City of London Academy Islington

Electric dim-out blinds for rooflight windows, City of London Academy Islington

This new build school featured a central atrium used as a multi-purpose open space for school assemblies and performance arts lessons. Classrooms and corridors on the upper levels opened out over the central space and four large roof light provide natural daylight throughout the school.

However during drama lessons, theatrical performances and school events using projector screens a high degree of room darkening was required.

Waverley were instructed to install electrically operated dim-out blinds to the roof light windows. Each blind measures 2m wide x 10m length. The rooflights are 12m above the floor level and a powered access platform was used to gain access.

Waverley installers are trained in working at heights and carry IPAF licences.
