Motorised louvre windows from Safetyline Jalousie were specified for the new START Training Centre in Frankston, Victoria to maximise ventilation in the building.

One of the largest trade training facilities in Australia, the $18.5 million START (School Tafe Alliance for Regional Training) is a purpose-built training centre with learning spaces for trade based qualifications such as painting, welding and carpentry. Seeking to maximise natural ventilation throughout the whole building, especially in the workshop rooms, architect Gray Puksand specified Safetyline Jalousie’s motorised, glazed louvre windows to meet these objectives.

Safetyline Jalousie’s louvre windows met the NCC (National Construction Code) requirement for the level of ventilation at the centre. It was also important to eliminate any ingress of dust or water inside the building.

Weatherproof seals in Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows on four sides of each louvre blade create a tight seal, presenting an ideal solution in the workshop environment as well as for the high window bays exposed to wind and rain.

The high quality engineering associated with Safetyline Jalousie’s louvre window motor drives was also a key factor for the architect in specifying the windows for this building project.

Safetyline Jalousie supplied 154 motorised louvre windows measuring 469mm – 2224mm (3 - 16 blades) in height and 522mm – 1337mm in width. Designed with a clear anodised finish, the windows featured 6mm EVantage Grey toughened glass louvres.
