Safetyline Jalousie  has supplied louvre windows to complement the ecologically sustainable design of the Maroochy Arts and Ecology Centre in Maroochydore, QLD.

Located within the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanical Gardens, the Maroochy Arts and Ecology Centre is a specialised centre providing the community with an inviting environment for art workshops, social gatherings as well as community and cultural meetings.

The building design incorporates a strong ecologically sustainable focus beginning with the environment-friendly architecture and landscape design, right up to generating its own solar power, ensuring water supply through rainwater harvesting and using sustainable materials.

With the emphasis on ecologically sustainable design, it was important for the Centre to be built to maximise natural ventilation and capture cooling breezes as opposed to installing air conditioning.

Key reasons for the selection of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows:

  • Impenetrable security system allows the windows to be used at both high and low levels
  • Provides peace of mind against intrusion
