Hang it all! – Another Hydestor Solution


Company: Hydestor

The relocation of the Sarjeant Art Gallery’s entire collection to its interim location in Taupo Quay, is part of the larger 5-10 year development project to strengthen the original gallery.

Due to its proven stability under seismic conditions, the mobile shelving designed by Hydestor was fundamental in ensuring all the current storage requirements by the Sarjeant Art Gallery were in place. In years to come when it becomes necessary to relocate the collection back to the strenghtened gallery the units can then be reconfigured to suit the new space.

Shona MacKay of Hydestor worked closely with the Architect representing the Gallery, to guarantee that the valuable collection was housed in the most efficient manner.

Bearing in mind the vast quantity of Horizontal and Vertical storage which was required, this was included when designing the specialised S100 mobile storage unit for the huge art collection.

The grid hanging systems incorporates a steel reinforced grid through the centre of their steel posts, which when powdercoated creates an attractive aesthetic without detracting from the structural integrity.

The integrated grid system allows for framed artworks to be stacked in groups according to their size and genre, without compromising vertical space.

This newly designed storage system works well for the staff who have found the system effortless to move when positioning and relocating framed works which need to be easily and safely secured into place.

The Atlantis Method

Atlantis 1

Company: Atlantis

The most important part of a tiled shower is the part that’s hidden….starting with the shower base.

The Atlantis method is all about making tiled shower construction easier, safer and problem-free.

In the past, building a tiled shower has been anything but easy. The traditional method of forming and screeding a shower floor is a job that can take days, needs a skilled tradesperson and comes with considerable risks.

By combining the critical steps into a pre-finished system, Atlantis has taken away the hard work and eliminated the dangers of building a tiled shower.

Our components form a complete capsule to retain water within the shower. It’s why Atlantis showers are so easy to install, why they’re leak-free, and also why they’re so durable.

The Atlantis shower system includes the ready-to-tile shower base (already 100% waterproof), waste, essential waterproofing connections, glazing channels and screens, as well as the necessary fitting materials. Everything’s included – except tiles, tile adhesives and tapware – leaving you with the freedom to create whatever look you desire.

An Atlantis tiled shower brings design and placement freedom as never before. It’s equally home upstairs or down, corner-fitted or wall-side, with floor-level entry, recessed into a concrete floor, or with a variety of hob styles.

And, worth emphasising, there’s peace of mind knowing that every Atlantis tile-over shower base has the unrivalled 25-year leak-free warranty.
