Requirement and Specification 

The 1500sqm, 36 bed unit required corner and wall protection, including bed bumpers, corner guards and handrails. In addition, the ward had been designed with seismic gaps, to enable movement to occur, with limited repair required. Balco anodized covers were selected by the architects.

Outcome

Installation was done by our certified installer, Specialist Architectural Installations Ltd, in a tight time frame, with a result that has delighted the client and contractors.
