Cooling and ventilation: Louvre windows


Natural cool breezes and cross ventilation throughout a building is the most essential component of passive and energy efficient design

To maximise the flow of these natural breeze-paths into your building designs, why not consider Breezway Altair™ Louvre Windows as they are an innovative, energy efficient window option that open twice as wide as regular windows to capture cooling breezes as effectively as possible.

With the use of louvres on external walls, you can take advantage of natural air flow to improve the quality of indoor air and help keep the building at a comfortable temperature without the need for artificial heating or cooling systems. As a result, embodied energy and building emissions can be significantly reduced, thereby improving the environment we live in for years to come.

Breezway Louvre Windows are also very versatile as they can be custom made to fit into almost any space required, be it tall, short, wide or narrow to provide the minimum ventilation and daylight floor area requirements.

Internal louvres are another great way to encourage breeze-paths throughout your building design to naturally cool and refresh the environment. These windows can be closed when privacy is required with the incorporation of aluminium (available in a range of colours) or Western Red Cedar timber blades.

For those seeking automated window alternatives, the sleek, elegant and sophisticated design of the Breezway Powerlouvre™ Window (now available with Bluetooth compatibility), is ideal for out-of-reach locations. With no external rods or motors, Powerlouvre™ Windows can be used for night purging where hot stale air can escape through windows up high, allowing fresh, cool breezes to flow in at night and be retained for early morning starts.

When closed, Breezway Altair™ Louvre Windows provide the tightest sealing to ensure superior wind and water performance to withstand Australia’s harsh weather conditions.

Manufactured from non-corrosive materials with strict adherence to Australian and International standards, and exhaustive testing in a NATA certified laboratory ensure that Altair™ Louvre Windows give the best performance possible from a louvre window. Windows and doors that seal tightly minimise the amount of air that can leak out of them, helping heating and cooling systems to run more efficiently.

In addition to this, Breezway offer a wide variety of glazing options to best suit energy needs. Options include toned glass and timber blades to help control solar heat gain in warmer climates or clear low e glass to improve the insulating properties of the window, if required, in colder climates.

Warranted for seven years (one year for electrical components), Breezway offers a wide selection of customising options for Altair™ Louvre Windows including, blade types (i.e. timber, glass, aluminium and high performance paint finishes available) frame colours, colour matched clips and handles, handle types and positioning, key locks, and security bars.

So for your next project, consider high performance, energy efficient Altair™ Louver Windows by Breezway to bring natural light, air and a sense of space into your building environments to maximise the potential of your sustainable building designs.
