Testing Standards

 

Altair Louvre Windows are tested to meet the mandatory minimum specifications under Australian Standard AS2047 (including reference to AS1288, AS1170 and AS4055) as required by the National Construction Code (Australian Building Code). All windows and external doors for the Australian market whether made from timber, aluminium, uPVC or other materials are required to undergo the following performance tests to verify performance claims.

  • AS4420.2 Deflection Test — positive and negative wind pressures are applied to the face of the window to test the maximum deflection under wind load.
  • AS4420.3 Operating Force Test — to verify that an opening sash is capable of opening and closing without undue effort.
  • AS4420.4 Air Infiltration Test — the air leakage of a window is tested to ensure energy and acoustic efficiency.
  • AS4420.5 Water Penetration Resistance Test — this test is designed to ensure no water leaks through the window into the building.
  • AS4420.6 Ultimate Strength Test — negative and positive wind pressures are applied to the window to at least 1.5 times the design wind pressure to ensure it does not fail in unusual wind conditions.

Product Certification – Structural & Water Performance

 

The Australian Standard for windows AS2047 was called up into the Building Code of Australia on the 30th June 1999. As a result all window manufacturers must now label their windows with:

  • their identification mark; and
  • the product’s window rating and water penetration resistance

Altair Product Performance Warranty

 

Breezway has created the following Product Performance Warranties. The tables for Non-Cyclonic and Cyclonic regions define the window design and construction constraints that must be followed to ensure compliance with AS2047-2014. By adjusting the window height, width, blade type, number of bays and frame type a designer will typically be able to specify a window to suit their design, even in extreme conditions.

3. Using the Stronghold System for 152mm blade lengths greater than 900mm
The Stronghold System is an optional feature of the Altair Louvre Window which mechanically fixes the blades into the clips. These mechanical fixings enable bay widths of up to 1200mm to be achieved in some regions. In other regions, the ULS and Water Pass requirements of AS2047-2014 prevent these wider bay widths from being warranted. Easyscreen, Innoscreen or Altair Component System High Profile Sills and standard heights are required.

4. Water Pass Ratings greater than 300Pa
A High Profile Sill is required to achieve Water Pass ratings greater than 300Pa.

  • High Profile Sills are available in the Breezway Easyscreen and Innoscreen Window Systems and in the Altair Component System.
  • High Profile Sills are not available in the Breezway SL2 Window System.
  • Altair 102mm Louvres are not suitable for use with High Profile Sills as they are prevented from opening beyond 28°.

Water Pass ratings greater than 300Pa are only achievable using Altair Gallery sets without screw holes.

  • Altair Gallery sets snap into Breezway Window Systems, so do not require screw holes.
  • Altair Backing Strips allow Altair Component Systems to be installed without screw holes.

Product Performance Warranty – Commercial

For housing outside the limitations of AS4055 and residential or commercial building classes, please consult Breezway with your specific project requirements so we can correctly apply the relevant performance warranty constraints.

Product Performance Warranty – Housing

The following table outlines the maximum variations that Breezway will warrant per Cyclonic Wind Classification and Water Penetration as per AS2047-1999 “Windows in Buildings”. Exceeding these constraints will void this Warranty. The limitations have been generated through NATA test results and over 60 years of experience manufacturing louvre windows.

Breezway Window Systems supplied fully glazed by Breezway Australia will be labelled as compliant with AS2047-1999 by Breezway Australia. A window manufacturer will be able to label Breezway Window Systems as compliant with AS2047 when the following performance warranty constraints are followed.

This warranty applies only to single bays of the Altair Component System installed to Breezway procedures and using the Altair Weatherstrip System, complete with seals. If the Altair Weatherstrip System, complete with seals, is not used then the manufacturer of the framing system into which the Altair Louvre Galleries are installed assumes responsibility for the warranting of the window system’s performance.

A window manufacturer will be able to label it’s Louvre Window products to comply with AS2047 when installing Altair Louvre Components to Breezway procedures and operating within the following performance warranty constraints. The window system supplier is responsible for warranting the performance of the surround frames and mullions into which Altair Components will be installed and for the fixing of Altair Component System Medium Duty Mullions.

Notes:
SLS
SLS= Serviceability Limit State Wind Pressure / Design Wind Pressure / Permissible Stress. The ability of the window to perform the intended function under normal service conditions avoiding excessive deflection or the appearance of buckling.
ULS
ULS= Ultimate Limit State Wind Pressure / Ultimate Strength Pressure. The maximum load carrying resistance of the window. Subjecting the window to wind pressures in excess of the ULS is likely to result in the window collapsing.

1. Glass blade size and flatness
Glass blades must be 6.0mm ±0.1mm thick and must be straight and flat within 0.3mm/m. Glass blades must be 152.00mm ±0.6mm high or 102.00mm ±0.6mm high.

2. Mullions
Mullion heights are based on a 1:150 deflection ratio (suitable for housing) and the maximum warranted louvre bay widths for each N or C rating.

3. Using the Stronghold System for 152mm blade lengths greater than 900mm
The Stronghold System is an optional feature of the Altair Louvre Window which mechanically fixes the blades into the clips. These mechanical fixings enable bay widths of up to 1200mm to be achieved in some regions. In other regions, the ULS and Water Pass requirements of AS2047-1999 prevent these wider bay widths from being warranted. Easyscreen or Innoscreen High Profile Sills and standard heights are required.

4. Water Pass Ratings greater than 300Pa
A High Profile Sill is required to achieve Water Pass ratings greater than 300Pa.

  • High Profile Sills are available in the Breezway Easyscreen and Innoscreen Window Systems and in the Altair Component System.
  • High Profile Sills are not available in the Breezway SL2 Window System.
  • Altair 102mm Louvres are not suitable for use with High Profile Sills as they are prevented from opening beyond 28°.

Water Pass ratings greater than 300Pa are only achievable using Altair Gallery sets without screw holes.

  • Altair Gallery sets snap into Breezway Window Systems, so do not require screw holes.
  • Altair Backing Strips allow Altair Component Systems to be installed without screw holes.
