Retractable Sunroof, Varioscreens Bendigo Hospital

Varioscreen retractable roof systems have been installed as an innovative automated external solar shading solution for the atrium of the St John of God Hospital in Bendigo, Victoria.

Fourteen Varioscreen retractable sunroof systems were installed at the hospital to deliver maximum possible reduction in solar heat and glare.
The Helio 100 Aura perforated fabric was chosen which allows for light penetration while shading the area. Depending on the fabric specified, an automated external shading solution such as the European-designed Varioscreen retractable roof system can reduce energy transmission by up to 85%.
