ALSPEC supplied high performance acoustic window and door framing products to Meriton Suites in North Sydney NSW to ensure a quiet and peaceful stay for guests.

Located on Arthur Street just metres from one of Australia’s busiest roads, the new 29-storey hotel designed by Tony Caro Architects features purposefully selected acoustic glazing products from Alspec’s high performance range. The adjacent Warringah Freeway is the key access route to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Tunnel, with thousands of vehicles using the road each day.

The building designers worked closely with Alspec’s expert team to ensure optimum acoustic performance and minimise potential noise exposure for the comfort of visitors.

In addition to acoustic performance, the designers also wanted to maximise the experience for guests by providing large window openings and balcony doors that would allow them to enjoy the expansive surrounding views of Sydney Harbour and the Lower North Shore.

Alspec systems installed at Meriton Suites included the ProGlide/Altitude acoustic sliding doors to provide the level of acoustic performance required for this application. Recommended for floor-to-ceiling applications, the heavy duty, high performance sliding door system provides exceptional all-weather performance.

To maximise the iconic Sydney Harbour views for guests, Alspec supplied window framing products selected from the Hunter Evo flush glazed framing system. The Hunter Evo 150mm acoustic framing is an architectural grade aluminium framing product specifically designed to address acoustic considerations. This window framing product has exceptional sound-reducing properties, high strength from the design of the mullions (vertical frame elements) and excellent weathering performance.

Additionally, ProTilt high performance awning and casement windows were selected for openable window requirements. With their ability to accommodate glass up to 28mm, and featuring multi-point locking options, the ProTilt windows enhance acoustic performance in hotel and commercial applications. The windows worked seamlessly with the Hunter Evo framing products to deliver an integrated glazing solution for the building.

Thanks to Alspec’s door and window framing products, this well-insulated hotel provides guests a welcoming and peaceful refuge to relax and unwind.

Alspec products used at Meriton Suites included ProGlide high performance sliding doors, Altitude apartment sliding doors, Hawkesbury commercial multi-fold doors, Swan 45mm commercial doors, Hunter Evo 101.6mm single flush glazed framing, Hunter Evo 150mm single flush glazed framing, Hunter Evo 150mm acoustic framing, ecoWALL 225, ProTilt high performance awning/casement windows - single glazed, and fixed louvres.
