The project brief called for an automated solution to control the levels of sunlight and heat associated with the facility's eight-meter high skylights – critically important factors contributing to the venue's suitability for a wide variety of conference centre uses.
Verosol Pleated Blinds from Luxaflex® Window Fashions delivered the best solution. The fabric itself has unique thermal-dynamic properties as it's backed by a thin layer aluminium which reflects solar energy and heat in summer and insulates against heat loss in winter. The fabric is flame retardant, available in nine colours and a variety of weaves ranging from transparent to semi-transparent, to a complete blackout option – ideal for when audio/visual equipment is in use.
Verosol Pleated Blinds from Luxaflex® Window Fashions have the advantage of being able to be installed horizontally making them ideal for skylight applications. Given the height and scale of Villa Maria's conference centre, automated operation of the blinds provided simple, one-touch automation via remote control from anywhere within the venue.
