‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’

Aluminium is a highly versatile, lightweight and strong material and can be worked using a variety of metalworking techniques.

Punch-pressing and punch-cutting are among such forming methodologies and these manufacturing processes are used by the team here at Gooding Aluminium to produce a selection of patterned effects on aluminium sheet.

From our comprehensive selection of simplistic geometric designs it is possible to achieve either a rather understated classic look or, by mixing with other patterns and textures, exciting dynamic effects that manifest in many different ways.

GA’s Impressional and Transformational pattern ranges seek to satisfy the need for simple abstract designs. These patterned aluminium sheets are available from stock in standard panel sizes or can be specially produced to match your specific requirements.

These primary geometric shapes of circles and squares are based on symmetrical repetition. It is elementary motifs like these that often rise to the challenges of modern design. It was Leonardo da Vinci who said, ‘simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’.

Additionally the silky smooth tactile qualities of GA’s Ano-Sil anodised finish or the grainy textured effects of satin brushing are the perfect partners for adding that ‘extra’ something to the these touchy-feely’ patterns.

Gooding Aluminium products can be found within a number of bars and nightclubs across the UK. Aluminium is a unique metal with a positive image that naturally appeals to the professional specifier and installer.

This incredibly versatile material, when combined with its alloys, can be folded, formed, machined or worked using a wide range of processes. Thanks to these excellent material properties, aluminium has become widely used within an extensive variety of architectural and related applications.

The many desirable design properties of aluminium alloy, including its lightweight to strength ratio, makes the material suitable for a varied selection of interior and external applications. To fully assist in the decision making processes it is clearly essential that valuable insight is gained into aluminium’s’ functionality and other performance criteria. Significant advances have also been made in recent years with processing technologies, thereby increasing expectations of improved products and surface finishes at lower cost.

Some of the Gooding Aluminium product range that have been used within Bars and Nightclubs include:

Aluminium Panels

Stair Nosings

Perforated Aluminium Sheet

Pressed Aluminium Sheet

Working with Stanton William’s Architects, Gooding Aluminium manufactured and supplied mill finish single and double folded perforated aluminium ceiling trays throughout the corridors of the South Marsh Community Hub building project. The perforated ceiling trays consist of plain borders to each side with slotted punched fixing holes (for simple on-site adjustment) along the short edges.

Gooding Aluminium’s perforated aluminium ceiling trays played a key role in the stunning £10million transformation of the Jewish Museum in London.  The aluminium ceiling trays helped created a seamless effect to this high standard design project.

The project brief was to make the historic site of the Duke of York Steps (running between The Mall and Waterloo Place near Lower Regent Street) accessible for all. Previously, the steps were completely inaccessible to wheel chair users. Gooding Aluminium’s super lightweight aluminium treadplates (GA HGP1601) were the perfect partner for this weight sensitive and innovative project.

Project: David Turnbull Music School

Location: Solihull

Product: Axis Patterned Aluminium Sheets

Finish: Matt (Anodised)

Specifier: Malcolm Payne Group

Project Background

Solihull School opened the doors of the David Turnbull Music School in Spring 2010. The £3 million self-contained building on the Warwick Road campus offers pupils one of the most comprehensively equipped and technologically advanced music facilities in the region.

As a result, the independent school’s capacity has increased to involve many more of its 1,000 pupils in learning, practising and performing music.

Axis Patterned Aluminium sheets - Protective Facing Panels

Lead specifiers, Malcolm Payne Group (Birmingham) provided architectural excellence in the creation of the integrated music centre for teaching, study and performance. The David Turnbull Music School – named after a former head of music at Solihull School – includes a spacious 100-seat recital room and a recording studio with direct audio and video links to the main performance spaces.

The practice, teaching and ensemble rooms are grouped around a central atrium, together with a computer suite designed to encourage a new generation of young composers.

Project Solutions

Gooding Aluminium’s Axis patterned sheets have received a chorus of approval since being utilised as decorative and protective facing panels to the recital room entrance doors at the school.

Aluminium Awareness information:

Key Facts:

• Aluminium is great for incorporating into environmentally sensitive applications, such as this one.
• 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.
