Performance

Altair® Louvers are designed to meet and exceed AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/1.S.2/A440-05 and A440-08.

Product Performance Warranty

 

The following table outlines the maximum variations that Breezway® North America will warrant per Design Pressure (DP). Exceeding these constraints will void this Warranty. The limitations have been generated through AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturer’s Association) test results. The design constraints below apply to Altair Strip Hardware within the ios Window System or the Makani Window System.

For commercial applications, please consult Breezway with your specific project requirements, so we can correctly apply the relevant performance warranty constraints.
