High Tides and Grate Vibes at Kirra Beach

Kirra Surf Life Saving Club on the Gold Coast is the second oldest club in Queensland and has over 100 years of rich history. Located right on the beach at North Kirra with awesome northerly views to Surfers Paradise you can enjoy a drink and a meal on the expansive deck overlooking the ocean. Lauxes grates were the perfect solution for the recent North Kirra Surf Club upgrades by Clark Construction Group. Made from anodized aluminum (making them corrosion-free) and with a lifetime rustproof warranty, they are perfect for commercial projects.

Anodised Aluminium

Over the past 12 months significant work and investment has gone into the refurbishment of the supporters club bathroom renovations and including the opening of the new Café, NK Kitchen. 

Due to the Surf Club’s close proximity to the sea you can enjoy year-round panoramic views, cooling breezes and the relaxing sound of waves. But one disadvantage of a waterfront location is the higher risk of metal furniture and appliances being vulnerable to rust and requiring more maintenance. It is for this reason our Slimline Tile Insert (STI) linear drainage system was ideally chosen for the bathroom renovations. Lauxes grates are made from triple-bath anodized aluminum making them resistant to corrosion and abrasions. Durable, affordable, and stylish, all grates come with a lifetime rustproof warranty, ensuring the grates are the suitable drainage solution for many years to come. 

“We needed an easy solution to install drainage in a multiple-stall bathroom. And one that can be used near the beach without rusting over time, so Lauxes was definitely our go-to.

–Jared Clark of Clark Construction Group Pty Ltd

To help handle heavy traffic flow from club members and supporters, a modern yet practical solution to the bathroom interiors was needed. Due to the easy customization of the STI Lauxes grates, one long wall-to-wall linear drain could be created connecting the multiple showers running along the length of the room.  This not only frees up valuable space, drawing water and puddles away, but it makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze with its easy roll-out feature! Naturally timeless, the soft cool grayish-brown floor and wall tiles make the showers feel calming and classic, and paired with a soft neutral palette it perfectly creates a traditional color scheme that still feels fresh, modern, and new!
