Breezway’s Secondary Glazed Dualair Louvre Component System
Our award winning Dualair Component System (awarded ‘Most Innovative Window System’ by the Australian Glass & Window Association in 2018) was featured in a Project Profile for the first time – the Thuringowa RSL Club up in Townsville. The architect, Ken Tippett specified the Dualair System to meet acoustic ratings required to keep out air conditioning noise and tight sealing for the cyclone area. On pleasant days, the louvres are automatically opened via the Powerlouvre Apptivate Control Unit to allow fresh breezes to flow throughout the club to keep patrons in the dining area cool. Check out the project video below.
NATSPEC Branded Work Section
2019 saw Breezway join forces once again with NATSPEC and became an official Product Partner with a branded worksection created for the specification of Breezway Louvre Windows into education projects around the country. Knowing the learning and health benefits that natural ventilation brings to students, we are always very excited to work on education projects. To see a collection of Education Projects using Breezway Louvres, please visit the Education page or download the Breezway Branded Worksection here for your next project.
Our Marketing Team are always focused on ensuring our specifiers are equipped with the essential information they require when working on projects with Breezway Louvre Windows. You may have noticed the following changes to our website:
- A new Home Page designed to improve user navigation to important information through a series of quick links.
- New categories at the top of the project profile page so users can easily sort through topics of interest more efficiently.
- Updated search function so only page titles appear in a neat and easier-to-read format when undertaking a search.
- Improved speed and performance of our website overall so you always have a positive experience when you visit our site.
Over the years, Breezway has produced a wide range of videos promoting various products and the many benefits of our windows. At the beginning of 2019, the most popular video was the ‘Ventilation Rates and Energy Efficiency of Various Window Types’ video with around 4,000 views per month on average.
In early May, the YouTube algorithm began featuring this video on the YouTube homepages of more users resulting in the views of the video skyrocketing to a total of 174,800 views during the month of May. This is the first time that the total views of one of our videos has passed a total of 100,000 views. Check out our Breezway YouTube channel today.
Award Winning Projects
We have published a large collection of project profiles this year from various locations around Australia, with two of them being award winning projects. We would like to thank all the specifiers who have sent us their projects to feature on our website and in social media. We are very grateful for this opportunity to provide other specifiers and end users a collection of inspirational photography from many different residential and commercial designs.
Further to this, we would also like to acknowledge all the beautiful, stunning projects we have been tagged in on Instagram and Facebook. We thank all our followers for their very positive feedback regarding the design and performance of our product.
It is our priority to continue providing high quality products and services to specifiers like you, and the best way for us to improve is through customer feedback. If you would like to leave us a rating on Product Review, our link is https://www.productreview.com.au/listings/breezway
