Window Fall Prevention and Barriers
Using Altair Louvres to Meet Fall Prevention Through Openable Window Requirements
Restricted Window Openings
Breezway has a number of solutions that can be applied to the Altair Louvre to meet these Building Code clauses. Importantly, the Fall Prevention solutions also continue to provide a good level of ventilation so the room remains comfortable and the need for air conditioning is greatly reduced.
For more information on the Stronghold System please visit the Stronghold Page.
- A 152mm Altair Louvre Window with the Stronghold System, toughened glass or aluminium blades a maximum of 900mm long and all blade openings restricted to 100mm will comply with Clauses 18.104.22.168(b)(i)(A) and D2.24(b)(i)(A).

Breezway Altair Louvre products are not a balustrade system. If Altair Louvres are used in a situation that requires a balustrade, then a system that complies with the relevant Building Codes should be installed in addition to the Altair Louvres.
