Breezway History

We began manufacturing jalousie windows (i.e. old style metal louvers) around 1947 and by the mid-1960’s our louvers were being exported to over 65 countries. Over the years the company has manufactured a number of other products including munitions (during the Second World War) and fluorescent lights, but aluminum louver windows have always been a key part of the business. Today, Breezway is owned by JELD-WEN Australia Pty Limited.

history

Breezway is now at the forefront of louver window technology and design with a constant stream of product improvements flowing from our Brisbane-based R&D Centre. The R&D team facilities include advanced 3D modelling CAD software, on-site tooling and manufacturing facilities and an on-site NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) approved window testing laboratory that allows new products to be tested and refined before being launched into the market. As a result, the team has developed many louver window innovations which now hold international patents, including the award-winning Powerlouver Window. To ensure great customer service, Breezway maintains a direct presence in Brisbane, Perth, Darwin, Townsville, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Malaysia. Some of these local offices hold stock and have some manufacturing capabilities.
