The owner of a water front boat villa was looking for an opening roof that could also be used as a vertical privacy and security screen. Opening Roof Specialists designed, engineered and installed perhaps Australia’s first motor operable dual-purpose Eclipse Opening Roof and Security Screen System. Or, to put it simply – there is no other folding awning like this in Australia!
This was a large deck area leading out from a one room unit within walking distance from the centre of the city and the Darling Harbour precinct. The Pyrmont awning provides a breakout area that is flexible enough to provide all weather protection in summer and winter while complementing the building. As the client did not have existing plans and the are was relatively exposed to winds investigation had to be undertaken to ensure the attachment was structurally sound.
The waterfront awning appears right on the waterfront of Sydney Harbour. The owners wanted to extend their entertaining area with a quality waterfront awning that wouldn’t rust. They also stipulated the structure had to blend with the existing architecture. The Eclipe Opening Roof is made of aluminium (which doesn’t rust) and comes with a range of premium coating options to choose from.
