The Star in Sydney is Australia’s second largest casino, next to Melbourne’s Crown Casino.
Overlooking Darling Harbour, The Star comprises two gaming floors, eight bars, seven restaurants, 351 hotel rooms and 130 serviced and privately owned apartments.
In 2016 the North West Gaming area was added to The Star, which featured a huge glass skylight as the roof. However, once the gaming machines were installed, management realised that the heat and glare coming through the glass was making the room unbearable. Premier Tint was given the job of fixing the situation.
The size of the roof and the logistics of the project posed a huge challenge for us. Internal application was impossible due to access being blocked by the metal structure accommodating the glass roof panels. There were also weight restrictions on the interior floor and a scissor lift was required to reach the glass. Our only option was to apply external films.
We decided to use a product from Hanita Coatings, the market leader in external films. The product we selected – the XTRM Silver 20X – was perfect for the job, with a heat rejection of 83% and glare reduction of 84%.
Our abseiling installers covered 168 glass panels (almost 500m2) in film in approximately two weeks. Most importantly, the client was amazed with
the finished product and the project was a complete success.
