We began manufacturing jalousie windows (i.e. old style metal louvres) around 1947 and by the mid-1960’s our louvres 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 aluminium louvre windows have always been a key part of the business. Today, Breezway is owned by JELD-WEN Australia Pty Limited.
Breezway is a member of the following professional bodies:
- The Australian Window Association.
- The Window Association of New Zealand.
- The American Architectural Manufacturer’s Association.
- The Window Energy Rating Scheme.
- The Window And Door Industry Council.
- The American Society for Testing and Materials.
- The National Association of Testing Authorities.

Today, Breezway is at the forefront of louvre 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 louvre window innovations which now hold international patents, including the award-winning Powerlouvre Window.
To ensure great customer service, Breezway maintains a direct presence in Brisbane, Perth, Darwin, Townsville, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Hawaii and Malaysia. Some of these local offices hold stock and have some manufacturing capabilities.
Brisbane remains the primary manufacturing centre with custom-made orders manufactured on a 5 day lead time. The Brisbane manufacturing facility houses a customised glass louvre blade toughening plant that produces louvre blades that are flat to within 0.35mm per metre and a Powder Coating line certified by both Dulux and Akzo Nobel to apply warranty powder coats.
