Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows have been installed at the Canberra Region Cancer Centre in ACT to help the facility deliver a highly controlled environment. Designed by HBO+EMTB Architects, the Canberra Region Cancer Centre is an outpatient medical facility for patients receiving their medications intravenously.
By delivering a highly controlled environment, the facility ensures there is no cross-contamination of air in the building. This is achieved with the superior seals featured around each Safetyline Jalousie louvre blade. The motorised louvres made from 6mm Viridian EVantage SuperGreen toughened glass can also be triggered open by the building management system, providing a clever technical solution for their fire and emergency system.
Safetyline Jalousie supplied 14 louvre windows, each measuring 2761mm in height (20 blades) and 500mm-1100mm in width for the medical facility. Installed in windows located adjacent to the fire escape stairways, the louvre windows provide an ‘air relief’ grill. During an emergency, the louvre windows will open up automatically, decreasing air pressure within the building and preventing smoke from entering the fire escape stairs where higher air pressure is maintained.
Safetyline Jalousie's louvre windows delivered a solution that not only maintained the quality of the air conditioning system but also enhanced the aesthetics of the building. Considered a perfect match for the recessed window design of the building, the Safetyline Jalousie louvre window system creates a frameless external appearance.
