KEEPING THE VILLAGE HOTEL COOL November 2008
The new VILLAGE hotel in London’s Elstree, a recent addition to the hotel chains’ ‘Premium’ range, has a reputation to uphold, for first class, modern comfort. Levolux has ensured that staff and guests at the stunning hotel, stay elegantly cool with a state of the art 9000 Fin system that delivers the perfect blend of form and function.
In addition to contoured Ventilation Louvres used to screen plant areas at high level, Levolux fitted its 9000 Fin Solar Shading system across the hotel’s entrance and to provide shading to glazed areas along each elevation of the building. The Levolux 9000 Fin system comprises of vertical stacks of horizontal 300mm aluminium Aerofoil Fins fitted to a series of ‘H’ posts, also supplied and fitted by Levolux.
This extremely efficient external Solar Shading system, developed by Levolux, reduces solar heat gain by as much as 95%, helping to minimise the hotel’s reliance on expensive, energy sapping air conditioning.
Finished with a co-ordinated dark grey powder coating, the Levolux Solar Shading system and contoured Ventilation Louvres combine to create a sleek, modern contrast against the glass backdrop – highlighting the creative aesthetic potential Levolux’s Solar Shading products offer architects.
