St Bernard’s High School

A new build sports hall at this school had clerestory windows on two elevations to help light the space but for this multi-use hall the level of light needed to be controlled.

Dearnleys proposed the Astralux 6000 louvre blind fitted externally to the windows to prevent damage to the blinds from sports activities.

In this system the aluminium slats are securely held on vertical rack arms and can then be tilted until the desired level of light control is achieved.

Given the position of the blinds they were all electrically operated and controlled by switches inside the hall.
