Altair Component Louvre is also available in a wide range of window frames. Breezway has developed the Altair Louvre System so we can install Altair Louvres within ours, or house owners aluminium, timber residential applications. This provides the benefits of Altair Louvres while retaining the benefits inherent in the window manufacturers own window designs.The Altair Louvre Component System provides a way for window manufacturers to include Altair Louvres, Weatherstrip, Powerlouvre and security bars in their window frames.

Altair Louvres with Manual Operation

Altair Powerlouvre in Other Frames

For projects where Powerlouvre Windows are desired in a framing system other than the Breezway Easyscreen Window System, Altair Powerlouvre Windows are available in component form.

The Altair Powerlouvre Component System can be assembled and fitted by approved fabricators into selected timber and flat aluminium frames that are wider than 65mm. Breezway Component Powerlouvre head and sill weatherstrips must be used.

Please consult Breezway for frame compatibility advice.

Security Bar Systems

Security bars are an effective barrier when the louvre is open, that unlike screens do not reduce any air flow. Breezway has security bars available to fit 152mm (6”) blade heights with 16mm diameter solid aluminium bars fixed to the window frame to the outside of the blades and positioned to allow the window to open fully. Altair Security Bars will have a moderate effect on views with 16mm solid bars and 124mm vertical spacings between bars. Please see below the options available including Altair Louvres with Security Jamb and D Bar and Altair Louvres with U Channel Security and Round Bar.

Component louvre in Other Frames Standard Heights

While Altair component Louvre Windows can be manufactured in any size specified, the wind and water rating for the building project will affect the maximum allowable window height and bay width. Please refer to the Altair Product Performance Warranty for technical information.

For Altair Louvre Gallery standard heights please see the size chart on the right. Off Standard heights are available but this will add cost and result in a fixed louvre blade to act as a filler piece. Some off-standard heights are unavailable when using the 102mm Altair Louvre Galleries with the Stronghold System. For the Altair Component System these include: Standard Height + 19mm to Standard Height + 30mm.
