S-system Clips 80-R Louver

The 80-R louver is one of the louver types of the S-system, that doesn't use the standard S-clip. It requires a custom slat clip. That is because the standard S-clip has been designed for extruded louvers. The 80-R, however, is roll formed, and because of that much thinner than the extruded louvers.

The clip is a two part mechanism. Jointly, the pivot arm and slat clip determine the position of the louver; from open to close, and any position in between.

Pivot arm

Sketch of pivot arm S-systemThe pivot arm is pressed into the top track of the rack. This makes a clipping sound, and the reason this part of the assembling process is called clipping.

Slat clip

Retaining spring
