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 is expected that a high number of homes and businesses that will have suffered damage.
An upside for those who need to rebuild is the opportunity to construct 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 houses, perfect for providing cross ventilation and maximising the flow of air.
Windows for Wind Protection
There are few louvre windows on the market that match the high-performance standards of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows. Safetyline Jalouse louvre window’s glass 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 wind protection 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.
