Wide spans, strict Railcorp regulations & 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 designed to protect the railway lines 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) = 33dB (0;-1) in tests carried out at the National Acoustic Laboratories, in accordance with Australian Standard AS 1191-2002.
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows have also been specified for the Meriton Altitude Apartments in Parramatta and 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 Takoda 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.
