New blinds for our friends around the corner – Crave Cafe.
3 x Clear PVC blinds and 3 x Mesh blinds.
When rolled up, these Ziptrak screens are undetectable. The Ziptrak units are mounted on the outside of the building in fully enclosed pelmet units. They are mounted above rather than inside the opening so that they can’t be seen. The vertical posts are also removable making the area fully open when the screens are up.
We’ve set up a demo-unit Retractable Pergola at our factory in Kingsland. It is also serving as our all-season outdoor tea room.
With yet another cyclone giving us a lashing we thought it would be timely to mention that we manufacture replacement Vinyl Swimming Pool Covers – protect your pool and its precious contents from the harmful effects of precipitation 😉
Ok, so usually its all about making the indoors out – in this case its quite the reverse!
The creative geniuses at GHDWoodhead creativespaces recently asked us to make a cafe-style awning over the servery window of the lunchroom at Microsoft’s NZ headquarters in the Viaduct. The result is a very relaxed outdoor feeling – inside what is very much an office building in an office park.
More at home out-of-doors, this awning is made from a light weight aluminium frame and covered in Docril UV-resistant acrylic canvas – it should prove more than capable of handling whatever the office weather or IT party animals throw at it.
The transformation continues – last week we installed a plotter that can plot onto fabrics up to 3.5m wide and 13m long…
Already done over 2km of plotting this week – excluding the obligatory calibration/test/messing about!
😀 Time for some fun! 😀 Move the slider from left to right on the image below – cool, huh? Then scroll down and watch the video! 😯
OK, so we’re quite proud of this one – everyone does rectangular/vertical blinds, easy peasy!
These blinds are triangular – oh, and they project on an angle – they’re not vertical, so we can’t rely in our friend gravity to ensure they work nicely (i.e. stay taught)
We combined every trick in the book (and some) to make these blinds work as required, and we searched from one end of the earth to the other to find a fabric that was up to the task (i.e. strong, not just in x and y dimensions, but also on the diagonal!) CLICK PLAY on the video below and see them all working in symphony – its glorious!
And, here is a gallery of photos from the project, in case you’re wanting more…
