Automated blinds give building managers and property owners/developers control over building appearance and expenses. The automation of blinds provides the following benefits:
Control over the buildings external appearance
The exterior appearance of a building is critically important to the prestige and rentability of space. By automating the blinds, stakeholders control the external appearance of the windows to a large degree.
Control over the cost of heating and cooling
It has been well established that semi-transparent blinds improve occupant comfort whilst allowing vision out. In summer blinds provide shading of both glare and solar radiation. In winter blinds provide both glare reduction and assists with insulation against heat loss. Automated management of blinds reduces Air-Conditioning electrical costs, reducing CO2 emissions, and provide a better working environment.
Automation Technology and the Environment
KWA is Australia’s leading fit-out company for Blind Automation Systems. KWA is able to integrate all aspects of the blind facade control with existing and new building management systems. Our management software can collect data about the operation of blinds and report this back to Building Managers, Property owners and Developes. This can also assist with improving Nabers ratings on buildings. NABERS is a national rating system that measures the environmental performance of Australian buildings.
