Surf Shack Renovation, Coastal Breezes
Oahu, Hawaii, United States
Altair Louvre Window strip hardware (in white) has been integrated into a third party frame with an outside screen configuration. 152mm (6”) clear obscure glass blades have been installed with standard handles for easy control at lower levels.
By installing Altair Louvres up high, this creates a thermal chimney effect which is a great way to naturally cool a room. This is effective because rising hot air is able to escape the room through the high up louvres, allowing outside air to be drawn in through the lower windows and doors. This avoids warm air being re-circulated inside the home resulting in a more comfortable living space.
