Electric roller blinds for University of Brighton

The university’s Checkland Building Library features large glazed windows over two floors. The external solar shading fins had proved inadequate for shading the interior and students were complaining of problems with extreme glare.

Waverley manufactured and installed electric roller blinds to the windows using ThetaBlock 40 fabric. The wide width fabric allowed the blinds to be made without the need for joins in the fabric.

The blinds can be operated, individually and in a group. Library staff control the blinds via a wall mounted radio switch.

The blinds were installed using a mobile scaffold tower and the installation was carried out over a weekend to keep disruption to a minimum.
