Trusted by Architects and Designers
Breezway extensively tests Altair Louver Windows for compliance with International Standards, and they have proven their performance in real-world hurricane conditions. We make each window to order, which allows for the widest choice of customizing options and results in a window that fits perfectly into custom-designed homes, schools, and apartment buildings.
Can I customize my louver windows?
With careful thought your new or replacement louvers can be much more than just a window. Consideration of control methods, blade selection and frame type can impact in real benefits such as ease of use, shading, privacy, energy efficiency, comfort, creating views, security, screening etc. Have a look at our Design and Products pages to help you decide. Some time spent now will reward you once the windows are installed.

How wide can my louvers be?
Typically people are asking how wide a louver bay can be i.e. the length of the blades. An indicative answer is 23-5/8″ to 35-7/16″. When replacing jalousies or installing new windows to benefit from full ventilation, a rule of thumb is the higher the wind and water performance required, the shorter the blade should be. In hurricane regions the bay widths may be a maximum of 23-5/8″ or in other geographic areas with lower wind loads they may extend up to 35-7/16″. The window frame can then be designed with multiple bays to achieve the desired frame width. With Breezway’s framing systems this can be up to 157-15/32″ wide. Your window manufacturer will advise you based on your specific circumstances.
There are no standard widths. However, there are standard heights and it is beneficial to stay within these standard heights. The actual standard height will vary depending on your chosen louver size and framing system. If you use a standard height all louver blades will operate. If you have an off standard height a small piece of fixed louver blade will be placed at the head of the window to make up the difference between standard heights. It is worth discussing with your window manufacturer and builder to ensure you have standard height louver windows installed.
What about cleaning louvers?
Like all marine grade windows, jalousies will need regular cleaning. The smooth outer surface of the Altair Louver clips and the quality polished edges of the glass blades do make cleaning easier. Another big plus for cleaning our louver windows is that you can clean the inside and the outside surfaces from the inside of the building. This can be a huge plus for upper story windows.
