Altair in other Frames 3D Models
Online viewing of 3D models is a relatively new technology. Viewing 3D models requires a fast internet connection and reasonably high speed computer processor. Viewing may not be possible on some older computers. We recommend Google Chrome for the best viewing results.
Altair in Other Frames Standard Heights
While Altair Louvre Windows can be manufactured in any size specified, the wind and water rating for the building project will affect the maximum allowable window height and bay width. Please refer to the Altair Product Performance Warranty for technical information.
For Altair Louvre Gallery standard heights please see the size chart on the right. Off Standard heights are available but this will add cost and result in a fixed louvre blade to act as a filler piece.
- Weatherstrip, complete with seal, must be used to gain manufacturer’s performance warranty.
- Altair Weatherstrip does not require notching to accomodate the louvre gallery.
- Weatherstrips to head and sill add 10mm to overall gallery height.
- Off Standard Height Galleries that are within 5mm of a Standard Height Gallery will not have a top fixed blade and will therefore require Standard Height Weatherstrip sets.
- Off Standard Height Galleries that are more than 5mm greater than or less than a Standard Height Gallery will have a top fixed blade and will therefore require Off Standard Height Weatherstrip sets.
