Easyscreen Window System 3D Models

 

Online viewing of 3D models is a relatively new technology. Please note the models shown below are rendered animations only. For more technical detail please view the CAD and BIM model section below. Viewing 3D models requires a fast internet connection and reasonably high speed computer processor. Viewing may not be possible on some older computers. We recommend Google Chrome for the best viewing results.

NOTE: Whenever you see this symbol logo-mark-25x25 click on an illustration to view a 3D interactive version. Rotate the model by using your left mouse button or pan the model by using your right mouse button. Use your mouse wheel to zoom. Please note this is a rendered model only.

Easyscreen Sub Framing

 

For projects where sub framing is the preferred installation method, Sub Framing is available for the Easyscreen Window System.

For Window heights ≤ 791mm:
Combined Window and Sub Framing height = Window height + approximately* 45mm

For Window heights ≥ 792mm:
Combined Window and Sub Framing height = Window height + approximately* 30mm

Combined Window and Jamb Angles width = Window Width + approximately* 24mm *To be confirmed by installer.

Easyscreen Security Bar System

 

Security bars are an effective barrier when the louvre is open, that unlike screens do not reduce any air flow.

Breezway has security bars available to fit 152mm (6”) blade heights with 16mm diameter solid aluminium bars fixed to the window frame to the outside of the blades and positioned to allow the window to open fully.

Altair Security Bars will have a moderate effect on views with 16mm solid bars and 124mm vertical spacings between bars.

Easyscreen Standard Heights

 

While Altair Louvre Windows can be manufactured in any size specified, the wind and water rating for the building project will affect the maximum allowable window height and bay width. Please refer to the Altair Product Performance Warranty for technical information.

For standard heights in the Breezway Easyscreen Frame please see the size chart on the right. Off Standard heights are available but this will add cost and result in a fixed louvre blade to act as a filler piece. The sizes for Altair Powerlouvres in an Easyscreen Frame are also highlighted on the right.

Please note:

  • Standard Heights are measured from the lowest visible metal to the uppermost visible metal of the frame and excludes fins.
  • Off Standard Heights that are more than 5mm greater than or less than a Standard Height will have a top fixed blade to achieve the specified height. Off Standard heights that are within 5mm of a Standard Height will not have a fixed top blade.
  • Some off-standard heights are unavailable when using the 102mm Altair Louvre Galleries with the Stronghold System. For the Easyscreen System these include: Standard Height + 24mm to Standard Frame Height + 35mm.
  • Non-standard frame heights ≤42mm greater than a standard frame height are not available for 152mm Powerlouvre in the Easyscreen Frame.
  • Non-standard frame heights ≤44mm greater than a standard frame height are not available for 102mm Powerlouvre in the Easyscreen Frame.
  • Refer to the product performance warranty on possible height restrictions for different blade types.
  • Standard sizes will save money and improve lead times.

Easyscreen Widths

 

There are no standard Altair Louvre widths. The desired window width can be achieved through multiple louvre bays (maximum bay width is 4000mm). The bay width may be affected by Building code rules. Please discuss with your Breezway Dealer and builder.

Altair Powerlouvre Windows

  • Maximum width = 4000mm (frames over these dimensions will need to be coupled on site or at a window fabricator’s factory)
  • Minimum bay width for 2-9 blade high windows = 400mm
  • Minimum bay width for 10-18 blade high windows = 500mm
  • Up to 6 galleries (bays) can be included in a single surround frame
  • Combination louvre and fixed light bays are available

Altair® Louvre REVIT Models

REVIT models of selected Easyscreen Window Systems are now available through the Design Content website or can be downloaded below. REVIT models are generated and maintained by Design Content.

Please Note: While sizing logic has been built into the models, Breezway’s Product Performance Warranty should be consulted to determine maximum blade lengths and maximum window heights for each project’s wind and water ratings.

While the REVIT models do not show fixed blades when off-standard heights are specified, windows at off-standard heights will be supplied with fixed blades.
