Putting strength, safety into louver windows

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: InteriorWindows

As your old jalousie windows leak and fail, you start thinking about window replacement. Do you use an awning window that will block 50 percent or more ventilation, while creating safety hazards sticking out over walkways close to your house?

Do you choose a sliding window that blocks your air flow by 50 percent, plus it cannot be left open in the rain? You are now challenged with tough choices, because changing your jalousies means you will lose the benefits that you have grown accustomed to, like full ventilation, safer walkways, the ability to leave them open in gentle rains and the ability to clean them from inside the home.

Well, there is great news for you. High performance Breezway louvers have all the full ventilation benefits of a jalousie in the open position, taking advantage of passive cooling designs, while having none of the drawbacks of a jalousie window when it’s closed.

Breezway louvers seal tight, keeping out wind, water and noise, and also offer security screen and hurricane protection options. Recently, Breezway also added the Stronghold clip system that secures the glass blade internally, so it cannot fall out, making it ideal for high elevation windows and increased security at ground levels.

The Stronghold system represents the latest in innovative and safe window technology introduced to Hawaii in years. The frames are made from non-corrosive material that is also UV stabilized to protect from the harsh UV rays.

Stronghold offers various glass types, including low e glass, which meets the newly adopted energy codes that other jalousie and louver windows do not. The glass in the Stronghold is also locally tempered, making safety glass an affordable reality and increasing the safety in your home over 100 percent, with glass that is five times stronger than what you buy off the shelf at the local hardware store. The Stonghold increases safety by incorporating a security retaining pin system that keeps the blades from falling out, and is only removable from the interior of the home.

Breezway will be at the BIA Remodel It Right Remodel It Green Expo on Aug. 8-10 at the Neal Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall. For more information, visit the company at booth 827.
