In-Service History

Austratus is a new product innovation in response to market demand for an easier way to produce timber walls and suspended ceilings. Recently installed for Coronis real estate head office as they needed an office that was sure to impress. Their design for timber screening in the reception area was already in place. They just needed to find the right product to fit. Their builder recommended Austratus for its light, easy installation. Their choice of bright and light Hemlock in a beachy Coca Sands finish adds a comfortable, natural feel to the office. The all-in one system made installation a breeze and fitted right into their specified design, no alterations needed.
