Altair® Louvers can be fitted into a variety of window systems.

Choosing the right framing system can be complex and is best discussed with your window dealer. Breezway has three framing systems that are available through approved window dealers. The ios, Makani and Easyscreen Window Systems all have differing purposes as outlined below. In addition many other window dealers have designed their own framing systems to suit Altair Louver strip hardware.

Frames are available in aluminum, PVC or wood species. Many different configurations of framing are also available to achieve your design objectives. However, inside screens should not be installed within 1 mile of the ocean.
