Breezway Altair louvre windows have been installed into the facade of a multi-level apartment building in Bankstown, Sydney to eliminate the need for balustrading.

Designed by Tony Owens & Partners, the multi-storeyed Bankstown apartment project is located on Chapel Road and incorporates Altair louvre windows with the Stronghold System to facilitate ventilation while ensuring safety.

Ideal for use more than four metres above ground level, the Stronghold System has been specifically designed to mechanically retain blades so that ventilation is maximised while providing added safety to the entire window opening.

Altair louvres with the Stronghold System have been strategically placed on the corner of the building as a key visual feature. Altair louvres not only provide the residents protection from the elements but are also restricted to comply with the new 2013 BCA Fall Prevention requirements.

The architects at Tony Owens & Partners recommended Breezway Altair louvre windows to the developer for multiple reasons including their visually appealing aesthetics, the product’s full certification and compliance with Australian Standards, and Breezway’s strong reputation in the window industry.
