Privacy, ventilation and a stylish, contemporary look were the key requirements for this home in the picturesque seaside village of Wellington Point, 22kms east of Brisbane. The house features extensive use of timber inside and out, contrasting with charcoal weatherboard cladding and trim externally. Black powder coated louvres and frames were chosen to complement this look.
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were installed floor-to-ceiling on both the ground and upper levels of the home. A combination of tinted grey glass and aluminium louvres were used, in order to ensure privacy, particularly at the front of the property. The use of louvres in this way ensures that the owners can adequately ventilate their home whilst maintaining privacy from the street and neighbouring properties.
Safetyline Jalousie’s impenetrable security system also provides peace of mind for the owners, particularly where ground floor louvres are installed. The louvres can be left open without fear of a break-in, and insect screens can also be easily fitted which is essential for the area’s warm climate.
Wellington Point enjoys cooling sea breezes, and the positioning of louvres throughout the home creates excellent crossventilation, limiting the need for air conditioning and thus reducing energy costs. In harsh weather conditions, Safetyline Jalousie louvres have a weather-proof seal to keep wind and rain out, and are cyclone rated.
Safetyline Jalousie participates in a series of industry networking events and trade shows across Australia each year.
