Teesside University

The atria in this new building was emitting too much light and into the space, affecting occupants at floor level but also the internal classrooms which were partially lit by the atria.

Dearnleys proposed the system 5000 tensioned roller blind. On this system the blind can travel vertically, horizontally or an any angle in-between as the blind is held under constant tension. In this installation bespoke brackets and guides were necessary to guide the blinds between steelwork and provide effective coverage.

As the blinds were fitted 13m above floor level a robust and proven system was essential. Operation was via electric motors and wireless (radio controlled) switching.

In addition Dearnleys fitted Astralux 2000 AV Venetian blinds to this University.
