The client required a way of separating their temperature-controlled barrel hall into 3 sections. Full insulation wasn’t required, but they wanted to prevent unrestricted air movement between the sections which each had its own temperature-control equipment.
The barrel hall is effectively a temperature-controlled stock warehouse, so the client required the ability to move and stack the stock around the warehouse in an unrestricted fashion. As such, the blinds needed to span the full width of the barrel hall, and also have the ability to retract right to the ceiling. Splitting the blinds into 2 was not an option as this would have introduced unacceptable side channels.
As with any vineyard, the look can sometimes be as important as the end product, so the client was keen to ensure that the solution looked smart and was in keeping with the overall design of the manufacturing facility and brand.
