Mirage Doors was engaged by Multiplex to supply two counterweight doors for the car park entrances to the building. The series 1500 Fully Recessed doors were designed to provide maximum clear opening height and zero external protrusion for the building, to reduce set back of the doors. These doors were custom clad to match the building cladding.
Included in the recent Chadstone Shopping Centre upgrade was a new Hoyts Cinema complex complete with Xtreme size screens, reclining seats in all cinemas, and 4K image projection.
As part of the visual impact of the new entry was a requirement to provide a closure that would provide minimal impact on the visual appeal of the complex.
Mirage Doors, provided a Series 70 grille 6600 wide x 3500 high to meet the requirements while giving high levels of security when closed.
Mirage Doors has successfully tendered and negotiated for the supply and installation of both steel and aluminium roller shutters to the new Woolworths Marketplace located in Glennmore Park NSW.
Mirage Doors working with Quasar Constructions on the project will manufacture both aluminium and steel roller shutters across the centre.
Mirage Doors were approached to install two glazed Bifolding doors to the existing glass building.
These are 4 meter x 4 meter S3000 motorised Bifold doors to provide access to move cars in and out of the main showroom. Special attention was needed to provide glass to match the 15 year old custom E-glass of the building. We achieved this with viridian E-comfort 10.38mm glass.

The Mackay project was the 26th fitout between Samways and Mirage Doors Qld. in the past three years.
