Whenever there’s a cyclone in North Queensland there’s always a lot of re-building that needs to occur afterwards. After Cyclone Debbie it will be no different. There will no doubt be numerous homes and businesses that will suffer damage.
An upside for those who need to re-build is the opportunity to build with materials and products that can withstand the pressures of future cyclonic conditions.
Queenslander homes have always been synonymous with louvre windows. Louvre windows are a staple in the design of Queensland homes and perfect for providing cross ventilation and maximising breezes in the tropical climates.
There are few louvre windows on the market however that match the high performance standards of Safetyline Jalousie Louvre Windows.
Safetyline Jalouse Louvre Window’s glass louvre blades have been tested for ‘debris type B’ for cyclonic regions. The testing is performed using 8mm steel ball missiles. The windows passed the standards test at 45 metres per second, and even exceeded the standard. Additionally the windows passed the test at 60 metres per second with 5 x 8mm stainless steel balls.
Due to the impressive performance standards and cyclone ratings achieved, Safetyline Jalousie Louvre Windows are a key feature in many Queensland Government Cyclone Shelters. The shelters are designed to provide protection from winds up to 306km per hour experienced in a Category 5 cyclone.
