Safetyline Jalousie Louvre Windows

Louvre windows are stylish, functional, energy efficient and can be customised to suit a variety of design possibilities. Louvres allow maximum air circulation – when fully open, they allow twice as much air to circulate compared to
traditional window designs. By maximising cool breezes and allowing cross-ventilation, the need for air conditioning in summer is significantly reduced. In winter, louvre windows seal to keep warm air in, and harsh elements and draughts out. Energy bills can be reduced all year round.

This Nature Loo solution is free of odours, chemicals, pollution, pumps and high maintenance and electrical costs. It also saves the typical family some 35,000 litres of water per year.

Astec_Paints_Energy_Star

Astec Paints Energy Star – Cooling Our Urban Environment.

Our ongoing research and development into Elastomeric and Heat Reflective Coatings created paint coatings that reflect heat by selective reflection of infra red light. This enabled us, as a first for Australia, to offer dark colours that reflect fully 50% of Solar Energy.

Dirtguard IR Elastic is a crack bridging 100% acrylic elastomeric waterproof membrane with a high Infra red heat Reflectivity.

Substrate movement leads to cracks which over time allow destructive water and industrial gases to penetrate. Conventional exterior paint will crack with substrate movement.

Developed for our harsh Australian conditions, the superior properties of this membrane have seen it specified in very dense Urban Environments across all our Export Markets including Tokyo Japan, Bangkok Thailand, Seoul Korea, and Singapore.

Specified as the final paint membrane coat to masonry, and textured walling systems.

SDS-PR-RapidRidge-MainImage

Rapid Ridge

Rapid Ridge Ventilated Dry Ridge System is a brand new concept in Australia. Although widely used throughout Europe for many years, here in Australia we have not moved from a ‘wet’ traditional method of mortar and pointing for securing ridge caps. The dry ridge system is not only quicker and easier to install, but it provides huge environmental benefits including a lower
electricity bill for cooling costs.

The system, which can be installed in most weather conditions, allows an open ridge at the highest point in the roof. This facilitates a continuous flow of air through the roof and eliminates the radiating heat through the tiles into the roof space. It can be installed in half the time compared to traditional mortar and pointing and requires no maintenance post installation.
