Easyscreen Window System with Security

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.

Easyscreen 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 standard heights in the Breezway Easyscreen Frame 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. The sizes for Altair Powerlouvres in an Easyscreen Frame are also highlighted on the right.

Please note:

  • Standard Heights are measured from the lowest visible metal to the uppermost visible metal of the frame and excludes fins.
  • Off Standard Heights that are more than 5mm greater than or less than a Standard Height will have a top fixed blade to achieve the specified height. Off Standard heights that are within 5mm of a Standard Height will not have a fixed top blade.
  • Standard Frame Height + 41mm is unavailable for 152mm Powerlouvre in the Easyscreen Frame.
  • Standard Frame Heights only available for 102mm Powerlouvre in the Easyscreen Frame.
  • Easyscreen Window System with Fixed Galleries consist of 152mm clips and blades spaced as far apart as 102mm clips are spaced on normal galleries. Fixed galleries are permanently fixed with the blades at a 45 degree angle.
  • Easyscreen Window System with Fixed Galleries do no meet water penetration requirements.
  • Easyscreen Window System with Fixed Galleries are only available in standard heights.
  • Refer to the product performance warranty on possible height restrictions for different blade types.
  • Standard sizes will save money and improve lead times.
