Altair® Louvres in Other Window Frames

For a wide range of applications

Altair Louvres are also available in a wide range of window frames. Breezway has developed the Altair Louvre System so window fabricators can install Altair Louvres within their own aluminium or timber frames for residential and commercial applications. This provides the benefits of Altair Louvres while retaining the benefits inherent in the window fabricators own window designs.

The Altair Louvre Component System provides a way for fabricators to include Altair Louvres and Weatherstrip in their window frames.

Altair in other Frames 3D Models

Online viewing of 3D models is a relatively new technology. Viewing 3D models requires a fast internet connection and reasonably high speed computer processor. Viewing may not be possible on some older computers. We recommend Google Chrome for the best viewing results.

NOTE: Whenever you see this symbol logo-mark-25x25 click on an illustration to view a 3D interactive version. Rotate the model by using your left mouse button or pan the model by using your right mouse button. Use your mouse wheel to zoom.

Altair in Other Frames Standard Heights

While Altair 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.

Please note:

  • Weatherstrip, complete with seal, must be used to gain manufacturer’s performance warranty.
  • Altair Weatherstrip does not require notching to accomodate the louvre gallery.
  • Weatherstrips to head and sill add 10mm to overall gallery height.
  • Off Standard Height Galleries that are within 5mm of a Standard Height Gallery will not have a top fixed blade and will therefore require Standard Height Weatherstrip sets.
  • Off Standard Height Galleries that are more than 5mm greater than or less than a Standard Height Gallery will have a top fixed blade and will therefore require Off Standard Height Weatherstrip sets.

Weatherstrip
The same Weatherstrip is used on both the head and sill for standard glass, aluminium and timber louvres.

Off Standard Height Galleries that are within 5mm of a Standard Height Gallery will not have a top fixed blade and will therefore require Standard Height Weatherstrip sets. Off Standard Height Galleries that are more than 5mm greater than or less than a Standard Height Gallery will have a top fixed blade and will therefore require Off Standard Height Weatherstrip sets.

Altair Weatherstrip does not require notching to accommodate the louvre gallery.

Weatherstrip, complete with seal, must be used in the head and sill to satisfy the Breezway Product Performance Warranty.

Weatherstrips to head and sill add 10mm to overall gallery height.
