Serrata Apartments, located in Victor Harbour, Docklands, is an edgy, design-focused apartment development only moments from Collins Street and Melbourne’s CBD. The 15-level residential building with 144 apartments has been recognised with two architecture awards and the highest green star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
The building incorporates a range of sustainable features including the installation of smart meters in all apartments, low-e glazing double glazed windows to reduce the use of heaters and air conditioners, and a rain water tank used for garden irrigation and toilet flushing.
Amongst the sustainability features are Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows which are installed in the corridors to achieve maximum cross-flow ventilation.
The louvre windows are automated and integrated with the Building Management System and feature rain sensors that automatically close the louvres in rain and then open again when weather conditions improve.
The ventilation reduces energy consumption and operating costs whilst providing fresh air and natural light to the corridors.
From a design and practical perspective, Safetyline Jalousie’s energy efficient ventilation windows appear in a continuous unit up the side of the building, meeting all balustrade codes, adding aesthetic appeal and safety to the overall development.

Louvres 6.38mm “Sunergy Clear” glass to conform with the building’s key sustainability features.
