Acoustic performance was the primary reason that louvre windows from Safetyline Jalousie were selected for installation in the Airtrain station building at Brisbane Airport. A privately owned and operated railway located at the airport, Airtrain provides transport between Brisbane Airport, Brisbane City and the Gold Coast.

Given the environment, W.I.M. Architects were careful during the building’s design process to specify windows that delivered an acoustic performance strong enough to cope with the high level of aircraft noise. Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were chosen because of their ability to deliver sound reduction of up to 32dB.

Safety and security were the additional considerations for the selection of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows in this application since it was important to create a comfortable workplace for Airtrain staff. Featuring internal stainless steel rods, the louvre windows delivered the required strength, durability and impenetrable security.

Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows supplied for the project measured 1400mm in width, the widest available on the market. The louvre windows also delivered important ventilation and natural light into the building.

Safetyline Jalousie supplied seven louvre windows for the installation, each measuring 2400mm x 1400mm, in a clear anodised frame finish and featuring 6mm clear toughened glass louvres.
