Aluminium wall cladding is fast becoming a design staple of contemporary commercial interiors.
Interior architects and designers are using wall cladding systems in exciting and innovative ways be they in perforated, flat or patterned designs.
Aluminium as a constructional metal fits in well with today’s requirements of sustainable high performance design and technologically efficient materials. There aren’t many alternatives that can compete with aluminium’s long list of desirable qualities. These positive characteristics include being aesthetically pleasing, durable, hygienic, lightweight, low maintenance and 100% recyclable.
Gooding Aluminium’s wall cladding systems are frequently the answer to a number of problems that occur with refurbishment projects. For example existing partitions and walls that are coming to the end of their decorative service life can be concealed behind attractive lightweight aluminium ‘secret -fix’ cladding. This is a cost effective and easy-fit solution to such issues.
For new build projects the integration of an interior cladding system into a building’s design allows less expensive and quicker construction methods and materials to be used for the core structure.
There are 5 alternative secret fixing methods and styles to suit every internal application. Detailed test results are available online to support the decision making process.
Where acoustic control is a requirement you can select from an extensive range of perforated sheet patterns. By combining perforations with sound absorbing material (this sits within the tray shaped design of the GA Ver-T-Fix system) effective acoustic control can be achieved.
‘Spoilt for choice’ would seem to be the case for the diversity of materials available to the Café and Restaurant designer.
It is widely recognised that material selection is one of the defining moments in the ultimate success of any commercial eatery venture.
Anodised aluminium is one of those materials that have consistently proved its worth over many years to the specifier market, both in terms of visual appearance and service longevity.
One of the great things about the anodising process is that it’s a fusion of science and nature. Yes anodised aluminium is a finish but also a product!
During anodising the natural oxide film on aluminium’s surface is thickened by an electrolytic reaction resulting in a hardened light fast finish with excellent adhesion properties. It will not chip or peel.
