The installation of aluminium products must be planned carefully to minimise risk of damage during the fixing process.  Contractors should be instructed to carry out spot checks on sheet products covered with protective film before working or fixing commences, to ensure surface finish suitability.

Follow the brief checklist below for a hassle-free installation:

Gooding AluminiumThe lightweight advantage of aluminium (34% that of steel) over other architectural materials, makes for ease of handling and fixing with a minimum number of operatives. When handling individual sheets or panels, care should be taken not to damage exposed edges or corners. Thin materials are particularly vulnerable.

Gooding AluminiumAluminium items have a best and reverse face. Inspect closely and ensure the best face is fixed / positioned on the most visible side.

Gooding AluminiumMaterial flanges which are oversize must not be forced or hammered into position. Components requiring a reduction in size should ideally be returned to the factory for re-processing.

Gooding AluminiumSite work such as drilling and cutting, should be avoided if at all possible. If specified, items can be supplied as accurately pre-cut and pre-drilled components subject to agreed tolerances

Gooding AluminiumWhen installing or working unprotected material surfaces, a low tack self adhesive tape or covering is to be applied to prevent surface marking.

Gooding AluminiumWhen site drilling is unavoidable, standard twist drills are satisfactory for most operations. For deep holes, high speed drills or bits with a steeper point of angle should be used.

Gooding AluminiumPositions for drill holes should not be marked out along visible faces with a scored line. A pencil, or felt tip pen with removable ink or similar is to be used, which can be subsequently wiped off with a soft cloth.

Gooding AluminiumCutting operations can be effected by semi high-speed and high-speed saws of between 150mm and 450mm diameter, with approximately 3 teeth per 25mm. Band saws and heavy duty woodworking machines are also suitable for light work. Blades used in hand saws should be of high speed type with fairly coarse teeth.

Gooding AluminiumAfter cutting, it is important that any swarf or chippings are removed from the product surface with extreme care, to avoid the possibility of scratching. These should be removed ideally with an air line or alternatively by lightly brushing away. Burrs can be removed by the use of long angle files with 14 to 20 single cut teeth per 25mm, for most fine work.

Gooding AluminiumRemove any grease, dirt deposits, finger marks, etc, from the material surface with non abrasive cleaning agents and materials, in accordance with the GA maintenance data sheet.

It was none other than Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the creator of the Barcelona Pavillion, (which is often described as one of the most beautiful 20th century buildings), who coined the phrase ‘less is more’. Van der Rohe could have been talking about perforated aluminium sheet!

What other material simultaneously provides so many design opportunities to combine its inherent strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistant qualities with a widely appreciated aesthetic appeal? By virtue of these outstanding attributes, perforated aluminium sheet is often incorporated into many architectural components as the primary element. These products would include balustrade infils, bar/counter fascias, ceiling panels, column casings, radiator/vent covers, wall cladding and so on.

It is often desirable to custom make perforated aluminium panels rather than fabricate from stock size sheets. This way the specifier retains much greater design flexibility by being able to incorporate plain borders and other unpunched areas, as well as, cut outs for lighting, vent ducts, etc. With the majority of round hole patterns being arranged on a 60 degree triangular pitch the plain borders are normally lost once pre-punched sheets are cut to size. Unless covered with a safety edge or hidden by some other component the resulting raw edge is a health and safety no no.

Our modern 5 Star Processing Service accurately and rapidly fabricates architectural aluminium products to meet your precise requirements.

Some of our most popular items; Balustrade Panels, Column Casings, Suspended Ceiling Panels, Wall Panels etc, have been collated into easy to understand formats aided by useful checklists, clearly illustrated drawings and assembly/fitting videos.  Take a look at the following case study for an example of our aluminium ceiling panels in-situ.

Project Details

During the project, Gooding Aluminium were tasked with providing aluminium ceiling panels that could be used as screening to the air conditioning ducts, providing the essential environmental controls to the former piano-factory-turned-exhibition space.  The powder coated finished ceiling panels, combined with the lighting system, helped to establish the differences between areas throughout the Museum, but to also work with a family of fittings which support the idea that this is a single, new museum environment.
