When Hurricane’s Grill and Bar opened at Darling Harbour, one of Sydney’s famous waterside destinations, having that all-important ‘street appeal’ in order to lure customers inside was essential.

As such, DORMA Glas’ Horizontal Sliding Wall (HSW) stacking system has been installed and provides a modern and attractive partitioning solution while also fulfilling the restaurant’s multi-faceted needs.

The positioning of the glass sliding wall system, which spans the full 13m façade of this popular steak restaurant, changes to suit circumstances throughout the day.

From early morning, Hurricane’s serves takeaway coffee from the side of its premises, and therefore only opens up one section of the restaurant. At lunchtime and evenings it offers a fully licensed bar and restaurant service; hence the walls are fully opened and stacked neatly away.

The greatest benefit of the HSW stacking system from, DORMA Glas, is its aesthetics. The clean look and open feel draws passing trade inside.

One of the design stipulations for businesses located inside the Harbourside complex, which houses many quality stores and eateries, is that frameless glass is used wherever possible, making DORMA the natural choice.
