When JDH Architects were briefed to design the new Early Learning Centre for the University of Western Sydney’s Parramatta Campus, the University requested that they investigate the features and benefits of specifying Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows.
Having no previous experience with the use of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows, JDH were impressed when they discovered the unique features they offer.
What was important to this project was the ability to allow fresh air into the building without compromising the safety of the children. In assessing the safety features of the louvre windows, the architects discovered that Safetyline Jalousie’s louvre bearers, positioned 106mm apart, fall well within the ‘balustrading’ and “Prevention of children falling out of windows” building codes. They were therefore perfect for Early Learning Centre environments.
The architect particularly liked the clean lines that Safetyline Jalousie added to the design of the Child Care Centre.
The horizontal frames of the louvre windows complemented the repetitive lines of the long brick walls – creating an impressive visual appeal.
They also loved the fact that the windows were easy to install and easy to operate. Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are pre-measured and manufactured off-site, then delivered as a pre-fabricated unit. They have a sturdy operating handle allowing louvres to be easily opened and closed at several different settings.
