Neighbouring the sports precinct in Perth is the refurbished East Perth Train Station which launched a newly constructed pedestrian overpass to cope with masses of sports and event patrons.
We went and checked it out and found some Amplimesh Security Screens on display used to enclose the overpass Installed by NSSA Member, Louie’s Flyscreens. The station had to have an open airy feeling engaging the passengers with the outside world whilst still providing security to stop talls or vandals throwing objects onto the tracks/trains. A tough challenge when security is paramount. “Amplimesh product SupaScreen was chosen for the screens above the tracks to sat is several requirements within the design brief: Its excellent strength to weight ratio, Being under 500 metres from the Swan River, the use of high-tensile 316 marine grade stainless steel mesh for Increased life expectancy and reduced maintenance was a key factor for the client,” says Ryan. Managing Director of Louie’s Flyscreens.
The installed security screens ensure a strong flow of fresh air onto these walkways with maximum light and vision maintained with the use of the SupaScreen Mesh which has 156 degree viewing angle. The job highlights the demand for quality, authentic and Australian Standard approved security screens and not just residential applications, but also commercial applications.
This project won the NSSA Best Installation Commercial award at the Fenestration Australia Design Awards 2018.
