Marina Bay Sands Hotel
Control systems for interior blind and curtain automation
Marina Bay Sands Hotel is the largest and most impressive resort in Asia, designed by architect Moshe Safdie alongside Singapore’s docks. The three striking 55-floor tower blocks house 2,560 luxury rooms, and are topped by the famous "boat", where the Sands Sky Park with tropical gardens, an observatory and the world's largest infinity swimming pool, all 200 m from the ground, create one of the most amazing hotel rooftop in the world.
In order to protect the hotel’s rooms from the sun, various configurations of indoor curtains and blinds were installed: classical double curtain tracks in the individual rooms, and roller blinds in other areas of the building. For the control of the curtain tracks’ automation, it was decided to rely on Nice and to use the award-winning NiceWay modular transmitters. Nice Mindy TT1N devices were provided for concealed, pass-through installation to control each individual curtain track, and over 1,200 wall-mounted control modules were installed to manage the curtains’ movement simply and elegantly. Out of the various colours available, the square aluminium wall plate was chosen in order to fit best in the hotel rooms. Thanks to the NiceWay transmitters’ self-learning feature, setting the transmitters was particularly easy and quick.
