Altro’s Sliding Door Systems for Specialist Disability Accommodation
At Altro Building Systems, we specialise in state-of-the-art sliding door and cavity door systems. Our products use advanced, Swiss engineering and the highest-quality materials, from smoked glass to satin stainless steel, to create unique entryways that are as practical as they are aesthetically pleasing. Our commitment to providing our customers top-tier architectural solutions with unparalleled customer service has made us the supplier of choice for some of Australia’s most ground-breaking recent architectural achievements.
We are also dedicated to offering solutions that are suitable for those living with disability. Our range of cavity sliders, stacking doors, and other entryway systems can be fully customised to meet the rigorous standards for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) as set out by the NDIS.
Altro’s Approach to Accessibility
Our extensive experience on a diverse array of architectural developments throughout Australia has taught us that no two buildings are alike, and we strive to create solutions that are uniquely suited to the needs of each project. The necessity of producing custom solutions that will enhance the functionality and liveability of a given space is even more pressing when we consider structures that will need to accommodate people with a disability.
Some buildings are specifically designed to cater for the “extreme functional impairment or very high support needs” of the inhabitants. The SDA standards are built around four design categories:
- Improved liveability
- Fully accessible
- High physical support
Our Work on 380 Melbourne
While SDA spaces are built especially for people with a disability, all new buildings must adhere to general guidelines prescribing the minimum features for accessibility. At Altro Building Solutions, we take the utmost care in upholding these principles. By ensuring that all people have access to the same spaces, we help to enable opportunities for social and economic participation. We believe that everyone has the right to a fair go, and we endeavour to create spaces that reflect that equality.
One of our most exciting recent projects has been 380 Melbourne. Positioned at the heart of Victoria’s vibrant capital, this upcoming complex comprises residential apartments, a boutique hotel, and ground-floor retail along with a host of other amenities. This 67-level skyscraper will stand 217.5 metres tall.
The living spaces of 380 Melbourne are characterised by clean, modernist design principles with a focus on open living spaces and high-quality materials. The entryways we created work to support this approach by being as unobtrusive as possible while maximising the available space.
The door systems selected for this project were the Euro Cav Cavity Sliders and Euro Jamb Single Rebate. Featuring high-quality European tracks and carriage headwear, these doors provide excellent space efficiency and durability.
All the door systems featured in 380 Melbourne are able to be customised to provide for the needs of those with a disability, meaning that no one is excluded from the opportunity to enjoy the many offerings of this unique development.
