Blog - Altro : Architectural Building Systems Internal and Cavity Sliding Doors
Australia 108 – Southbank
Developer: World Class Land
Builder: Brookfield Multiplex
Architect: Fender Katsalidis
Australia 108 is a highly sculptural residential tower unlike any other in Australia. Its slender form is highlighted at the Cloud Residences levels by a golden starburst expression and then morphs into a curvaceous profile against the sky. The starburst which contains the resident facilities is inspired by the Commonwealth Star on the Australian flag and is an obvious celebration of the sense of community within the building.
Altro Building Systems have been awarded the contract to supply all cavity sliders and doors to this iconic project. Euro Cav Ultima cavity sliders were voted in by the development, architectural and building team for its durability and innovative carriage system concept developed by Swiss engineers. The Altro Swiss carriage system specially developed for the Euro Cav Ultima cavity sliding door system has a unique installation advantage enabling the door to be installed inside the cavity slider in half the amount of time of any other cavity sliding door system. It is also extremely serviceable due to the door being removed just as easily as the installation process. A soft closing function can also be installed or even retro fitted at a later stage. All flush panel doors are also being supplied to suit, complete with cutouts for concealed carriages and floor guides.
