Factory Fit has been a part of the Gold Coast community for 16 years and assisting people in their time of need is very important to us. There’s no greater feeling than making people who are vulnerable feel secure in their home, so we were honoured and proud to be asked to install the security screening for a women’s shelter on the Gold Coast on behalf of DVConnect.
DVConnect is a crisis hotline for people in Queensland affected by domestic or family violence and helps women with children who have escaped a domestic violence situation to secure safe housing. This project was accomplished through a unique combination of community support, with over 90 subcontractors funding, designing, and building this project with donations generously contributed by the community.
As this was a community project, the organisation reached out to us to manufacture and install the security screening to the residence and we were more than happy to contribute. With the project housing at-risk families leaving dangerous situations, security was the paramount concern. The home was built with a top-of-the-line alarm and security system and so it was important that our screens followed suit. At Factory Fit, all of our security screens are manufactured and installed to Australian Standards, so we were able to add another crucial layer of security to the residence.
The final product was a secure and beautiful addition to the home and the whole team at Factory Fit were proud to be a part of and contribute to this community project that will positively affect the lives of many families in Queensland.
