Louvre Blade Options

With Altair® Louvre Windows you can choose blades that best suit the windows function, such as maximising views, letting in/reducing sunlight, reducing glare, gaining privacy or creating your own design style.

For technical details please visit the Technical page.

Blade Dimensions

Blade height
Altair Louvre Windows are available with two blade heights: 102mm (4”) and 152mm (6”).

Blade length
The length of the louvre blade is typically based on the bay width required for the window application and any length restrictions to comply with Building Codes. For more information see FAQ “How wide can my louvres be?”.

Blade thickness
The Altair Louvre design has been optimised for 6mm thick glass and 14mm thick timber blades. The use of other thicknesses will compromise the performance of the product and are not warranted by Breezway.

Blades for Stronghold
Blades that are mechanically retained by the Stronghold System are available for use with 6mm thick, 152mm or 102mm drilled glass or aluminium blades. For more information, visit the Stronghold System page.

Blade sizes for Altair Louvres
Blade heights of 102mm (4”) and 152mm (6”) available.

Benefits Summary

Key consideration

Blade type

Comments

Increased glass safetyToughened Glass
Toughened glass is around 5 times stronger than un-toughened glass. Not only is it harder to break, but if it does break, it breaks into small fragments with square edges instead of razor-sharp shards of glass. Building codes will require toughened glass in certain situations in the building. Toughening all glass blades is an extra precaution that is available.
Timber and AluminiumTimber and aluminium obviously do not shatter at all.
Clear views and maximum daylightClear GlassClear glass will maximise these considerations. Tinted glass can also be very effective with only slight reductions in daylight.
Increased insulationClear low e Glass and Timber
Clear glass with a low emissivity coating and timber have insulating properties to reduce the heat transfer through the blade.
Protection from heat gain due to direct sunlightGlass – tinted grey or green
Reduces the Solar Heat Gain when protection from direct sunlight is wanted. This will typically be a key consideration on western elevations (as windows facing the west are exposed to hot afternoon sun).
Timber and AluminiumTimber and aluminium are solid blades and very effective in this role.
Heat gain from direct sunlight is desirableClear GlassIn colder seasons heat gain from sunlight is a very desirable benefit. North facing windows will typically be clear glass to get this free heating benefit from nature.
PrivacyGlass – satinlite or satina
These glasses are obscure to provide privacy while also letting in daylight while closed.
Aluminium and TimberAluminium and timber are solid blades that will provide complete privacy while closed, but need to be open to provide daylight.
Colour, visual impactAluminiumAluminium blades can be anodised or powder coated to a wide array of colours.
Timber warmth or lookTimber
Our Western Red Cedar blades provide the timber “look” and the insulated benefits of timber.
Aluminium – Decowood Aluminium blades can be finished with Decowood timber look powdercoat. This provides the appearance of timber, with the low maintenance of aluminium.

Restricted Blade Openings

Due to compliance laws you may need to restrict your louvre openings to meet state or local government regulations. There are a number of reasons why you may need restricted openings including situations when using louvres for fall prevention, louvres adjacent to swimming pools etc. To find out more please visit our Compliance page or download our design manual from the Downloads page.

Fixed Louvres

For technical details please visit the Technical page.

  • Not available with 102mm clip.
  • As outlined in Clause F1.13(c)(iii) of the NCC, fixed louvres are exempt from compliance with AS2047.
  • Fixed louvres are only available in standard heights.
  • Louvres blades are fixed at a 45 degree angle.

Applications for Fixed Vent Louvres

Use fixed vent louvres where permanent ventilation, light, privacy and a degree of weatherproofing is required. Some typical applications include:

  • Vented roofs
  • Laundries (industrial, domestic)
  • Bathrooms
  • Public Amenities
  • Housing for air conditioning units
  • Screening walkways

Altair® Louvre Window Sizes

Altair Louvre Windows are custom manufactured to order, meaning there is a wide flexibility in sizes available. There are no standard blade widths, most louvres bays are between 600mm and 900mm but can extend up to 1200mm if using the Stronghold System. For technical details please visit the Technical page.

Heights

  • Standard heights are based off the chosen blade height of 102mm and 152mm. *Recommended Option*
  • Off Standard heights are available but will add cost to your window and result in a fixed louvre blade to act as a filler piece.
  • The type of window frame chosen will affect the standard heights.

Widths

  • There are no standard louvre blade or louvre bay widths.
  • When determining the bay widths possible a rule of thumb is the higher the wind and water performance required, the shorter the blade should be (i.e. cyclonic regions).
  • Most blade lengths are between 600mm to 900mm wide, or up to 1200mm if using the Stronghold System.
  • Multiple louvre bays can often achieve the desired frame width.
  • Breezway’s framing systems can offer a maximum of 4 metres wide.
Please note: For Powerlouvre Windows, the minimum bay widths are:
  • 2-9 blade high Powerlouvres = 400mm
  • 10-18 blade high Powerlouvres = 500mm
Please speak to your local window manufacturer for advice on your specific circumstances.

Colours & Finish Selection

Breezway offers an extensive range of colours and finishes, many with optional colour matched handles and clips. For technical details please visit the Technical page.

Selecting the Right Aluminium Finish

Altair Louvre windows are available in three different surface finishes: 25 micron anodised, standard powder coating and high performance powder coating under warranty from Dulux and Akzo Nobel.

Over time, weathering of powder coated surfaces should be expected, resulting in a gradual change in appearance. Selecting the right powder for the atmospheric conditions of the site and correct maintenance will be critical to the ongoing appearance of the finish.

The application of high durability powder will reduce this deterioration and is essential for severe industrial, coastal or tropical environments.

Note: Industry accepted colour variation can occur during the aluminium anodising process.
