They don't make louvres like they used to - Louvre Windows from Breezway


"Sunlight passing through the windows sends a rainbow of colour onto the walls inside.

Shadows cast throughout the glass create artistic pattens on the floors and walls."

Australian homes rejoice!

Architects have sourced the 'de rigueur' solution for the best light and ventilation in your home.

And no, it's not those daggy, dirty, leaky and unsightly louvres of yesteryear.

It's the stylish Breezway Altair Louvres that provide the most practical and chic window - unlocking a world of cool breezes for those warm summer days and hot summer nights.

As the world-wide market-leader for louvre windows for more than 50 years, Australian-owned and operated Breezway Louvre Windows pride themselves on their research and development to ensure a state of the art product to accommodate our harsh environmental conditions.

Breezway Altair Louvre Windows feature modern architectural lines; allow almost 100% airflow; are perfect for natural cross ventilation and create aesthetic appeal due to the endless options and combinations of colours and finishes available to the homeowner.

Breezway Louvre Window's Australian Sales and Marketing Manager David Brogan said louvres were a great option for home-owners and renovators due to their environmental friendliness, energy efficiency, tight seals and security.

"Breezway Louvres are twice as good as a regular window for so many different reasons.

"Many people under estimate the importance windows have on the home when building or renovating. Windows are totally essential for allowing light and airflow - louvres are a stylish window adding comfort and value to your home. Their streamlined good-looks makes for a great street frontage too!

"Louvres are very easy to clean - busy households can clean the outside windows from the inside - ideal for two storey houses. Water proofing and tight seals allow homeowners to also hose them down without the worry of the window leaking.

"Every order is tailor made and assembled right here in Australia. We have a five day turnaround and all our louvres come with a seven year warranty," he said.

Planit Architecture's Mason Cowle said his firm used Breezway Louvre Windows extensively in residential projects.

"Louvres give the best control of air flow and the greatest percentage of open area of any form of glazing," he said.

"Aesthetically, louvres provide a great connection with the outdoors. Breezway's new colour coded clips have proved very popular with our developer clients and give a more modern and seamless appearance to the clip & frame, particularly when using clear anodised aluminium.

"We have also used cedar blades within the Breezway system internally between ensuites and bedrooms to provide connection between these areas with the option of closing them for privacy," Mr Cowle said.

Breezway Altair Louvres have featured in many high profile projects throughout the country including:

  • The Archicentre's Mosman Green Environmental Renovation Project in Sydney.
  • The Ecovillage at Currumbin in Queensland.
  • The award winning Bunswick project at Terrigal in NSW.
  • The Shambhala project at Port Douglas - Building Designers of Australia 2005 National Award Winner.
