The Lexicon Bracknell - Louvre Wall & Louvre Doors

Duco Ventilation & Sun Control NV

The bulk of the project, spread over seven large blocks, used DucoWall Basic to provide plant screening. One element, where higher level glazing needs privacy screening from the walkways below, DucoWall Classic W 50Z is installed inverted so that the areas gain maximum light without sacrificing privacy. Another challenge was to incorporate louvre doors into the plant screening areas without interrupting the aesthetic appearance. Here again a standard DucoDoor solution provided exactly what was required. The DucoDoor can use the full range of DucoWall blades to provide a beautiful and uniform result.

The Louvre Museaum , Paris

TOTO

The Louvre is the most visited museum in the world. Opened in 1989, the entrance area below the pyramid was originally designed to accommodate 4.5 million visitors per year. Just 25 years later, the number of visitors exceeded the 10 million mark. As a result, the museum decided to do major renovations that would have the lowest possible impact on the building architecture. Visitor numbers mean extraordinary requirements for the sanitary facilities. The Louvre chose TOTO for sanitary facilities located in the Hall Napoléon. Toilets, urinals, washbasins and hand dryers for the men's and women's washrooms.

Louvre Museum Expo - Duc de Luynes, France

Guardian Glass (Australia)

In museums, glass displays protect valuable artefacts from damage or distress, whilst presenting them in the best possible light. Sometimes the glass itself can act as an obstruction to the view. Unwanted glare, reflections or reduced lighting levels can obstruct visitors’ views through the glass, preventing precious works of art from being seen clearly and in their original colour and detail.

Overheating library is no sweat for Dearnleys

Astralux Blind System

Visitors to Horsforth Library in Leeds were having difficulty using the computers due to too much glare. In addition, in the summer the solar gain through the roof glazing was making the library uncomfortably hot. Dearnleys proposed the Astralux 6000 louvre blind system which is ideal for sloping glazing as the slats are securely held on rack arms. These arms allow the slats to be tilted to control light and glare. At this site the blinds were operated by a detachable crank handle but motorisation is also available.
