Choosing the right window framing system can be complex and is best discussed with your window manufacturer. Breezway has three framing systems that are available through approved window manufacturers. The Easyscreen, Innoscreen and SL2 Window Systems all have differing purposes as outlined below. In addition many Australian window manufacturers have designed their own aluminium or timber framing systems to suit Altair Louvre componentry. Breezway also offers the Dualair Component System for Alspec’s McArthur and Hunter Evo Framing Systems for commercial applications. Please note: There are no standard bay widths. Typically a louvre bay width (i.e the length of the blade) can be 600mm to 900mm, however Breezway can offer bay widths up to 1200mm if using the Stronghold System (please refer to the Product Performance Warranty for more information).
