Altair Louvre Window

Checklist & Specification

A full checklist and specification is provided below to assist you when designing with Altair® Louvre Windows.

Breezway is proud to be a NATSPEC Product Partner
The NATSPEC Product Partner program places manufacturer information within the NATSPEC system to create branded worksections which provide subscribers with an alternative to generic worksections available online.

The main advantages of using the NATSPEC Breezway branded worksection are:

  • Minimal customising required as the Template has been approximately 90% pre-edited in conjunction with Breezway.
  • Current product information is readily available and accessible via hyperlinks between the Template and Breezway’s website reducing research time and facilitating early decision making.
  • The possibility of product substitution by the contractor may be reduced as the unique performance characteristics of the Breezway product are clearly specified.
  • Specifiers can rely on NATSPEC industry knowledge and regular updates of the relevant standards and building codes.

NATSPEC Background

NATSPEC is a national not-for-profit organisation, owned by the design, build, construct and property industry through professional associations and government property groups. Their objective is to improve the construction quality and productivity of the built environment through leadership of information.

Breezway Branded Worksection

The Breezway Branded Worksection may be downloaded and used in project specifications. It is the responsibility of the user to make sure it is completed appropriately for the project. The user should also review its applicability for local conditions and regulations.

If you would like a Breezway Representative to walk you through the NATSPEC branded worksection and how it may be used for your next project, please contact our Design Assist Team on 1800 777 758 or email designassist@breezway.com.au to book your appointment today.
