Type of works: manufacture, project manage and install approximately 200 Adaptium RL10 roller blinds to provide a simple yet highly effective solar-shading solution.
The new Epping Forest College is based at the existing Borders Lane site. A four-storey landmark building continues to offer a wide range of academic and vocational qualifications at all levels, including the re-provision of a public library, as well as working alongside local educational providers and businesses. The new campus comprises approximately 14,500m² of space and brings social and economic benefits to the area and provides a massive boost to further and higher education in southwest Essex.
Faber Blinds were selected to manufacture, project manage and install approximately 200 roller blinds in this new college campus to provide a simple yet highly effective solar-shading solution. This specific product (Adaptium RL10) is a robust, heavy-duty contract roller-blind system, which allows for the production of large single or banded blinds. A fabric with a 3% openness fabric was selected to reduce heat gain whilst still allowing visibility to the outside and creating a comfortable learning environment.
