Here at Sun-X, we don't consider any job too big, too small, or in this case, too old. For the past year, we've been working on this prestigious project.
The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich has delighted visitors for the past 300 years. So we were
honoured to be able to work on such an impressive and historical piece of architecture.
It was a grand project and required us to manufacture
an install fixed blinds to over 50 large arch windows. We hung them from large, bespoke aluminium frames, hand-rolled to match the shape of each individual
window, the highest of which were 30 metres above floor level and the largest window sitting at 3m x 6m.
Specialist access was not planned to be made available for another 30 years! This meant all materials and fixings we used had to be secure, rust proof and durable. We used aluminium and stainless steel with a fibreglass / PVC fabric to ensure dimensional stability and filter out over 90% of the UV and Visible light, protecting the restored painted surfaces from sun damage. The dark fabric colour ensures its visual impact is negligible from both inside and outside, maintaining an excellent clarity of through-vision to the exterior.
