Wood Finish Aluminium Aesthetic

The main entrance on White Street serves as a testament to the seamless integration of form and function.

The stunning curvature of Sculptform wood finish aluminium Click-on Battens, adds a grand sculptural feature to the streetscape, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the facade and provides structural integrity and durability. The aluminium battens were installed using standard and curved tracks delivered in a flexible state to easily wrap around the substrate.

Factory-fixed batten clips, already spaced accordingly to specifications, streamline on-site installation by allowing the battens to be push-clicked into mounting tracks in a concealed manner. This approach saves valuable time during installation.

Durable facade in stunning detail

Aluminium’s inherent fire-resistant properties were an important factor for considering it for the facades of the building to ensure its compliance with strict building regulations and safety standards. Learn more on the vast design opportunities of Aluminium in the link below.

Pool Area

Internally, not only are Sculptform aluminium Click-on Battens fire-resistant, they are also resistant to factors such as moisture, salt and chlorine. This was an important feature in considering the battens for the ceiling of the pool area where corrosion and dampness are of concern.
