A fully certified and regulated European quality system for architectural facade cladding, Alupanel XT, is now readily available in South Africa through Hunter Douglas Architectural after the company signed a supplier agreement with Multipanel UK®.
These aluminium composite panels provide architects with plentiful design and colour options for architectural applications and come with a polyethylene (PE) or EN classified fire-rated core to satisfy the most stringent requirements regarding fire-safety regulations. They are also easily fabricated and extremely durable.
The AlupanelXT range
Made with raw materials from European suppliers, the AlupanelXT range is available in three variants:
• Alupanel XT with a standard polyethylene (PE) core.
• Alupanel XTFR with a fire-retardant mineral core.
• Alupanel XTA2 with a non-combustible core.
The aluminium coils are coated in a continuous, highly automated process according to ECCA and NEN-EN standards. The cleaning, pre-treatment and paint application of the coils combine to provide high standards in durability and sustainability.
In addition to their outstanding fabrication characteristics, Alupanel XT panels are produced in a range of standard colours and finishes, but with the added flexibility to match almost any colour reference, ideal for corporate branding and other projects where a bespoke finish is required.
With vast experience in the design, fabrication and installation of architectural facades, Hunter Douglas Architectural has introduced the AlupanelXT aluminium composite panel into the local market to broaden its facade cladding offering. The company also fabricates aluminium cladding, sun louvres and ceilings for the architectural industry.
