Adjustable Louvre window system designed to complement the Vantage 102mm windows and doors. The jambs, head and sill will clip to all 102mm Vantage products including MAGNUM windows and doors. 131mm Overall frame is wide enough to allow the flyscreen to be fitted within the frame line as shown left without the need for screws, rivets or unsightly turnbuckles - clean flat finish. The LouvreMASTER system has been successfully tested to 300Pa water resistance, refer Weather Performance Options page. The LouvreMASTER weather trims snap to head and sill and are cut between galleries - no end notching on trim or gallery channels. Full height blades always give the best appearance and are the most economical, refer following tables for standard heights in the 152mm and 102mm blade systems. The 102mm and 152mm blade can be glass, aluminium or timber.

DATE: REPLACES: SCALE:

NOV 09 AUG 03 NOT TO SCALE

Not all louvre windows are the same. Blades may hinge open and closed, but in todays houses they have to comply. These are some things you should check/compare when choosing your supplier.FEATURE Does the window comply with the relevant Australian Standards? All windows should comply but it pays to ask for written proof. Designed for exposed locations. Series 525 has a 300Pa water resistance as standard. Using the performance sill and restricting the width we may increase this rating. One of the features that helps with these performance numbers is the splayed sill that guides water away from the blades and sill seal. Clean flyscreen installation. Another feature with with Series 525 is the way we fit and secure flyscreens. The screen nests in a recess in the jambs/mullions and is secured with spring nylon clips that reduce the chance of screens rattling or falling out. Are there blade options? We offer glass, timber or extruded aluminium blades. Optional security bars. We offer heavy duty square (with rounded corners) security bars that can be fitted in elevated situations or where you want to keep the bad people out. Matching fixed sidelights. We have an inlay adaptor that allows us to fix glaze sidelights to match the adjoining louvre frame. Fixed glass is also set back to match the louvre glass location. Window can be coupled to sliding doors or other windows without visible rivets. Compatible products. Series 525 will couple with any of the other Vantage 102mm window or door frames using a custom coupler. Refer installation section. YES YES YES YES YES Series 525 YES Opposition

Adjustable Louvre window system designed to complement the Vantage 102mm windows and doors. The jambs, head and sill will clip to all 102mm Vantage products including MAGNUM windows and doors. 131mm Overall frame is wide enough to allow the flyscreen to be fitted within the frame line as shown below, without the need for screws, rivets or unsightly turnbuckles - clean flat finish. The LouvreMASTER system has been successfully tested to 300Pa water resistance, refer Weather Performance Options page. The LouvreMASTER weather trims snap to head and sill and are cut between galleries - no end notching on trim or gallery channels. Full height blades always give the best appearance and are the most economical, refer following tables for standard heights in the 152mm and 102mm blade systems. On non-standard heights the fixed blade is at the sill. This ensures that the majority of blades align through. The 102mm and 152mm blade can be glass, aluminium or timber. Two mullion strengths cover most situations. Including Darwin up to 3000Pa design wind load. Fixed inlay adaptors make it possible to have adjustable louvres and fixed lights within the same frame. Head and sill run through. This makes it easy to fit louvres over doors using one of our highlight couplers (42030 or 42027). 3 Fall in sill guides water, dust and salt out of the window system. This window is available with a builtin security bar, refer following page.

NOV 09 NOVEMBER O4 NOT TO SCALE

Vantage security LouvreMASTER frame has been designed to complement the non-security frame shown on previous page: Head and sill extrusions are the same as non-security version. Both frames look the same except for the security bars. Security bars can be fitted at: Every blade. Every second blade. Up to a set height. At mid point when louvres frame is snapped to say sliding door. The LouvreMASTER 19mm bar is more than 130% stronger than industry standard 16mm bars. It's possible to make louvre frames out of the security frame with full height flat infill and no bars. The security bars can be added to the secutity frame later if required. Screwing the central bars to frame on LouvreMASTER windows snapped to sliding door jamb would reduce the chance of damage to blades. In an elevated situation security bars may be required while the children are young. Then when they get smarter and bigger the bars could be removed and full height flat filler installed. The security bar frame also accept flyscreens into the main frame as shown right.

L o uvre M A S T E R A d j u s ta b l e L o u v reOPTIONAL FIXED INLAY DESIGN FEATURES Custom extrusions allow the fitting of fixed glazing into both LouvreMASTER window systems. It's possible to make a single window say 'Louvre-FixedFixed-Louvre'. This feature is particularly useful when fitting louvre combination windows over sliding or bi-fold doors (as shown below). The external sill bead can be splayed or square as shown right.Splayed sill bead

The fixed glass line is in the same location as the closed glass louvre blades. It's possible (but not easy) to change a 'Louvre-Fixed' window to 'Fixed-Louvre' or 'Louvre-Louvre' on site.

Safety Glazing Take care with louvre windows as they are usually high and can be mistaken for door openings. In accordance with the Australian Standard AS1288 - If glass louvre windows can be mistaken for door openings they are to be glazed with grade 'A' safety glass.Windows within 300mm of door openings also require safety glass.

Refer performance tables in these notes for the right sill to keep the water out. If in doubt fit this performance sill - the price difference is minimal.
