eyrise® to provide instant solar shading at refurbished BAFTA headquarters

Date: 8 February 2021

eyrise® will provide windows to BAFTA as part of a refurbishment to increase space for its charitable programme.

After opening in the fall of 2021, eyrise© s350 will provide instant solar shading at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly, as part of a comprehensive refurbishment to improve facilities and double the building’s capacity, enabling BAFTA to dramatically increase its charitable program.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts is installing recently developed smart liquid crystal windows to glaze two restored Victorian rooflights on a newly constructed top floor at its Grade II listed headquarters in London.

The refurbishment will reveal the hidden rooflights, built in 1883, for the first time since 1975 when they were covered to create a dark space for a 227-seat cinema.

Whether we are talking about inverters, module technology or systems technology, there is no question that diversity and diversification are hot topics within the solar industry in 2021.
Thanks to laser technology, the glass industry can do something that would be almost inconceivable in any other sector.
