Alpolic/fr aluminium composite panels were selected for the external walls of the Azentro and Eurolinx refurbishment in Coorparoo, Queensland to meet specific design requirements.

Coated with a first-class fluorocarbon paint system, Alpolic/fr assures a design life of up to 50 years in this facade application. The panels feature large and small perforations to retain their rigidity.

The BCA compliant Alpolic/fr was supplied in Sparkling Black on both sides of the panel and then conceal-fixed to meet the building owner’s desire to view the facade from the inside out.

Architectural Façade Cladding Solutions Pty Ltd, the installers on this project, specified the ‘hanging joint system’ to ensure that each panel could expand and contract in different climatic conditions. This installation technique ensures the panels will retain extreme flatness with no cupping or buckling.

An LED lighting system was also installed behind the screen facade to create a unique ambience through the perforations at night.
