Project Design Brief
On the ground floor, designers wanted to protect the building from the elements. In particular, a drainage system was required across the threshold of several door openings to ensure any wind-blown rain or runoff from large downpours would not enter the building. With close proximity to the salt-water environment, all materials needed to be durable and grates also were required to be pedestrian friendly and slip resistant.
- Channel made from Grade 316 stainless steel for enhanced durability
- The stainless grate meets wheelchair safety requirements to AS 1428.2 and P4, slip resistance to AS 4586
