Wide spans, strict RailCorp regulations and an impressive acoustic performance were three of the main reasons Architectural firm PTW recommended Safetyline Jalousie Louvre Windows to Meriton for their Luna Apartments project in Lewisham, NSW.
Architect Michael Yip was particularly impressed with the neat look of the larger span and the ability to customise the width to suit the overall building aesthetics.
Strict DA conditions were imposed to protect the railway lines adjacent to the apartments from items being dropped from the building. Safetyline Jalousie’s ability to limit the opening size of the window was key to meeting those conditions.
The close proximity to the railway line also meant that windows with a strong acoustic performance were required. 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 Apartment Bondi Junction
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows have also recently been specified for the Aqua Apartments in Bondi Junction, NSW.
Designed to maximise sun, air and views, architects KANNFINCH in association with DC Studio and interiors by Koichi Takada Architects selected Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows to complement the overall glazing component of the building, achieve efficient cross flow ventilation and meet regulatory safety standards.
Key features of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are:
- Spans - extra wide spans up to 1.4 metres
- Security - inbuilt & impenetrable
- Seals - weatherproof with superior acoustic, wind & water performance
- Screens - removable, internal screens
