What's The Advantage Of Electrical Jalousie Window Openers? (Update)

( Last update 4th May, 2022 )

Automatic jalousie windows are a major type of smoke vent windows. For some factories, these windows meet the requirement of fire inspection. Furthermore, jalousie windows can be one of the anti-theft methods. When the windows are opened, it will significantly improve the ventilation and natural light.

The jalousie windows we discuss here were made of aluminum frames. The leaves of jalousie windows could be aluminum, plastic steel, or glass. We installed linear actuators on the windows to open or close the leaves electrically.

Why Jalousie Windows?

Aluminum jalousie windows were usually for outdoor space, gale, beach building, or security needs. Furthermore, the cost of jalousie windows is about half of the top hung windows. Therefore, factory owners usually choose to install jalousie windows.

The mechanism of Electric Window Opening Systems for Jalousie Windows was based on linear actuators. The system connected linear actuators with the moving bars of the jalousie windows. When the linear actuators are extended, the leaves will open. Furthermore, when all the leaves turn to 90 degrees, which can maximize the ventilation area.

The Advantage Of Automatic Jalousie Windows With Linear Actuators On The Side Of Windows

  1. Shorten the installation time: It is easier to upgrade the jalousie windows with linear actuators.

  2. Cost down: It does take less force to open a jalousie window than top-hung windows, and the dimension of these two windows are the same.

  3. One actuator triggers two windows: We can use only one actuator to open two windows if there are short windows.

  4. Smoke ventilation area: Top hung window > Jalousie window > sliding window

  5. Insect screen: There will be a small cut around the connecting brackets.

The Component Of Electric Jalousie Window Openers

If you are going to upgrade traditional jalousie windows to electric jalousie windows. There are components for upgrading:

  1. Linear actuator: We usually use with 48 mm stroke length. ( Ref.: KST-A01 Linear Actuator )

  2. Special brackets: We have stainless steel brackets specially made for jalousie windows, connecting the linear actuator and jalousie window. ( KST-BKT-04, KST-BKT-05 brackets )

  3. Controller unit: control windows for "OPEN," "STOP," and "CLOSE." Or support for the central fire system. ( Ref.: KST-B1 Controller )

Hidden Or Exposed Automatic Jalousie Window Mechanism?

Some building owners decide to install electric window openers at the beginning of building design. They choose electric jalousie windows with linear actuators or motor mechanisms inside the window frames.

If you are going to modify existing jalousie windows electronically. You could also install linear actuators outside the window frames. There are pros and cons of these two types of installations:

1. It is easy to maintain the exposed linear actuators

Excellent quality linear actuators usually pass over 80,000 times durability tests. Sometimes, the brackets would be rusty due to the following environment: rainy, high wind, salty, humidity, etc. It will be easier to replace new parts.

2. There are various types of hidden mechanism window opening systems.

The hidden type will be linear actuators installed inside the window frame or a motor-triggered mechanism. Durability is very different. We suggest that people choose products/ motors that pass the functional durability test.

3. One linear actuator for two jalousie windows

If the jalousie windows in your project are short. It would cost-down to push two windows simultaneously by using one linear actuator.

4. The color of linear actuators is customizable.

With the anodized treatment of particular color, we could make the color of linear actuators match the window frames' color.

Electric Rolling Shutter Or Exposed Electric Jalousie Window Opener?

1. Functions of electric jalousie window opener with linear actuators

There is a new product of electric rolling shutter. People can adjust the angle of leaves according to the solar altitude angle. Furthermore, the shutter can fully open, like the garage door.

On the contrary, our electric jalousie window system will keep the frame structure while windows are opened.

2. Cost of manufacture and installation

The cost of a rolling shutter is five times than the jalousie windows with linear actuators. Therefore, it will be better choice for those factory owners who take the price as the top priority.

Cases Of Electric Jalousie Window Openers

👉 Case 1 - Storehouse

The warehouse was mainly for storage. There are 3 special applications of electric jalousie window openers:

  1. 1 linear actuator control two jalousie windows;

  2. One linear actuator for controlling about 1.5-meter height jalousie window;

  3. The manager could use a remote controller to control all warehouse windows.

👉 Case 2 - Factory

There is a row of jalousie windows for ventilation in the attic. The stack effect will be significant when these jalousie windows are opened. Our partner in South Korea, Louver Hitec, installed one actuator for every two windows in this project. It will reduce about half of the cost of the electric window openers.

👉 Case 3 - Piggery

The piggery was located in South Korea. There will be snow during the winter, but hot in summer. Therefore, cold-proof and ventilation are both very important. The owner installed positive ventilation facilities and electric window openers to improve the natural vent. ( More details about this case )

👉 Case 4 - Commercial Building

This commercial building was designed with an atrium in the center. The opening area will introduce ample natural light and natural ventilation. Make every floor embraced by great air and sunshine. They change all the louver windows to electric jalousie windows. Control all windows easily from the center panel. The automated window opening systems provided a fantastic natural vent in summer and well cold-proof in winter. ( More details about this case )

👉 Case 5 - Office

The office was located on the first floor. The company needs to reinforce security but also like to keep the natural light and ventilation. Therefore, they installed electric jalousie windows outside their original windows. The manager could open or close all windows quickly by remote control. When it is closed, providing excellent security for the office. ( More details about this case )

👉 Case 6 - Household, Sundance Louvered Roofs

People need some shade in the sunny southern United States, but they would like to keep well vent and little natural light. With this electrical sundance, louvered roofs. People could adjust the angle of leaves according to the sunlight electrically. When it is raining, the top can be fully closed by pushing a button on the switch. For more details:

👉 Case 7 - Public Space, POST Building

The roof of the Post Building was designed with an attic vent. There is a row of jalousie windows for ventilation and sunlight. ( More details about this case )

👉 Case 8 - Factory

The jalousie windows in the factory are with insect screens. It is essential to have insect screens in Taiwan, which is located subtropical. There will be a short cut around the connecting brackets. ( More details about this case )
