Outdoor Blind for Indooroopilly Shopping Centre QLD

A new strip of restaurants was part of the recent major redevelopment of the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre in QLD. The five new restaurants along the footpath faced directly into the Sun from mid morning till late afternoon, so Helioscreen systems were utilised to provide shading for the outdoor alfresco area and diners.  Being oversized blinds at an impressive 5m wide x  4m high, they were too large for a normal external blind system, so Helioscreen were were involved to custom build oversized blinds. To do this, Helioscreen manufactured a system combining a tension system ( power-spring mechanism in the roller tube ), used in our Varioscreen and Variopergola systems and our oversizes HM130 Roller Blind system. The fabric selected by the project architects was Helio 86 ( Colour Iron ), and the system was powder coated in a commercial quality Interpon Ultriva Matt finish ( Anodic Natural ). Automatic wind Sensors were installed to automatically retract blinds in case of strong winds as the area is quite exposed up on a hill, and each restaurant operates their own blind with their own remote control.
