Keylocks, Screens and Security Barriers
Altair® Louvres offer a wide variety of barrier options to choose from
The Altair Louvre Keylock is available in one finish and can be fitted to all types of Altair Louvres, except the Powerlouvre. The Keylock can fitted on the left or right of each louvre bay and is placed to the opposite side of the handle. The same key can be used to open or lock multiple Breezway keylocks on the louvre window or other Breezway louvre windows throughout the home. Please note that the Keylock operates when the louvres are closed. Security screens or bars are required to protect an open louvre.
Strong & Durable
Zinc cast with a brushed finish, chrome plated metal construction to deliver strength and durability. Folding key is copper and nickel plated with the key holder made from ABS Plastic.

Insect and Security
There are many framing systems today that will allow a security screen to be placed to the outside of your Altair Louvres. We will often sell our Altair Louvre mechanisms to window manufacturers who will use their own framing system. Breezway does not manufacture screens, but there are many quality options available.
Improved Energy Performance
Screens to the outside of louvre blades can also aid in significant improvements to the insulation and shading properties of the window. For more information see our Energy Efficiency page.
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 in a number of different Louvre Window framing systems. Security bars are not available with 102mm as they do not open sufficiently. A stainless steel mesh screen can be used as an alternative with 102mm Altair Louvres.
Altair Louvre Windows can have optional 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.
There are systems available to suit various frame types. Please visit the Compare Frames page to understand the range available.
