Gooding Aluminium’s GA anolight aluminium corrugated sheets play an integral role in supporting Burger King’s commitment to its corporate social responsibility programme: creating modern design that meets energy efficient elements.

————————————————————————————————————–

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.

Gooding Aluminium regularly receive valuable feedback from those that have used our Aluminium products as part of a project. These contributions allow GA to gauge customer satisfaction and to continually strive to deliver a service that really is second to none.

To capture feedback from those that have specified products from the range, GA recently launched a 60 second survey which can be found here. Gooding Aluminium welcomes feedback from customers and specifiers, all of which is used to maintain our excellent service. To take the brief survey, please click here.

The Gooding Aluminium ethos is to offer best value by providing the very highest standards of customer service linked with technically advanced production and processing methods. The range is extremely diverse and can be used for a multitude of applications. Examples of the GA products in situ can be seen within the range of case studies and project gallery.

These projects include variations of Aluminium Profiles, Aluminium Sheet, Aluminium Extrusions and bespoke aluminium products that have been specifically made to order.

Gooding Aluminium are keen to demonstrate the many adaptations where the GA range has been used innovatively. If you have previously specified Gooding’s Aluminium products and would like to showcase the project in the form of a case study, please contact the team and feel free to leave your feedback here.

Project: Burger King 20/20 Energy Efficient Restaurants

Location: Worldwide Burger King Restaurants

Product: GA Anolight (Aluminium) Corrugated Sheets

Specifier: Hurstwood Design Group

Client: Burger King

Project Brief

A core objective of the Burger King 20/20 Energy Efficient Restaurant concept was to create a contemporary, edgy, futuristic look for the Burger King restaurant dining experience.  The eco-friendly designs utilise state-of-the-art technologies and renewable energy to power one-third of the restaurant’s energy consumption, in an effort to reduce energy consumption costs and CO2 emissions every year.

Most of us will be familiar with the 19th century architect and engineer Issambard Kingdom Brunel and at least some of his awe inspiring designs for bridges, railways, tunnels and ships. However, there is another less well known, but no less accomplished engineer and architect from the same period and his name is Henry Robinson Palmer. Apart from founding the Institute of Civil Engineers, Henry Palmer also patented the first Monorail design in 1821 and is credited with inventing corrugated iron and the galvanising process.

The principle advantage of corrugating materials is that although it doesn’t make them any stronger as such, it does increase their rigidity by virtue of spreading any applied load along the length of the corrugations.

Combining Henry Palmer’s brilliant corrugating idea and applying this to a modern day corrosion resistant and lightweight material such as aluminium sheet produces an outstanding multi functional product.

As with all claims for improved product performance, some clear cut evidence is required to demonstrate just how much of a difference the corrugating process makes to the rigidity of an aluminium sheet.

Ceram Research therefore recently carried out deflection testing on our range of wavy Anolight aluminium sheets and compared the results with a control sample of flat aluminium sheet. The test results exceeded my expectations and will be shortly uploaded onto our website. In the meantime here are the essentials.

A synopsis of the test conditions reads as follows. Load was applied by means of dead weights placed centrally on the aluminium sheets. Deflections were measured at each load increment until either the sample collapsed or the maximum load was achieved.

The test results showed that, compared with the control sample of flat aluminium sheet, the wavy Anolight material had an impressively increased resistance to deflection of between 8 & 15 times (depending on the sheet patterns tested).

Corrugating sheet material is a great example of innovation. Sometimes the simplest of ideas are the best. We have a lot to thank Henry Robinson Palmer for!
