Shop Door System

Location: Rouse Hill, NSW

Budget: approx: $200k

Scope: Design, supply and install hydraulic system for tilting shopping centre doors


When Bovis Lend Lease wanted an open food court precinct within their award-winning Rouse Hill Town Centre project, a feature of the design was that each shop-front would be a tilting wood-paneled wall. The huge heavy walls are tilted up when the shops are open and can be securely closed outside of trading hours.
To enable this, Stenmar Group installed two large hydraulic cylinders on each shop and a hydraulic power unit & custom control circuit in a nearby plant room.
