Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were specified for major apartment projects in NSW for their ability to meet unique design requirements.
Luna Apartments - Lewisham
Architectural firm PTW recommended the louvre windows to Meriton’s Luna Apartments project in Lewisham, NSW after making sure the Safetyline Jalousie products met the wide span and acoustic performance requirements of the project as well as strict Railcorp regulations.
Architect Michael Yip was particularly impressed with the neat look of the louvre window’s larger span and the ability to customise its width to suit the overall building aesthetics.
Strict DA conditions were imposed to protect the railway lines running adjacent to the apartments from items being dropped from the building. Safetyline Jalousie met these conditions with their ability to limit the opening size of their louvre windows.
Additionally, a strong acoustic performance was necessary given the close proximity of the apartments to the railway lines. Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows achieved a weighted sound reduction index of Rw (C;Ctr) = 32dB (0;-1) in tests carried out at the National Acoustic Laboratories, in accordance with Australian Standard AS 1191-2002.
Aqua Apartments - Bondi Junction
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were recently specified for the Aqua Apartments project in Bondi Junction, NSW.
Architects KANNFINCH in association with DC Studio and Koichi Takada Architects selected Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows to complement the overall glazing component of the building, achieve efficient crossflow ventilation and meet regulatory safety standards.
Key features of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows include extra wide spans up to 1.4 metres; inbuilt and impenetrable security; weatherproof seals with superior acoustic, wind and water performance; and removable, internal screens.
