Safetyline Jalousie will be supplying their louvre windows for the upgrade project at the Artarmon Public School in Artarmon, NSW. The redevelopment, which aims to address the school’s current overcrowding, comprises of a three-storey classroom block, a new library and a hall, and will also feature 190 bays of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows.

Lack of space caused by overcrowding is a common problem for many schools, particularly in Sydney’s growing suburbs with their rising populations. Acknowledging the problems caused by the unprecedented level of student enrolments in the region, the NSW State Government has allocated funds for 120 schools to be either built or redeveloped.

Following their approval from the NSW Department of Education, Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are becoming an increasingly popular feature in the design of these new learning spaces. The department was impressed with the ability of the louvres to maximise cross ventilation with 1.4m spans while addressing all concerns regarding safety and security. Unlike other louvre products, Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows can be glazed with laminate glass, reducing the potential hazard of shattered glass fragments. Security is inbuilt via the louvre bearer and the louvres, with a pull out force in excess of 550kg, can be left open, even outside of school hours, with complete peace of mind.

The Artarmon Public School upgrade, which will be completed early next year, is just one of many school projects that Safetyline Jalousie will be involved in over the coming months as the NSW Government’s school rollout gains pace.
