Application

Suitable for residential, multi-residential, educational and commercial applications where ventilation will be used to deliver naturally comfortable indoor conditions.

Description

Allowing more ventilation than any other window type, louvre windows have been used for generations to create naturally comfortable buildings. Modern Altair Louvres by Breezway are award-winning, cyclone rated and are an energy efficient window option for your next project.

This provides the benefits of Altair Louvres while retaining the benefits inherent in the window manufacturers own window designs.


Features and benefits:

  • Maximum ventilation
  • Extensive testing for proven performance and compliance.
  • Widest range of customising choices.
  • Can be installed into a variety of framing types.
  • Pinned design that mechanically retains blades within the clips to prevent blade dislodgement under human impact (optional with the Stronghold System)
