Austral Bowling Club, located 50 kilometres south-west of the Sydney CBD, had a specific requirement for ventilation for an outdoor gaming terrace, to ensure it met regulations for a smoking area. Architects 2RKS Architecture and Design decided on louvre windows to deliver the required minimum ventilation to meet this need.
The gaming terrace is on the second floor of the Club and overlooks the bowling green, so safety was also a concern. In addition, the gaming terrace faces west, which presented additional challenges in terms of heat from the westerly afternoon sun.
Safetyline Jalousie louvres were selected for the project over other louvre options because of superior performance, operation, maintenance, aesthetics and price.
The strength, durability and impenetrable security of Safetyline Jalousie louvres provides a safe & secure environment in the gaming area along with excellent ventilation.
The large maximum width of 1.4 metres helped with the external look of the terrace, enhancing the architecture rather than appearing cluttered, and the louvres have a clean, stylish look with the absence of metal edge strips featured on other louvre products. This also makes the louvres very easy to clean.
Mechanically, Safetyline Jalousie louvres are very robust, and were installed with a motorised, automated open and close function, and integrated into the C-Bus control and management system at the Club. To help combat the westerly aspect of the terrace, a special low e glass was chosen for the louvres which minimises heat gain.
