Polyester Powder Coating
forms the major finishing and protection process in architectural aluminium today. Also referred to simply as “powder coated” It is widely used residentially in aluminium windows, doors, conservatories and accessories supplied in either white or a wide variety of other powder coated colours.
Commercially, polyester powder coating also remains the first choice in finishing of aluminium extrusions. Polyester powder coating is the preferred choice for its aesthetic appeal, the high level of protection it offers aluminium, the long service life of up to 30 years and the sheer choice of colours available.
Architectural fabrications include aluminium panels, insulated cladding panels and other building components manufactured from aluminium such as pressings, aluminium louvres, trims, coverings, fascias and much more.
Aluminium panels are widely used in construction today benefitting from greater U Values than glass sealed units, inherent strength and being a very cost effective cladding and glazing material compared to other building products and materials. A typical use of aluminium panels is in doors where glass is not required, in high rise screening to hide intermediate floors or building structures that can be viewed from the outside, or simply to give greater insulation and a versatile cladding solution to commercial buildings.
Other architectural fabrications such as louvres, pressings and trims consist of shaped aluminium fabrications, manufactured to meet specific requirements in construction that require the versatility and long life of aluminium coupled with the advantages of polyester powder coating.
