Modern composite building materials like Lifespan have opened a world of creativity, bringing about new possibilities for architectural design. Not only has the advancement of building materials like Lifespan transformed the look and feel of modern building design, but, with improved structural capabilities, allow for more versatile applications creating extraordinary architectural showpieces.
In Eva-Last’s quest to consistently innovate, the building materials group brought to market a highly specialised composite architectural beam, called Lifespan. Offering a strong and yet light-weight material that is easy to install at height, opens a world of possibilities in creative designs and building applications.
Lifespan provides design opportunities to create eco-friendly pergolas, cladding, screening, railing and other decorative architectural showpieces that benefit from longevity and performance far superior to natural timber.
Made using a tri-extrusion process to bond the specialised aluminium core and outer coating of bamboo composite, Lifespan requires little to no maintenance, resisting biodegradation, corrosion, insects and harsh weather. What’s more, it is also fade resistant thanks to built-in UV protection for beautiful durability.
The product’s span capabilities significantly exceed those of other standard composite products due to its aluminium hollow core. Lifespan is engineered to be light-weight while requiring no reinforcement, surpassing industry norms.
A major benefit for all, is Lifespan’s environmental credentials through the use of sustainable bamboo fibres in its composite coating, saving trees by reducing the need for the use of solid wood in these types of applications. “Lifespan helps to preserve valuable natural resources while providing finishes and aesthetics that are indistinguishable from the timber appearance we all know and love. This, along with UV resistance, makes Lifespan the ideal choice for any exposed decorative beams,” says Marc Minne, CEO and Co-Founder of Eva-Last.
Available in a range of attractive colours, no matter the application, by using Lifespan, a commercial or residential space exudes architectural brilliance while benefiting from low maintenance and long-lasting protection, guaranteed with a 10-year warranty.
