Project: Queen Mary University London Antenna Measurement Laboratory

Location: East London

Product: Perforated Aluminium Balustrade Panels

Finish: Powder Coated RAL 3020

Project Background:

Antenna research at Queen Mary was established in 1968 and since then they have built an international reputation for research in the areas of microwave antennas and electromagnetic analysis. Comprehensive experimental facilities are available at Queen Mary University and are housed in the Antenna Measurement Laboratory. In January 2009, the University was awarded a CIF bid worth just under £1.4 million to refurbish the Antennas Measurement Lab buildings and facilities.

Project Solutions

Gooding Aluminium supplied custom-made aluminium balustrade panels for the refurbishment of the laboratory buildings.

The 3mm material thickness aluminium panels with 22mm diameter perforations were specially produced with plain borders (on all sides) for Queen Mary’s comprehensive experimental Antenna Measurement facilities.

The panels were finished in a Traffic Red powder coat. Fabricated aluminium angle profiles were also manufactured by Gooding Aluminium’s workshop to facilitate corner detailing.

Aluminium awareness information

  • Aluminium is great for incorporating into environmentally sensitive applications
  • Environmentally friendly aluminium is the only recyclable material that more than pays for it’s own re-cycling costs!
  • Re-cycling aluminium into new forms only requires 5% of the energy that originally produced it.
  • All manufactured aluminium is effectively a stored energy bank for future generations.
  • Aluminium is only 1/3rd the weight of steel.
  • Aluminium’s surface has a self generating and repairing oxide coating which makes it corrosion resistant and therefore less expensive to maintain than steel and other corrodible metals
