Louvre windows, also known as jalousie windows, are an increasingly popular option for people in warm climates, which pretty much covers all of Australia. Why are louvre windows so popular in the Perth area? Here are some reasons why.
What are Louvre Windows?
Windows are built with a timber frame glass slats. The slots are set into the frame and appear similar to venetian blinds. They open out using a crank or handle. Louvre windows can be installed as standard windows but can also be installed within a door frame.
Advantages of Louvre Windows
Louvre windows are most often used for their efficient ventilation characteristics. They can let air flow in and out of your home but keep rain out. This allows you to keep them open and ventilate your home even when it is raining outside. Louvre windows also tend to allow light in while blocking direct sunlight due to their design.
High quality, custom jalousie windows can be used to beautify any room in your home. They are such effective ventilators that you can often save money on air conditioning by leaving them open. Due to the fact that our custom louvre windows are made of high quality, exterior grade timber and heavy-duty glass specially made for us right here in WA, they have superior insulation characteristics when they are closed. No air leaks in or out; this makes your heating and cooling more efficient.
Disadvantages of Louvre Windows
The only real disadvantage of louvre or jalousie windows is that they can often be pried open easily. However, our high-quality, heavy-duty materials are more difficult to pry open than standard grade louvre windows.
