Security and Stonghold

Security for your Louvre Windows

Brushed Chrome Keylock

Keylocks come standard on Altair® Louvres in Easyscreen® (131mm) or SL2® (52mm) frame.  The louvre component system may be ordered with or without keylocks.  Framed louvres can be ordered without keylocks.

The keylock is located on the opposite side to the handle.  When the louvres are fully closed and the keylock is engaged, it increases the window’s locking pressure, further improving the air and water tightness.

Keylocks come in brushed chrome finish (pictured).

Keylock for Louvre

We can attempt to match older Breezway Keylocks that were available in black, white (pictured) and silver grey. However they are subject to availability as they are discontinued.

Security screens for louvre windows

INVISI-GARD screens can be fitted to the Easyscreen (131mm) frame for a security option that allows you to feel secure to leave your windows open but still allows uninterupted views to the outside.

Security Bars for Louvres

Security Bars are available to fit into the Easyscreen (131mm) frame with 152mm blades.

Security bars do not impede the operation of the louvre window but provide and impenetrable barrier for thieves.

The Stonghold® System

Altair® Louvres with the Stronghold System have been designed to mechanically hold the blades in place.  It improves blade retention and minimises the risk of the blades being dislodged.  It is excellent to use in windows above 4m for safety.

To keep the blades in position, a pin is installed through the clip and glass.  The insertion point is on the inside of the building making it almost impossible to remove it, or the blade from the outside.

The blades must be aluminium or toughened with the Stronghold System.
