When Gowrie Primary School planned for a new auditorium, there was a clear requirement for good ventilation – both during school hours and after the school is closed for the day.
Louvre windows were chosen for use throughout the auditorium, in a combination of glass and aluminium. Security was of particular concern, because an important function of the louvre windows is a night air purge – the louvres need to be left open at night to allow warm air to escape, on both the upper and lower levels of the auditorium. During the day, ventilation is also important – the auditorium is used for assemblies for almost 200 students, along with other activities.
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were chosen due to their superior seals, quality manufacture and large width availability. Weatherproof seals keep out harsh elements when the louvres are in a closed position, and the substantial, robust mechanics of Safetyline Jalousie make them perfect for use in high-traffic areas. The large width made the installation process easier, and aesthetically, the larger banks of louvres complement the overall design of the auditorium.
