Innovative solutions from Hunter Douglas Architectural Products Australia have been leveraged to enhance a range of ground-breaking projects across the country.
Perth Airport’s Qantas Terminal 4, Westfield Chatswood (NSW) and Mirvac’s new Harold Park residential redevelopment (NSW) have all harnessed solutions from Hunter Douglas Architectural Products to achieve leading edge outcomes, Wolfgang Hemmer, Hunter Douglas Commercial General Manager – Australia & New Zealand, confirmed.
“The designing architect of the refurbishment of Qantas Terminal 4 at Perth Airport specified the Luxalon 84B ceiling solution in Polar White to follow the curved contour of the development’s substructure. The ability to curve and contour Luxalon linear ceilings has made the range a firm favourite with architects and designers,” said Hemmer.
For the Westfield Chatswood extension, the company supplied large quantities of its Luxalon Linear Ceiling 130B in a woodgrain finish, ‘Curly Birch’, with curved carrier rails, and Luxalon V100 and V200 in Monument, curved to meet six different radii.
Meanwhile, for the Mirvac Harold Park redevelopment, in Glebe, set to be “a vibrant residential precinct in Sydney’s inner west,” Hunter Douglas used its single skin facade system to provide a Luxalon cladding solution, with MPF200 (Multipanel) profile. MPF 200, 300 and 400 is a system with a grooved extruded facade beam, fixing brackets and cladding profiles of up to 6.5 m.
The concept of ‘innovation through design’ was a core philosophy driving Hunter Douglas’ strong global profile in architectural ceilings, facade cladding and sun control profiles, Hemmer said.
“We consistently embrace new methods, materials and designs, and this strength, coupled with over 50 years’ experience in Australia, helps Hunter Douglas tackle some of the country’s unique environmental and architectural challenges.”
“Working in partnership with the building and design community, Hunter Douglas is helping breathe new life into some of the most high-profile and exciting buildings in the country. And as a worldwide leader with operations in over 80 countries, we can provide the resources to manage projects of the grandest scale.”
“Our profiles are made in Sydney from lightweight aluminum or steel, and protected by our own HD Color-Cote coating process. These provide effective acoustic performance, and all facade profiles have undergone testing to meet Australian standards for combustibility.”
