Ventilation was a key challenge in the design of this property, 7kms west of the Brisbane CBD in the riverside suburb of Chelmer. The home’s french doors and sliding windows weren’t making the best use of cooling breezes coming off the Brisbane River – Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were an ideal solution. Louvre windows provide twice as much air flow compared to regular windows and many types of doors, but can also be fully closed featuring weather-proof seals to keep rain and wind out.
French doors in the living/dining area were replaced by glass louvres in a sleek, white finish to match the modern design of the home, inside and out. The louvres provide excellent ground floor security, whilst increasing air flow to the home.
Louvres were also installed in the property’s home office, a small space prone to heat due to its location. Floor-toceiling louvres on two sides of the office now provide excellent cross-ventilation, reducing the need for powered cooling methods such as fans and air conditioning.
