6 THE 100% OPENING ADVANTAGE Though louvre design has changed a great deal since their early days, one thing has remained constant louvres are the only window system that gives you the 100% opening advantage. This means louvres are the most practical window system on the market when it comes to taking advantage of breezes and natural ventilation. By design, louvres offer the least resistance to air flow. Open them for the full breeze effect, tilt them for ventilation even on a rainy day, or simply close them to seal the home and protect it from elements. The practicality of louvres mean that they can be used anywhere or better yet, everywhere. Use louvres to open up a room or the entire house to fresh air and cool breezes. Cooling and ventilating your home with fresh, natural breezes is not only healthy, but also energy efficient. So you save money whilst doing your bit for the environment. 05
7 WHY LOUVRES? Go ahead, let the breeze in. It's free, it's green. 06
8 DESIGNED TO PERFORM From the beginning, Ventus set out to design and build a better louvre gallery. Intelligent, yet simple design, robust components, tighter tolerances and better raw materials are just some of the features of Ventus louvre galleries. Designers Tony Kearney (L) and Max Dickison (R) from Designmakers, were integral to the development of the Ventus louvre galleries. Their knowledge of materials, processes and technology were pivotal to making Ventus louvre galleries better by design. The Ventus louvre gallery was designed to improve the most fundamental limitation of louvre galleries... the sealing between the blades when closed. Using our patented Rubber Contact Block, Ventus created a collapsible contact point between louvre blades. This means when closed, the blades come closer to each other and create a more positive seal. A more positive seal between the blades translates to a more air-tight, more water-tight and more sound proof window, which makes it a better window. 07 So we don't just say that Ventus louvre gallery is better by design, we designed it to perform.
9 THE VENTUS LOUVRE GALLERY BUILT TO LAST The Ventus louvre gallery is manufactured using modern materials from the most reputable suppliers in the industry. We wanted our galleries to last a long time. In fact, we wanted them to last a lifetime. So we used non-toxic, environmentally friendly, UV stabilised, non-corrosive and resilient materials throughout. No compromises, no substitutes. For strength and durability, we chose the proven 6063 T5 architectural aluminum alloy. Our components are extruded and machined to the tightest tolerances and industry standards for perfect fitment and function. For coating our aluminum, we chose the PPG range of powder coats. Resilient and wear resistant, these coatings can withstand years of exposure and the day-to-day operation of the louvres. For durability in our louvre handles, trims and caps we chose DuPont s UV stabilised Delrin 100P. It is virtually indestructible, UV resilient and can stand up to use and the elements for years. For superior weather performance in our patented louvre clip, we chose ExxonMobil s UV stabilised high-impact Polypropylene Resin that will not break, stay flexible and look good for years. For long-lasting flexibility and UV resilience, our Rubber Contact Block is made of ExxonMobil s Vistalon EPDM rubber that will remain flexible and guarantee tighter sealing between our blades for years. For precision and corrosion resistant fasteners that guarantee flawless operation, we chose BTI s range of 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel and High Tensile Aluminum screws and rivets. 08
10 DO WE STAND UP TO THE ELEMENTS? ABSOLUTELY!!! The Ventus louvre gallery was designed specifically for use in tropical environments, where nature is known to be unforgiving. By combining cutting edge design, quality materials and precision manufacturing we built a gallery that is all about performance. In fact, we guarantee that when used properly and installed correctly within the design parameters and specifications, Ventus louvre galleries will stand up to harsh weather conditions and tropical extremes. But we did not expect anyone to take our word for it. We know that designs mean little without testing, and claims are empty without proof. So we put the Ventus louvre gallery through one of the most stringent testing regimes on the planet - the AS4420 (Testing Methods for Windows), and certified it in accordance to AS (Windows in Buildings). So you know that your home is secured and your family is safe from the elements. This is our promise and your peace of mind. For a complete set of test results, please contact your nearest authorized Ventus reseller, or send a request to 09
12 Ventus louvre windows come with a variety of security options that will give you peace of mind, without compromising the look or function of your windows. VENTUS BAR-LOC SECURITY BARS Simple yet effective, the patented Bar-Loc security bars are easy to install on both new and existing windows. Bar-Loc Security Bars are spaced at intervals that prevent intruders from gaining entry, whilst not impeding the operation of the louvres, interfering with the breeze or notably restricting your views. 11
13 FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND VENTUS FORTRESS STAINLESS STEEL (SS) SECURITY SCREENS The Ventus Fortress SS Security Screen is the ultimate in architectural window security. Strong, non-corrosive, insect and ember proof, the Ventus Fortress SS Security Screen will protect your home without compromising aesthetics, or interfere with the operation of the louvres. However, as with all woven wire screens, installing the Fortress SS Security Screen on your louvre windows will result to some restriction of air-flow. 12
