Breezway Altair Louvre Windows have proven to be the best window type on the market for maximising ventilation, as seen on the 2018 series of the block. With blades that open horizontally Breezway Louvres allow ventilation through the entire window area. Natural ventilation can reduce energy costs, lower maintenance and improve the overall comfort and health of occupants.
Awning Windows can also offer natural ventilation however, depending on what you are looking for you may find that you desire more opening space. As awnings are restricted to only opening to a minimal degree depending on different wind directions, natural ventilation may be hindered.

When considering an Awning Window, the speed and ease of use may not be suited for busy users. Opening an Awning can take some time as most have winders. Awnings can also be tricky to clean due to restrictions in accessing the outer glass, which can be a safety hazard when looking at multi-level buildings.

When seeking protection from the elements Awning Windows generally offer the tightest sealing of all openable windows, due to the sash (the opening part of the window) being pulled tightly against the frame when closed.
However, Breezway is an industry leader with extensive wind and water testing standards. Even when faced with cyclonic conditions Breezway Louvre Windows live up to their exceptional reputation. You can read some real life cyclonic experiences with our louvres on our Testimonial page.
Breezway also offers the Stronghold System which provides a very high level of strength and safety. This is especially important when fall prevention is required. The multiple openings of a louvre window give the best ventilation even when openings are restricted. This is in comparison to Awning Windows that offer very limited ventilation when openings are restricted to comply with fall prevention.
Breezway also offers security bars, screens and keylocks as added security features if desired by homeowners.
