Allplastics Engineering fabricated a number of cylinders for a shopping centre in Bateau Bay, New South Wales. The cylinders were used by Mainbrace Constructions to create a feature wall for the parents’ room at the shopping centre.

Designing parents’ rooms in shopping centres can be challenging as the environment needs to be bright and colourful while the construction needs to be sufficiently robust to overcome the energetic behaviour of toddlers and also maintain a safe environment for children of varying ages.

Approached by Mainbrace Constructions to fabricate a range of cylinders of different diameters for the shopping centre on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Allplastics chose white opaque acrylic for the cylinder and a 20mm white acrylic collar to secure the cylinder to the front of the dividing wall, while the opposite end was sealed with an unbreakable clear polycarbonate disc allowing clear vision inside the cylinder.

The cylinders were supported by a number of CNC routered MDF panels, which cradled the white acrylic cylinders across the wall dividing the parents’ room.

Daniel Saggus from Mainbrace said that their customer was very pleased with the outcome and added that Allplastics managed to offer a number of solutions and deliver the fabricated cylinders within a tight deadline.
