Carnegie Pavilion

This £21m development creating world class media and players' facilities and teaching space all under one roof needed solar shading and dim-out blinds to control light and thermal gain.

Dearnleys proposed the Astralux 4000 Dim-out system but as the glazing was sloping outwards a cassetted zip system was used. This clever roller blind has zips welded to the edge of the fabric which run in the side channels of the blind. This ensures the blind always runs square and is ideal for sloping glazing as the blind is permanently guided. A flame retardant screen fabric was used in most areas to effectively control light levels and solar gain but also allowing a view to the outside.

Standard Astralux 3000 roller blinds were installed where there was vertical glazing, with a flame retardant black-out fabric in the media centre.

In total 185 blinds were installed on this project.
