WINNING A LINEOUT AT TWICKENHAM June 2008
A strong pack of state of the art solar shading solutions has been fitted at the development, to provide maximum solar shielding (up to 90%) for corporate entertainment areas and a hotel at the rear of the new stand.
By combining Aerofoil Fins, Matrix XL, Walk on Brise Soleil systems and a bespoke rugby-ball shaped nosing, Levolux has created a stylish, efficient way to prevent solar gain and to help manage internal temperatures.
At the ground and first floor levels, 280mm horizontal aluminium Aerofoil Fins have been fitted to offer an attractive solar shading solution.
The Walk on Brise Soleil system also provides a rigid platform to allow maintenance work and window cleaning to be carried out safely whenever needed as well as providing solar shading protection.
Finally, Levolux Ventilation Louvres have been installed to screen plant areas on the South Stand roof. They feature a contoured, aerodynamic shape, with inherent strength, for an attractive appearance and maximum ventilation.
Like many Levolux products they are virtually maintenance free too. The ongoing South Stand project, to increase capacity and provide luxury hotel, leisure and arts facilities at Twickenham Stadium, is scheduled to finish in 2009.
