60 years experience manufacturing louvre windows
Judging the performance of a louvre window can be done in two ways, firstly by its performance in the field and secondly by its performance in a laboratory testing environment.
In field performance
The Altair Louvre design now has some ten years field experience in Australia and across the world and is widely recognised as a proven performer to Australian and International Standards.
Altair Louvres & Cyclone Yasi
On 2nd February 2011 many of our customers were hit by Australia’s largest Cyclone, Category 5 Cyclone Yasi with wind speeds up to 290kmh (180mph). You can learn more about Cyclone Yasi and read how our customer’s Altair Louvres performed.
Over 150 tests have been completed on Breezway louvre products and many more trials during Product Development. These are conducted in NATA certified laboratories and include a full range of sizes. Tests have been successfully completed up to ultimate wind pressure at 8000Pa (equivalent to a 415km/h wind) and water pass tests at 450Pa.
