Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said RCMP conducted a full examination of the scene, and recovered evidence at the scene to confirm damage is consistent with a small calibre firearm.
Damage was contained to a metal rolling shutter which covers a classroom window at the rear of the school.

O’Donaghey said police stress the shot was fired sometime over the weekend when no one was believed to be inside.

“There is no information at this time to suggest that the damage to the school was a targeted incident, nor is there any evidence or information that leads us to anticipate any further incidents,” said O’Donaghey.

“Regardless, police are treating the matter seriously, and working closely with the Central Okanagan School District.”

He said the investigation, including a canvass of the neighbourhood, is continuing.

“Police are looking for any additional information which will help them identify the individual or individuals responsible for this careless mischievous act.”

Anyone who may have heard something of interest, witnessed the incident or has any information which may assist investigators is asked to contact Const. Georgina Josefsson, school liaison officer (SLO),
with the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

Talius Somfy Motor Announcement

563 329 ryan

For over 30 years, Talius has been positioned as the leader in our industry here in North America. A significant component to this position has been our desire to partner with vendors who value quality, innovation, and service. Two of the vendors leading the tubular motor manufacturers worldwide are Elero GmbH and Somfy.

Historically, we have used Elero motors for all hardwired applications and Somfy where radio technology has been desired. Both companies continue to innovate their product lines and Elero has recently developed a new technology for their motors that replaces the technology we have become familiar with over the last 30+ years. Talius takes great pride in testing and evaluating any new products and innovations prior to promoting them to our clients in order to ensure the highest possible level of quality.

While Talius is in the testing and evaluation phase for this new product, we will be using the Somfy 400, 500, and 600 series Rapid Limit Adjustment motors on any orders where we would otherwise have utilized the Elero motor. These Somfy motors are widely known and accepted throughout our industry and have been popular with installers for decades. The only difference you will notice between the Elero and Somfy motors is the new limit setting procedures for Somfy.  Visit the Installation Instructions Page where you can download the limit setting instructions under “Somfy Standard Limit Motor Limit Setting Instructions”

Please do not hesitate to contact Talius with any questions you might have at 800.665.5550, or by email at insidesales@talius.com.
