Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were used to create an impressive floor to ceiling external wall at the Aquatic Centre at Trinity Grammar School in Summer Hill, NSW.
Designed by Gardner Wetherill & Associates, the Aquatic Centre incorporates Safetyline Jalousie’s louvre windows to provide both ventilation and security to the facility. When designing the Centre, the architects prioritised these objectives and sought a window solution that would fit the module design of the building. Louvre windows were the only window style considered to achieve the level of ventilation required.
In the course of their research, the architects discovered that Safetyline Jalousie’s louvre windows were the only option when it came to meeting the specific security requirements. The inbuilt and impenetrable security feature, which is unique to Safetyline Jalousie, will never compromise security even if the windows are left open or the glass is broken.
Being motorised, the louvre windows can be opened when the weather conditions are right, automatically shutting down the mechanical ventilation system to deliver significant energy cost savings. They are also integrated with an acoustic monitoring system that closes the louvres automatically when the noise level rises to a certain volume.
The wide 1400mm spans of the louvre windows suited the modular design of the building and added aesthetic appeal to the overall design of the Centre.
