They don’t make louvres like they use to

Louvre Windows have been around for a very long time. You may remember them as old rusty, leaky louvres. But today, Breezway offers a new generation louvre window that has been developed by the latest technology to guarantee you a quality product that will last a lifetime!

85 Years

Breezway History

Breezway can trace our history of manufacturing louvre windows back to the early 1930’s where the first louvre patent was filed by A E Appleton & Sons. This louvre window was very popular and the company grew rapidly. The company changed names multiple times through mergers and sales, and by the mid-1960’s our Naco Louvres were being exported to over 65 countries. Over the years the company has manufactured a number of other products, but aluminium louvre windows have always been a key part of the business. Today, Breezway is owned by JELD-WEN Australia Pty Limited.

Breezway Today

Breezway is at the forefront of louvre window technology and design. There is a constant stream of product improvements flowing from our Brisbane-based R&D Centre. Our facilities include 3D modelling, on-site tooling and manufacturing. There is an on-site NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) approved window testing laboratory. As a result, the team has developed many louvre window innovations which now hold international patents.

Imagine a home or office free from air conditioning

Natural ventilation is important in any home or working environment. It helps keep the air we breathe clean and fresh while maintaining a connection with our outdoor environment. It also helps reduce our household energy bills too!

What’s the best window solution for you? Breezway Louvres open wide to offer maximum ventilation to naturally cool your living or working space. This is compared to any other window type. Breezes can be captured no matter which direction the wind is blowing, and seal tight to offer protection from the elements, even in cyclonic conditions.
