Anyone for tennis
Design and supply of the static and moveable system for a new indoor tennis courts and associated facilities.
The roof shape is not symmetrical due to the internal viewing platform, which means that following the Barrell roof shape make every blade a different length.
The Brise Soleil to the south façade is moveable with the operation controlled by the building management system (BMS), via externally mounted light sensors and wind meters – opening when the external light drops to a certain level, and vice versa. The blades will also follow the sun allowing light but but preventing glare and heat gain. The wind sensor prevents the operation in times of high wind.
The north elevation has a static Brise Soleil that visually mimics the South, but with blades set at the optimum angle to provide light whilst removing glare
As there are external tennis courts located adjacent to the Brise Soleil, the array was designed to allow tennis balls to pass through the open blades and support rails, without snagging.
All mechanism’s are retained within purpose made facia’s.
