Reading SEN School

The clerestory glazing used for in the library of this school needed to be shaded to prevent excessive light gain but the shaped glazing at the two side elevations meant any solar shading would have to be shaped to fit.

Dearnleys proposed the Astralux 6000 louvre blind system as the slats on this system can be cut to match angular or, as in this case, curved glazing.

The blinds were motorised and linked to a building management system (BMS) providing a high degree of glare control.

Dearnleys also installed system 4000 dim-out blinds, system 3000 roller blinds, system 2000 venetian blinds and curtains and tracks to this site.
