Refurbishing the external balustrades on a 16-storey resort is no mean feat, but this is exactly what Cooltone were faced with at the RACV’s Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
The client had identified that the safety film on the balustrades was deteriorating and needed to be replaced, which had to be achieved without impacting on the spectacular views.
Cooltone chose to strip the existing film and replace it with ArmorgardTM C90 100 micron clear Safety Film, in order to maintain the safety levels in each of the 192 units.
The project had some big hurdles, such as a 12-month installation period so the resort could keep trading. Each floor was vacated one at a time for a short period, meaning that Cooltone’s coordination with the builder needed to be precise.
The height of the building and the external nature of the job meant that work had to be carried out early in the morning, to avoid problems with wind, and periods of bad weather slowed the installation.
Despite these challenges, Cooltone met the 12-month deadline and Royal Pines Resort could rest easy in the knowledge that their balustrades were up to scratch.
