The project aimed to faithfully reproduce the original design while incorporating a 25-year warranted non-combustible façade system for long-term durability and reliability. Metalline’s Unity A2 Secret Fix rainscreen system, known for its non-combustible cassette design and easy installation, was chosen to fulfil these objectives. The system offered numerous benefits, including excellent fire performance, UV resistance, and seamless appearance.
In addition to the chosen rainscreen system, the project incorporated Metalline’s Unity A2 Through Fix panels. These panels, designed with a wood effect, maintained harmony with the original façade while offering benefits such as UV resistance, durability, and cost-effectiveness. By integrating these systems, the project ensured compliance, durability, cost-effectiveness, and ease of installation.
Metalline’s Technical Team collaborated closely with Starfish Construction to ensure a meticulous installation process for the replacement cladding. Extensive analysis, technical surveys, and fire tests were conducted to select the most suitable cladding products that would replicate the original design, blend with the surroundings, and adhere to fire safety regulations.
The new façade system was meticulously designed, surpassing the performance of the previous system and complying with building regulations. The design considered factors such as U-Value calculations, condensation checks, and future-proofing the building against potential regulatory changes.
A distinctive feature of the project was the uniqueness of the property elevations, with no two panels of the same size. Each panel was individually painted with a unique coating to provide a weathered look, emphasising the attention to detail throughout the project.
Through the integration of Metalline’s Unity A2 Secret Fix rainscreen system and Unity A2 Through Fix panels, the project successfully replicated the original design, ensuring long-term durability and enhanced fire safety.
Metalline’s commitment to quality, compliance, and customer satisfaction resulted in a high-quality cladding solution that exceeded expectations.
