The long, narrow shape of each rooflight In the Founders Hall means that they measures just 1m wide but are 35m long. There was a further requirement for the retracted blinds to be imperceptible from floor level.
SHY built special headboxes in pine faced ply and used pine timber supports for the side channels so the blinds blended into their surroundings when not in use.
Each rooflight was covered by two pairs of Fabric Tension System (FTS) blinds with each pair designed to neatly meet over a structural beam.The blinds were operated using a multi-channel radio handset so each bay could be controlled independently.
