CAB memberPowdertech (Corby)
Powder Coating SystemPolyester powder coat (Valspar)
Aluminium System1600m2 of rainscreen panels in 2mm and 3mm aluminium

Rainscreen panels were coated in seven different colours and supplied direct to the site from Powdertech. To meet the build schedule and simplify logistics the panels were delivered in ‘site-ready’ batches. The result is a strikingly impressive community building on the Bransholme Housing Estate, occupied by eight GP practices, a minor injuries unit and Hull City Council’s Customer Service Centre.

The application process complies with ISO12206 & BS6496 using architectural Qualicoat class 1 polyester powders. Colours are consistent between batches and can be closely matched such that if a panel is damaged during installation it can be replaced without spoiling the overall appearance.
