Flackley Ash Hotel in Rye, East Sussex were experiencing problems with glare and heat in their conservatory restaurant area. They contacted SBI and asked us to carry out an on-site survey. Lyn Peel our lead designer met with their team responsible for the project. Lyn came up with the design concepts and solutions to determine what would be the best solution to reduce glare and heat. Not wanting to make the area gloomy by blocking out daylight they decided on white semi-translucent material. Having ruled out having electric pleated blinds as they wanted to avoid maintenance. Static sail blinds were deemed the best solution as they are virtually maintenance-free.
Lyn one of our most experienced surveyors carried out an on-site consultation with the client. Lyn came up with the concept and design for sail blinds. Sail blinds create a modern stylish design for the reception area. From a practical point of view, they can be removed and cleaned in a washing machine.
Our installation team worked out off hours to complete the installation swiftly. As you can see from the pictures the installation was a complete success. The gaps between the blinds allow for dapple light. This keeps the area bright and light without the intense heat and glare. A 5-year warranty comes with the sails and Inshade manufacture them in the UK. Perfectly fitted by SBI Ltd.
SBI along with Inshade, has created a spectacular show site at Flackley Ash Hotel.
