ALTAIR® POWERLOUVRE® WINDOWS
For Remote Control and Automated systems, the Altair® Powerlouvre® Window has been designed to electronically manage cross ventilation and natural airflow.
Energy efficient Altair Powerlouvre Windows by Breezway are a sleek, elegant solution to window automation. Available in heights up to 2.7 metres, the automated award winning Altair Powerlouvre Window can be incorporated into a range of design applications such as high out-of-reach locations or as floor-to-ceiling feature windows.
When fully open, the Powerlouvre allows up to 90% natural ventilation through the entire window opening which helps keep the building at a comfortable temperature at any time of day without the need for artificial cooling systems.
Automation - Making window automation easy!
The low voltage Altair Powerlouvre Window has been designed to electronically manage cross ventilation and natural airflow into the home.
Displaying superior aesthetics with no visual indication of any motors or automated device, the Powerlouvre Window is a popular and convenient window option for contemporary residential or commercial building designs.
Window Frames - Complete aluminium window system or in component form
Altair Powerlouvre Windows are available in the aluminium Breezway Easyscreen Window System. Delivered to site fully assembled, the Powerlouvre Window removes the complexity of sourcing special trades to install motors or program the system.
The Powerlouvre Window can also be made available in Component Form to approved Window Fabricators for installation into flat commercial frames or timber frames
Opening Configurations - How to configure your Powerlouvres
Powerlouvre Windows that are 2-9 blades high contain one motor per bay and are wired such that the entire window opens and closes simultaneously. Powerlouvre Windows that are 10-18 blades high contain two motors per bay; one motor drives the blades in the top bank of the window and the other motor drives the blades in the bottom bank of louvres. Powerlouvre Windows with 10-18 blades are wired such that the bays of louvres in the top bank open and close simultaneously and the louvres in the bottom bank open and close simultaneously.
Testing - The Powerlouvre has undergone extensive testing
The Altair Powerlouvre Window can be controlled by a simple wall switch, the Breezway Remote Control System or can be integrated into a sophisticated building automation system.
The device allows blades to be stopped into various positions throughout the duration of the open/close cycle.
Battery Backup - For when the power goes out
Please keep in mind that the Powerlouvre Window has no integrated battery backup. If the power supply fails, the window cannot be operated. Therefore, if battery backup is required in areas with unreliable power supply, systems are readily available and can be integrated by qualified suppliers.
BREEZWAY EASYSCREEN™ WINDOW SYSTEM – FOR EXTERNAL SCREENING
The Breezway Easyscreen Surround Frame is a great aluminium framing option for Altair Louvres in your home, resort, government building, social housing, school or any other project where fresh air and energy efficient control of the building environment is important.
It has been specifically designed for use with Altair Louvres which ensures superior wind and water penetration performance and improved aesthetics.
Manufactured exclusively from corrosion resistant materials, it requires no ongoing maintenance other than regular cleaning, making it an ideal option for coastal and tropical environments and drastically reducing lifetime maintenance costs.
BREEZWAY INNOSCREEN® WINDOW SYSTEM – FOR INTERNAL SCREENING
The Innoscreen Window System now offers an inside screening solution in a hassle-free framing system that complies with AS2047 and can be delivered fully assembled, ready for installation.
It is the ideal framing option for those who want to screen their home but keep that ‘louvre look’ and optimise the external aesthetics of the building.
The Innoscreen Window System is also safer and saves time, as windows above the ground floor are easily screened from inside the building. Makes for safe and simple screen cleaning too!
BREEZWAY SL2® WINDOW SYSTEM – FOR NARROW FITTINGS
Featuring modern architectural lines, the SL2 Altair Louvre Window System has been developed to suit narrow frame applications and installation into concrete block construction when screening is not required.
The SL2 Window System can effectively bring natural light and ventilation into the building to reduce the need for power-hungry artificial cooling systems.
