Atkar supplied their PIRmax rigid thermal insulation panels and ZoneFX hoarding panels to The Lighthouse, a residential apartment project in Wyndham Harbour, Werribee South. The delivery was completed within a challenging timeframe.

Built by Icon Construction, The Lighthouse is a $40M development consisting of 143 residential apartments and retail shops.

Within 48 hours of the project being awarded to I & K Interiors, Atkar was able to deliver 500m² of ZoneFX panels for the site sheds. Atkar’s Sales Consultant Michael Somerville worked with I & K Interiors to develop an alternative method for building doors, eliminating the need for purchasing custom door frames, speeding up delivery and minimising costs.

ZoneFX is a smart wall panel system ideal for complete segregation of work areas. The new high gloss ZoneFX site sheds can be deconstructed and reused on other projects repeatedly, saving material costs on the client’s next project.

According to I & K Interiors, the ZoneFX hoarding was superfast, light and easy to setup, delivering significant cost savings where internal site sheds needed to be built. The reusability of the site sheds was an added bonus, producing further cost savings on the next job.

Additionally, Atkar supplied a total 3,100m² of 25mm and 50mm PIRmax panels for installation at The Lighthouse apartments using Atkar pins and tape.

PIRmax is a high performance insulation product, used in commercial and residential building projects in many applications such as soffits for car parks, external and internal walls, raised underfloor, ground floor slabs, ceilings and roofs, domestic and commercial ducting, and external cladding.

PIRmax continues to grow in popularity, offering several advantages including lower cost, higher R value for the same thickness, and minimal lead times on delivery, in comparison with other traditional under slab insulation products on the market.
