Colour Options

Breezway offers an extensive range of colours and finishes, many with optional colour matched clips and handles. Selecting the right anodising or powder for the atmospheric conditions of your building, along with correct maintenance, will be critical to the ongoing appearance of the finish.

To learn more about how to care for your aluminium finishes, please visit the Care & Maintenance page.

NOTES

These colours are indicative only and may not exactly reflect their true colour due to differences in screen calibration. Some colour variation between aluminium and plastic can occur. Industry accepted colour variation can also occur during the aluminium anodising process.

Some colour match options may incur a surcharge.

Size Options

Altair Louvre Windows are custom manufactured to order, meaning there is a wide flexibility in sizes available. Please speak to your local window manufacturer for advice on your specific circumstances.

Heights
Standard heights are based off the chosen blade height of 102mm and 152mm. *Recommended Option*
Off Standard heights are available for single glazed Altair Louvres but will add cost to your window and result in a fixed louvre blade to act as a filler piece. The type of window frame chosen will affect the standard heights. See more in the TAB section below.

Widths
There are no standard louvre blade or louvre bay widths for single glazed Altair Louvres. However most bay widths are between 600mm to 900mm wide, or up to 1200mm if using the Stronghold System.

Breezway louvres fixed blade
The tabs provide a range of technical information relating to louvre sizes.
For further details view the Breezway Design Manual.

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 Product Performance Warranty in the Breezway Design Manual for technical information.Standard Heights are measured from the lowest visible metal to the uppermost visible metal of the frame and excludes fins.

Off-Standard Heights are available but this will add cost and result in a fixed louvre blade to act as a filler piece. i.e. Greater than 5mm or less than a Standard Height. Off-Standard heights within 5mm of a Standard Height will not have a fixed top blade.

Notes for Powerlouvre System Standard Heights:
152mm Easyscreen Window System: Std height + 41mm is unavailable.
102mm Easyscreen Window System: Std heights only.

Notes for Stronghold System:
