St Luke’s, Swindon

St Luke’s in Swindon is a SEN school and the requirement was for a shading system to reduce heat gain and control light and glare.

To prevent the pupils interfering with the blinds an external solution was proposed by Dearnleys.

Dearnleys supplied and installed Astralux motorised 8000 venetian blinds to the top two floor of the school. On this system the blinds are fitted with guide wires to prevent excessive movement in windy conditions.

Radio controlled handset operation allows each teacher to independently operate their classroom blinds to accurately control light and glare and reduce heat gain.
