The Virgin Lounge at Gold Coast International Airport is a busy facility providing a comfortable environment for members to enjoy while they are in transit waiting for their plane to depart.
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are installed along the floor of the 2nd level of the building within the Virgin Lounge area. The Lounge is located on the southern face of the building, running perpendicular to the runways.
The aesthetic appeal of the louvres was important to the architect who wanted to create a relaxing space for members to enjoy, while acoustic control was equally important to eliminate loud external aircraft noise.
However, what was of greatest appeal was that Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows have the ability to integrate with Building Management Systems.
As a critical function in the operation of an airport, an efficient fire and smoke management system is required and Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are a key feature of their smoke management system.
The louvre windows are kept permanently closed, but are built into the Building Management System (BMS) and Fire Panel to automatically open when smoke or fire is detected.
When prompted by the BMS, the louvres will automatically open to allow ‘outside fresh air’ to circulate, whilst the internal ‘smoke filled air’ is removed through the roof mounted smoke exhaust system.
