Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were incorporated as part of the smoke ventilation system at the new Bohem Apartments located in Adelaide.

Epitomising urban luxury that has transformed Adelaide CBD, Bohem Apartments is a 22-storey development featuring 224 one, two and three bedroom apartments with stunning views over the city. The project is designed by Enzo Caroscio Architecture and Woods Bagot.

Safetyline Jalousie was recommended by an existing client for inclusion in the building’s smoke ventilation system. The escape route in any multi-storeyed building during an emergency is through the stairway. It’s therefore important to improve conditions in corridors and lobbies so that occupants can easily access the fire exits.

Installed in the corridors of each level of Bohem Apartments, the louvre windows are fitted with fire rated actuators that are programmed to open on detection of smoke. This unique safety function coupled with the system’s unmatched performance ratings in terms of wind, water and acoustics made Safetyline Jalousie an easy choice in the conception of this vertical village.

Safetyline Jalousie supplied 76 louvre windows made from 6mm Grey toughened glass, each window measuring 1894mm in height and 919mm in width. Featuring a Dark Bronze colour, the louvre windows were operated using LDF100 motors.
