All of which can be installed as hinged, bifold, sliding or pocket doors.

    Can you recommend a faux louvered door and stationary panel for an exterior storage area near a spa?

  • Jim Lapic says:

    Hi Kathy,

    My first question is what will be stored in that area? Sometimes it is best to have a door that allows for ventilation to prevent moisture buildup in the storage area. If it is easier, you can email ( ) or call ( 800.494.4321 ) to discuss.

    Thanks, Jim

    Hi Johnny,

    Thank you for the opportunity to quote on doors for you. I see where you filled out our online quote request form. For the closed louver I will quote both a fixed venting and a fixed non-venting louver. I should have the quotes over to you shortly.

    If it helps, I can also provide door to door quote including the ocean freight. We usually use Aloha Freight and Honolulu Freight Services for shipments to the Pacific and beyond.
