Architectural applications for aluminium composite panels

Architects and designers use Aluminium Composite Panels (ACP) mainly as external cladding for façades of buildings and for signage. However, its uses and applications in commercial projects, buildings and houses are varied. Most shopping malls, high rise buildings, feature walls/entrances and shop signs make use of ACP. Interior applications include internal partition walls, lobby and foyer decorative walls.

Stalcor Facades distribute Alubond fire-rated cladding panels in South Africa

Stalcor Facades are the exclusive distributors of Alubond fire-rated panels for southern Africa. Alubond Aluminium Composite Panels consist of two aluminium skins, sandwiching a fire rated core in a continuous co-extrusion process.

Internationally tested & certified, Alubond fire rated panels can provide up to a 3-hour fire rating with the use of Alubond FR-A2 ACP in conjunction with the certified substrate system. A 1hr42min fire-rating can also be achieved when using Alubond Euroclass B panels.

Fabricators or façade contractors are able to bend ACP sheets easily with the use of specialised machinery to form curves and other shapes in accordance with the building design requirements. Custom perforated patterns are becoming increasingly popular and add another facet to the design of a façade. The aluminium material is easy to maintain and provides a neat aesthetic, unlike paint, which tends to fade or peel. The negative effects of extreme climatic conditions on ACP are minuscule. Fabrication and installation are easy and needs very few basic tools.

 

The colour range is exceptionally varied and includes:

  • Alubond Solid Collection
  • Alubond Metallic and Sparkling Collection
  • Alubond Wood & Stone Collection
  • Alubond High Gloss & Mirror Collection

Applications include:

  • External wall cladding
  • Internal wall finishes
  • Building arches, fascias & soffits
  • Circular columns, spandrels & beam wraps
  • Balustrades & elevators
  • Interior partitions, internal doors & ceiling panels
  • Signboards & showroom finishes

Stalcor Facades are also able to offer technical assistance to professionals, fabricators, signage companies and installers. A database of recommended fabricators and installers of Alubond FR aluminium composite panels can be supplied.

Alubond cladding can be curved and perforated to add interest to building exteriors
