Historically, louvre windows have not been very compatible with the needs of school buildings.
While they most certainly deliver the required ventilation and have aesthetic appeal, conventional louvre windows have not met minimum security and safety requirements for schools in years gone by.
That was until Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows entered the Australian market in 2009. It has required a certain paradigm shift for many who have viewed louvre windows as lacking in security and safety in school environments. But over time, and with more and more school buildings being specified with Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows, the appeal of louvre windows is growing.
In discussions with specifying architects, the most common appeal of Safetyline Jalousie Louvre Windows is the ventilation provided which creates a more comfortable learning environment for students and teachers. An important objective is to maximise cross-ventilation to reduce the reliance on air conditioning/heating and minimise school operating costs.
Interestingly, it is also suggested by some that better ventilation has a positive impact on educational outcomes. If true, that in itself is a very compelling argument for the installation of louvre windows in schools.
Security is also a primary concern for school buildings. With an impenetrable security system, Safetyline Jalousie louvres can remain open all the time, allowing maximum use of natural ventilation 24 hours a day.
The fully sealed nature of Safetyline Jalousie’s louvre windows, a feature not found in many louvre window systems, is an added feature that impresses architects. Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows can be found in numerous school buildings across the country.
