Natural light, fresh air and a sense of space are key attributes of modern building architecture and louvre windows are recognised as an effective means of delivering these.
The product of choice on many landmark projects, the MP2 has undergone a number of project-specific tests, achieving some incredible results along the way, including passing cyclone testing Part A and B at 32m/s and being the only louvre to pass the AS4284 test for a project. EBSA is thrilled to add to this impressive list with the MP2 louvre recently passing an earthquake test for a project.

A huge congratulations to AsheMorgan and DMANN Corporation on Midtown Centre receiving a 6-Star Green Star Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia. 6-Stars represents the highest standard (World Leadership) in environmentally sustainable building practices.
Designed in line with the Brisbane City Council’s “Buildings that Breathe” guidelines for a passive, subtropical design. Midtown Centre includes natural ventilation, operable windows and doors, an abundance of plants and ample outdoor space.
The intricate and innovative merging of two 20-storey structures, as opposed to the demolition and new build, saved an estimated 11,000 tonnes of carbon emissions; the equivalent of running the building fully occupied, carbon-neutral for four years.
EBSA was thrilled to be engaged by SRG Global to undertake the supply and installation of the Schneider LF550 automated single-glazed louvre system and D+H Mechatronic CPS-M control panels on this unique project; delivering natural ventilation to the building.
SRG Global’s façade division undertook the design, supply and installation of the engineered curtain wall facades for the project.

EBSA Takes Home the ‘Best Use of Windows & Doors – Commercial under $100k’ Category Award at the AGWA 2022 QLD Awards
The CPS-M SHEV control panel heralds a new dimension in safety and security technology, ensuring that the hot, rising air escapes from the building. Emergency routes are cleared of the majority of smoke within seconds, creating escape routes. In addition, extracting the heat prevents thermal stress on the building structure which can prevent the building from collapsing.
Digital, high-performance and cost-effective, the fully modular CPS-M smoke vent control panel unifies the most important requirements for modern smoke extraction systems. It vastly increases building safety standards thanks to intelligent networking and is extremely cost-efficient and flexible due to reduced line routing and its compact design.
The integration of ACB technology enables bidirectional communication between the control panel and drives. This means that the control panel also provides real-time feedback about the position and condition of the window drives. Using ACB up to 20 drives are connected to the CPS-M using just one group connector and one cable. Additionally, with the use of NSV 401, it is possible during a mains outage to continue controlling and supplying the connected motorised 230 V AC drives for up to 72 hours, ensuring a smart emergency power supply.

EBSA Awarded a Highly Recommended for ‘Excellences in Customer Relations’ at the Recent Australian Achiever Awards
EBSA is thrilled to have been awarded the D+H Atmosphere Award in the ‘Gold’ Category for the Ken Rosewall Arena project. A huge congratulation to the EBSA team, an outstanding achievement!
The Ken Rosewall Arena (KRA) is an award-winning, multipurpose arena located at The Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre. The arena, which includes seating for 10,500 guests was originally purpose-built for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.
The $50 Million upgrade, completed in 2020, transformed the arena into a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose venue suitable for all-weather conditions with the striking new cable-tension canopy roof (of approximately 8,000 m2) replacing the original perimeter-only roof.
Designed with an Australian summer and safety in mind, EBSA was engaged to deliver a system that ensures that both the players and crowds enjoy the comfort of a well-ventilated arena with a natural ventilation solution incorporating 34 x thermally broken louvres and 2 x thermally broken operable access hatch (doors) in the pop-up oculus to provide a natural ventilation and smoke relief solution for the centre.
EBSA is proud to have been involved with this exceptional project; designing and delivering a full turnkey solution with the supply and installation of the BT90 louvre system, a CPSM smoke control panel and digital ZA louvre actuators. The integration of ACB technology provides digital communication between the louvre actuators and the BMS system; a remote access gateway removes the need for a technician to visit the site, allowing real-time monitoring and functional checks of each individual drive to occur via a secure cloud server.
1 x CPS-M/60 Smoke Control Panel (1200mmm x 1000mm)
