Louvered windows and fire codes

Louvered or jalousie windows can be installed in any structure, however due to the nature of louvered windows special considerations must be taken to ensure egress in the case of a fire. We recommend referring to your local building codes to find out exactly what egress options must be met. Usually this includes egress capable windows of certain sizes to be installed, especially in bedrooms.

Each country and state has different fire codes, so please contact your local building code officer for the correct information.
