The Peninsula School is an independent co-educational Anglican day and boarding school located in Mount Eliza, Victoria and was founded back in 1961. A new extension to the school was started in 2013 providing a ultra modern and comfortable state of the art learn space.
Large single glazed Coltlite operable glass louvred ventilators where chosen to provide cross flow ventilation through the classrooms. The Coltlite single glazed frameless louvred heat & smoke ventilators are designed to close in the event of a fire and due to their good air permeability rating, provide excellent sealing properties to facilitate this requirement. With a large coefficient, the Coltlite provides excellent natural ventilation.
As the Coltlites are installed within the corridors and classrooms with automated control, toughened heat soaked safety glass with polished edges was fitting as standard, along with anti-finger trapment 24v motors to provide additional safety to the students and staff.
On the external facade, A Colt Sunshelf window hood system was installed to provide solar shading to the glazing preventing unwanted solar glare and solar heat gains further enhancing the natural ventilation system for the class rooms.
