Sail on over to the spectacular Manly Skiff Sailing Club where a water’s edge view of Manly is framed by beautiful Elevate™ bi-fold doors.
The Manly Skiff Sailing Club is situated in Manly Cove, the ideal location for a seafood platter by the water. The brief given was to extend the existing clubrooms opening onto the harbour foreshore. This would ultimately make the venue more desirable for special events as it would give the venue highly regarded natural light and a lot more space.The architect, Simon Burgess from Sutech and the builder Fluid Building, had some considerations that needed to be accounted for due to its proximity to the water. High wind and water ratings needed to be considered when specifying aluminium windows and doors along with finish durability.
Elevate™ Series 411 bi-fold doors were chosen to completely showcase the view of the harbour. The bi-fold doors were installed behind a glass balustrade. Bi-fold door panels protrude into the outdoor space 411 bi-fold doors were chosen to completely showcase the view of the harbour. The bi-fold doors were installed behind a glass balustrade. Bi-fold door panels protrude into the outdoor space so that from the water, the bi-fold doors look as though they are floating in the air. From the inside, customers can’t see any door tracks; it gives the illusion that they are also floating on water.
This product has been successfully tested to resist 450Pa water and is suitable for air-conditioned buildings, making it an ideal product choice for this demanding costal application.
Series 400 102mm CentreGLAZE™ Commercial Framing was also used. It has been tested to resist 600Pa maximum water and was similarly suited to the application.
