Breezway IGLU® System
Double Glazed Louvre
The revolutionary Altair® IGLU® Double Glazed Louvre System is designed to allow maximum ventilation through the window opening while providing high thermal performance for residential or commercial designs.
Offers increased energy efficiency and excellent thermal ratings making it well suited to extreme climates.
Incorporates the Stronghold® System to ensure compliance with Fall Prevention requirements.
Wide range of customising options including automated operation, handle types, colour options and security.
*90% ventilation as per the NCC Definition of a ventilation opening. Using a more conservative and realistic definition of the ventilation opening, the thicker IGLU blades will reduce the ventilation opening to approximately 80% of the total window area.
Design for Comfort
Natural ventilation is important in any home or working environment. It helps keep the air we breathe clean and fresh whilst maintaining a connection with our outdoor environment. The unique design of the Altair IGLU Double Glazed Louvre opens twice as wide as other window types to offer maximum ventilation to naturally cool a living or working space without the need for artificial air conditioning systems.
High Energy Performance
The 22mm IGLU Blade, compromising of 5mm Low E glazing, 12mm Argon Gas filled spacer, and another layer of 5mm Low E offers the highest thermal performance of any residential louvre. This double glazed louvre is ideal for use in colder climates, or anywhere where higher levels of thermal insulation are required.
Elegantly Robust Clip
The IGLU Clip utilises the Breezway Stronghold System, granting superior blade retention with all the other benefits the Stronghold System offers. The stepped nature of the IGLU Blade allows for the internal glazing layer to be retained within the clip, while the outer glazing layer finishes flush with the clip. This allows for a completely flat aesthetic to the outside of the window.
Breezway Altair IGLU Blades do not have thermally compromising aluminium framing. Instead, the blades are capped top and bottom by rubber blade-to-blade seals, embedded into the insulated glazing unit (IGU) sealant, with a clean ceramic print running the perimeter of each blade to conceal the IGU spacer, while still drawing the eye through to the view outside.

If blades need to be removed from Altair IGLU Clips or if broken blades need to be replaced, the pins must be removed. The removal process requires tools and will destroy the pins so new pins will be required when blades are re-installed.
