A colourful, wide-screen solution for academic excellence
Farnborough Hill is a private girls school dedicated to educating pupils to a high academic standard, whilst nurturing their personal, social and spiritual development. When the school wanted to extend the existing historic building Stansons was called in to provide a total shading solution with a colorful twist.
A sympathetic, seamless shading solution required
Feltham Construction created the extensions that surrounded the original Victorian structure with the emphasis on sympathetic brickwork and large glazed areas. These windows required blackout roller blinds to the widest spans possible with minimal joins. The blind fabric also had to match the red rhododendron bushes that were to be planted as a feature of the green that surrounded the school.
The Stansons Solution
Stansons’ Armour HD roller blinds were used throughout. The selected extra-wide textile enabled fabric joins to be kept to a minimum. A perfect match to the colour of the rhododendrons was easily found in Stansons’ comprehensive colour range. All blinds were installed on a custom back bar fixing profile to ensure a totally secure fix to the substrate. This back bar was then custom painted to match the windows, enabling it to blend in with the frames and the interior.
A shading solution to help stimulate young minds
Farnbourgh Hill now has a school that has been extended to meet their 21st century standards of educational excellence thanks in part to Stansons’ wide-span roller blinds. These add a colourful modern accent to the exterior whilst creating an optimal daylighting and shading solution for the interior.
