Hi-Line Rooftop Bar by IMPERTEK


At the Hi-Line Rooftop Bar, in the Crown Resort in Perth, Australia, Balance pedestals by Impertek support over 600 sq.m of ultra-luxury flooring. Crown Resorts operates some of the world’s most modern and chic luxury hotel complexes - complete with casino, spa and various types of entertainment – including the Crown Melbourne, Crown Sydney and Crown Perth in Australia, and Crown Aspinnalls in London. The Crown Resort in Perth opened in 1985, and across the three hotels that make up the complex - the Crown Metropol, Crown Towers and Crown Promenade - it now has almost 6,000 employees and manages over 2,500 gaming machines and 1,000 accommodation units, spanning bedrooms, suites and villas. The complex boasts a golf course, an international convention centre and a 2,300-seat theatre, as well as gaming salons, a spa, resort pools and a wide range of restaurants, bars, night-clubs and luxury stores. One of the jewels of this sumptuous resort is the Hi-Line Rooftop Bar, built on a terrace above the Crown Theatre, along the walkway that connects the three hotels to the casino. The terrace affords a magnificent view of the skyline of the central business district and the heart of the city, not to mention the Swan River and the Burswood Peninsula, from which you can see the brand-new, 60,000-seat Optus Stadium. The Hi-Line Rooftop Bar represents the pinnacle of relaxation, where guests from the hotels and gaming salons can enjoy the chic, spacious feel of an open-air venue furnished in a modern, welcoming style, and a young, informal environment offering cocktails and bar bites. Wood and metal structures painted white or black; simple, geometric shapes, and stools and armchairs lit by rows of LED lights alternate with evergreen plants and parasols. The flooring, consisting of dark and light grey ceramic tiles in size 60x60 cm, covers over 600 sq.m and is raised above the sub-floor by means of 2,300 Balance adjustable pedestals with selflevelling head and heights ranging from 47 to 112 mm. Forming part of the Impertek Pedestal line, these supports are equipped with the essential installation accessories. In addition to the Balance self-levelling head, which automatically compensates for the slope of the ground by up to 5%, the Pedestal line includes pedestals with heads fitted with special tabs for stone flooring, and pedestals with heads designed for decking, CP gradient correctors and Impertek’s latest product - the new Clips for creating perfect steps and vertical joints.
