Case Study : Pile + Friction Stays (New Zealand)

Posted on 9/12/2013

The Cloud, Queen’s Wharf, Auckland

Framerite Installations manufactured the aluminium joinery on The Cloud multipurpose event venue located on Queen’s Wharf on the Auckland waterfront, they specified Schlegel products due to their outstanding  performance.

The construction of the $9.8million The Cloud event venue had to be to the highest specification, a centrepiece for hosting, every aspect had to be installed and finished correctly.

Ted Hutchison from Framerite explained:

“We always use Schlegel stainless steel friction stays because we can count on them to perform as required, they work consistently well under all conditions. In this environment, at the edge of Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour, we couldn’t take the chance of anything not performing and so we used their PB69 series Pile and Finseal weatherseals also.”

Schlegel BP10HD, BP16HD and BP22HD friction stays offer outstanding performance, guaranteeing long-lasting smooth operation. The stays are manufactured from a combination of high quality 304 grade stainless steel and nylon components offering improved durability.

Schlegel Polybond Woolpile and Polybond Finseal weatherseals were specified to ensure superior weather resistance, energy efficiency, acoustic performance and guard against dust, sand and insects. Manufactured from polypropylene, the pile yarns are siliconised to repel water, the perfect product for The Cloud’s waterfront location.
