Manchester Central gets zipped up by Pentel

5 May 2014

Manchester Central, is a flexible conference, meeting and exhibition venue right in the heart of Manchester.

This iconic building has an extensive range of conference and meeting rooms and there was a requirement to provide light control blinds to the windows in these spaces.

Pentel Contracts had the perfect solution, their Astralux 4000 dim-out system complete with clever zip channels at the sides of the blinds. This technology ensures the fabric of the blind is held securely in the side channels but can freely run up and down and its an ideal solution for high use areas.

Given that the glazing was 4.5 metres in height all the blinds were motorised so the conference centre could offer its clients greater flexibility in controlling the solar shading.

This was a challenging installation as the curtain walling had no aluminium frame to which the blinds could be mechanically fixed. But as usual the experts at Pentel Contracts came up with a solution.

This is another job where Pentel’s Project Management team came into its own. The total project ran for over two years but during that time the client had one point of contact with Pentel.
