Sealed units that helped seal the deal: Integral blinds
Combining functionality with aesthetic looks is not an easy task when it comes to insulating windows and facades. For a new two-storey Acute Mental Health Inpatient Unit within the Belfast City Hospital estate, our British partner Morley Glass & Glazing was approached to find a special solution for sealed units with integral blinds that would match both requirements.
Morley supplied the hospital with its SL20 MB system equipped with Technoforms warm edge spacers. It uses motorized blinds that were specially developed with two operating mechanisms – one for the patients to control inside their room, and a key operated override system for nurses to operate from the corridor. The electric brush-less motor quietly raises, lowers and tilts the integral blinds safely, smoothly and with precision.
The double-glazed sealed units with integral blinds provided by Morley Glass & Glazing were not only far more appealing, but saved the hospital thousands of pounds due to a cost-efficient construction that outmatched other systems. Thus, Technoform helped Morley win a contract with Belfast City Hospital.
