Bennelong Apartments [The Toaster Building]
The BENNELONG APARTMENTS, commonly referred to as The Toaster Building, is one of Sydney’s most iconic and instantaneously recognised complexes. Consisting of three individual buildings, the complex required high quality blinds, which could be used to maintain the privacy of the tenants, whilst still allowing them to enjoy the vibrant day views and vivid lights of the night life that can be seen from the building.
To have dual benefits of personal privacy, as well being able to enjoy the spectacular and vibrant views of Sydney Harbour. Whilst protecting internal furnishings and floor coverings from the harsh UV rays of the North-Western sun. The unique harbour front aspect, required a specialised product to meet the requirements.

The unique properties of SilverScreen 205 with its 4% openness and 6% VLT, offers an unparallelled view through to this breath taking scene. SilverScreen 205 Performance provides a very high 77% solar reflectance. Additionally, to fulfil the client’s main concern – the 5% UV control completed the solution for this building.
