Louvre windows from Safetyline Jalousie were specified for a new Early Learning Centre designed for the University of Western Sydney's Parramatta Campus in NSW.
The University’s brief for JDH Architects included a request to consider Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows for the project. Using Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows for the first time, JDH’s architects were very impressed with their unique features.
A key requirement in the project was for the design to allow fresh air into the building without compromising the safety of the children. When the safety features of the louvre windows were assessed, the architects discovered that Safetyline Jalousie's louvre bearers, positioned 106mm apart, were well within the 'balustrading' and ‘Prevention of children falling out of windows’ building codes, making them perfect for Early Learning Centre environments.
The architects particularly liked the clean lines that Safetyline Jalousie added to the design of the Child Care Centre. The horizontal frames of the louvre windows complement the repetitive lines of the long brick walls, enhancing the visual appeal.
The louvre windows’ easy installation and operation also worked in Safetyline Jalousie's favour. Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are pre-measured and manufactured off-site, then delivered as a pre-fabricated unit for installation. A sturdy operating handle allows the louvres to be easily opened and closed at several different settings.
Safetyline Jalousie supplied 21 louvre windows measuring 469mm (3 blades) – 1684mm (12 blades) height and 600mm – 1100mm width, finished in Dulux Citi Pearl with louvres made from 6.38mm Viridian ComfortPlus clear toughened glass.
