Safetyline Jalousie supplied over 1,000 louvre windows and louvre window panels for cyclone shelters set up at several public schools and community centres in Queensland.

Part of a $60-million Queensland Government cyclone shelter program, the shelters are designed to provide protection from winds of up to 306km per hour as experienced in a Category 5 cyclone. Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were found to meet the windborne debris impact loading criteria for the cyclone shelters, after undergoing a thorough testing process.

Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were tested for ‘Debris Type B’, using 8mm steel balls as test missiles. The test involved firing five steel balls into the closed louvre windows at various speeds.

Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows exceeded the Australian Standard of 45 metres per second, making them one of the toughest louvre window products on the market.

Manufactured in various heights and widths to suit the installations, Safetyline Jalousie motorised louvre windows and aluminium louvres were supplied in Surfmist powder-coated finish.
