Congratulations to the EBSA team for their outstanding achievement in taking home the High Commended Award for the ‘Best Use of Windows & Doors: Commercial – Over 50K’ for Avantra Residences, Mascot and the ‘Best Trade Exhibition Stand’ at the recent AUSFENEX Design Awards.
Congratulations to the EBSA team for their outstanding achievement in taking home the award for Avantra Residences, Mascot in the ‘Best Use of Windows & Doors: Commercial – Over 50K’ category at the recent 2019 AWA-AGGA Queensland Awards.
EBSA supplied and installed the end pivoting LF550 louvre system delivering a glass blade span of 5200mm (each blade with concealed mullions). Thus meeting the client’s requirement to maximise the view and avoid the use of a large aluminium transom, as would have been the case with a fixed glass panel below and bi-folding windows above. The internal space was effectively transitioned into an outdoor environment providing maximum clear vision and ample natural ventilation.
EBSA have successfully completed a number of projects directly for the Crown Group as well as the incredible Arc by Crown (built by Hutchinson) so we were genuinely excited when Crown requested that we participate in the Infinity Project.
Working collaboratively with the consultants and the facade contractor (Micos) we were able to provide a solution for the operation of the glass louvres in the common spaces. Paramount to the operation of the louvres was the failsafe function in fire mode, EBSA selected the CPS-M Smoke Control Panels for this task with the added benefit of being able to offer natural ventilation functions without compromising the need for failsafe operation.
These dedicated Smoke Control panels are also able to connect directly to the BMS to provide the building manager with control of the louvres (for natural ventilation) and vital feedback on the status of the system.
Following on from the successful delivery of the Avantra Residences project, EBSA is excited to announce our exclusive partnership with Lamilux for the Australian and New Zealand markets. The Lamilux products include industry leading operable glass roof lights and hatches featuring thermally broken, fully drainable profiles able to accept double and triple glazing.
Avantra was the perfect opportunity to showcase the PR60 Operable Glass Roof Hatches in conjunction with our range of D+H Mechatronic Smoke Control Panels (340+) and Window Actuators (780+) in over 320 individual apartments.
EBSA proudly delivered one of the largest installations of window actuators, smoke control panels and roof mounted smoke hatches in Australia.

Athletes and visitors to the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre will benefit from the installation of approximately three hundred (300) glass and aluminium louvres for both ventilation and smoke control protection.
Commercial louvre/window-design and automation specialist, EBSA, is a family business based in Brisbane that was selected by builder, Hansen Yuncken, to install this technology.
One of the most important features of the EBSA architectural glass louvres is their capacity to provide an excellent ventilation system and more importantly, to form an integral part of a commercial smoke exhaust system.
Visitors to the Carrara Sports and Leisure Precinct on the Gold Coast may not realise it, but they will be protected against the dangers created by smoke in the event of a fie by world-class window louvre technology provided by EBSA Pty Ltd.
EBSA is a commercial window louvre specialist, installing the latest louvre technology which combines natural light and ventilation with automated window systems to help create energy efficientand sustainable buildings, including smoke exhaust systems. EBSA was selected by builder, Hansen Yuncken, to install this louvre technology at the Carrara Sports and Leisure Precinct.
WMK Architecture and a team of consultants have met an ambitious challenge set by a school principal to reinvent the traditional education building design and, in the process, created a highly sophisticated mixed-mode building ventilation strategy.
Stephen Harris, principal of The Northern Beaches Christian School (NBCS) in Sydney, has led the vision for the school's new building works since day dot, requesting from the very beginning that the architect's concept for their new admin, science and student services building align with the school's collaborative and innovative learning paradigm.
Hazel Glen Child and Family Centre uses a vibrant patchwork of glazed bricks, along with various timbers to create a welcoming family centre.
This state-of-the-art building consists of four childcare rooms, maternal and child health consulting suites, various sized community rooms and a central flexible community gathering space. Located in the heart of the Plenty River Valley, the centre references the winding Plenty River in its meandering walls and verandah lines and with metaphorical flows and eddies through the central space, while the roofline responds to the horizon line of the distant Kinglake Ranges.
The Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland makes a significant shift from thinking of buildings as consumers of resources to being contributors to the regeneration of the ecological and social environment. The building is designed to work with the natural environment and will operate as a zero energy and zero carbon work place.
The GCI building is not only an exemplar of sustainable practice but is home to research and collaboration into the issues around global change and their impacts on the planet. It has also provided a valuable research tool for innovative building systems and the understanding of adaptive comfort conditions in a naturally ventilated sub tropical environment.
EBSA are installing new CPS-M control panel and new CDC020 awining actuators for SMOKE Control.
Louvres were especially developed for this project and will be installed into both towers.
EBSA have installed and glazed the louvres into the curtain wall panels offsite, the completed curtain wall panels were then installed into the façade of the building.
This is the second successful project where EBSA has installed double glazed louvres into the curtain wall offsite and it showcases the expertise within our company. Our previous project delivered in this manner was 177 Pacific Highway (north Sydney) for Leightons.
Client wanted something special with very wide spans (approx 2000mm) and large blades.
The western façade glass screen is a dual skin façade consisting of automated external louvres that provide solar control from the afternoon west sun. The glass louvres by EBSA Mechanical (Queensland) are laminated glass with a ceramic frit coating forming a graphic pattern.
