Dualair Secondary Glazed Louvre Component System
Application

Secondary glazed unit for multi-residential or commercial applications, particularly those with high Rw or low U-value requirements.

Description

An Altair Louvre Component System in a secondary glazed configuration within a 150mm commercial frame with partial pressure equalisation for superior water penetration resistance and high acoustic and thermal insulation.


Features and benefits:

  • Water penetration resistance up to 620Pa at floor to ceiling window sizes
  • Maximum ventilation
  • Excellent sound acoustics to reduce outdoor noise – Rw ratings up to 35.
  • U-values ranging from 2.4 to 3.3 give comparable performance to double glazed windows with thermally broken frames.
  • Use aluminium or patterned glass blades on outer blades to provide shading and privacy.
  • Pinned design that mechanically retains blades within the clips to prevent blade dislodgement under human impact (optional with the Stronghold System)
