Star City Covered By SeaShell

Like it or not many people enjoy a cigarette when either drinking or gambling. Star City Casino has created a stunning outdoor poker machine area, but needed to protect patrons and gaming machines from wind blown rain and sun. The Seashell Awning came to the rescue.

Star City was initially presented with the challenge of quickly covering an area of around 90 square metres over a balcony area immediately adjacent to its covered outdoor gaming area. Project manager at Star City, Darren Davison commented that "we searched for a suitable awning product that both complimented the modern architecture of Star City and was strong, durable, weatherproof and quick to implement". Darren commented that "other awnings of that size were either not sufficiently durable given the brisk sea breezes that we can encounter, as well as requiring months to deliver and install". Three SeaShell Awnings were installed, all in a 180 degree semi-circle configuration and were fixed to a curved concrete lintel above. "being fixed to the wall at a single point, there was no need for supporting structures to disrupt the outdoor area", commented Darren.

The SeaShell Awning is certified to W50 under Australian Standard AS4055-1992, and can withstand gale force winds greater than 65 kmh. In even higher winds the SeaShell Awning quickly self retracts to protect itself from damage. Darren Davison also went on to say that "I was up against a deadline and struggled to find the right solution. The people at Seashell were able to measure, manufacture and install three large awnings in less than 7 days - the awnings look great - everybody is impressed".

The SeaShell Awning was designed in Australia and is patented world-wide. Seashell Awnings are manufactured to order in a variety of sizes, shape configurations and colours.
