Five SolaGlide retractable roofs from Libart were installed on the hit television series, The Block in a retail shop application as protection against rain showers and extreme sunny weather.
The installation in Prahran, Melbourne was part of the Glasshouse series for The Block and included one retractable roof measuring 7.85m S X 5.35m W and four roofs measuring 2.2m S X 4.1m W.
The larger roof in the atrium area in the foyer to the apartments features the large sliding skylight from Libart. When open, the skylight allows light to spill spectacularly into the atrium and garden area, enabling the plants underneath to thrive. The four smaller opening roofs protect the retail shops including The Block Café.
All the retractable roofs feature 16mm Solar Control Grey glazing.
