To ensure that the benefits of glass in buildings are not compromised in residential spaces, certain considerations should be taken into account when specifying window covering; maintaining view through, fading fabrics and space saving through heat reduction.
Download the whitepaper to find out how specifying high-quality performance fabrics can have a positive impact on design by combatting the issues that come with utilising glass in buildings.
In a bid to counteract the negative aspects of glazing which is subject to excess heat and UV radiation, performance fabrics – specifically when used in window coverings – provide functional qualities such as durability, UV protection, comfort and thermo-regulation.
Download this whitepaper to find out how specifying high-quality performance fabrics can have a positive impact on design by combatting the issues that come with utilising glass in buildings.
As temperatures rise across the country, designers and specifiers must identify solutions that deliver energy-efficient thermal comfort all year round. Leading retractable wide-span models offer even greater advantages in terms of design flexibility and aesthetic value.
Download this whitepaper to see how retractable screens can help you create comfortable homes ideal for Australia’s unique climate.
Concern over climate change has impacted the building specification process, where designers and specifiers must take extra care to ensure they select eco-friendly building materials – like Western Red Cedar (WRC) – that not only deliver high performance and premium aesthetics, but also elevated levels of sustainability and energy efficiency.

The Australian construction industry has recently experienced significant growth and this boom has been met with a greater focus on compliance. Download this whitepaper to find out more about the NCC requirements for fire resistance and acoustics performance and learn about a new Baines Masonry tool that simplifies the process of selecting the right fully compliant products.
As the prevalence of off-grid homes continues to rise, there is an increasing need for products that can contribute to passive design. With heating and cooling accounting for a large portion of a home’s energy use, sustainable alternatives are of particular interest.
Download this whitepaper to discover how architects and designers are optimising the efficiency and effectiveness of energy for off-grid homes.
With the demand for sustainable design growing in the design and construction industry, practitioners need to identify sustainable alternatives to polluting technologies such as steel and concrete. In relation to building cladding, high quality, certified-sustainable timber is one such solution.
Download this whitepaper to see why timber building products may be the key to low carbon construction.
The Australian construction industry is one of the world’s highest consumers of steel. Under increased pressure to find cost effective, high performance building products, designers and specifiers need to be aware of the benefits of galvanised steel and how powder coating technologies can further enhance its durability, longevity and aesthetics.
Download this whitepaper to dispel common misconceptions about powder-coated galvanised steel and learn the benefits of two-coat systems.
Through careful specification, designers and specifiers can create inclusive spaces that comply with the relevant Australian Standards and effectively address the needs of these user groups.
Download this whitepaper to see how you can leverage innovative design solutions to create safe, functional and accessible spaces for all users.
Custom kitchen design and integration has emerged as a way to maximise space and tailor kitchen spaces to the needs of today’s users.
Download this whitepaper to see how customisation and integrated tapware and water systems can open up new design possibilities for modern kitchens.
With growing demand for mental and behavioural healthcare facilities in Australia, designers and specifiers need a better understanding of this sector’s unique design challenges.
