Stronghold® System

The Stronghold System is available as an added feature for your Altair Louvres to add strength and

safety to your building. 

Altair Louvre blades are retained by a pin that passes through the clips, bearing and blade. Once installed, the pins cannot be removed without tools and the blades are prevented from being removed from the clips. Pins are visible on the inside/underside of the clips.

The Stronghold System is ideal for residential or high-rise applications and is also a great option for school environments.

The Stronghold System can be screened, and offers privacy or shading options when using aluminium blades. This is well suited to wintergarden applications or outdoor residential areas. The Stronghold System also acts as a primary seal to outside noise for living or office areas.
