Main Question or Discussion Point

At work we have a shed in full sun. Windows were cut in it to allow airflow. Louvers were installed to keep the rain out. However the sheet metal guys did a HUGE overkill on designing the louvers. I want to propose to my boss to remove half of the louvers so that we can get decent air flow again.

Before I do, I would like a performance test. With all louvers and with half of the louvers. How can I do a performance test?

Attach a ducted fan to the back of the louver and measure the airflow and pressure drop.

But is this a custom or factory made louver? If factory made, the factory will provide its performance.
