SPECIAL PROJECTS 4

The Dome (The Trafford Centre) Manchester

The client requirement was to create an office and new boardroom beneath a glass dome, in which the Chairman would be based.

Consequently, we supplied 12 blinds for the dome, plus one for the glass stairwell. Not only are the blinds shaped, but also follow the curve of the windows.

Each of the blinds is 100% blackout and elevates from bottom to top, rising from a hidden shelf.

The blinds operate in groups of three to track the sun. They also work as a group of 13 for total blackout.

For acoustics reasons, the motors operating the blinds are hidden more than three metres above the blinds. They produce no measurable noise level when operating.

The fabric we used for the blinds was Mermet Flocke, chosen for its soft look, tensile strength and acoustic value.

This was a flagship project for IBS; and one from which we take a certain satisfaction.


If you have a Special Project that is being watered down in design terms, on the grounds that it might be too difficult to achieve, why not give us a call?

We'll quickly let you have an expert, but unbiased opinion on how the project can be achieved. You'll also receive a cost calculation that will be hard and fast.

We are waiting for your call.
