Mermet supplied replacement blinds for a large roofed area at Newcastle College.
The light in this large space needed controlling, as such the blinds needed to be robust and durable with a heavy bottom bar. The specified blind needed to have a drop of 6.0m and the rooms acoustics needed to be addressed.
Nearly 400 sqm of glazing was shaded with the installation of 36 motorised blinds, each 2.0m wide x 6.0 drop using Mermet’s Acoustis 50 fabric.
The fabric was selected in slate grey and provided excellent light control with a VT level of 5%, meaning that 95% of light is prevented from entering the chamber.
The same fabric offers acoustic comfort with improved heat control.
The Mermet Acoustis 50 is an acoustically absorbent fabric, less than 1 mm thick, with both an excellent fire rating and stability.
