A focus towards lightweight alternatives is becoming increasingly popular. The Architectural Roofing Company can offer you a stunning array of lightweight metal solutions on your upcoming projects.
The Architectural Roofing Company is a specialist in manufacturing and installing feature roofing, cladding, facades and fascias in a range of materials including zinc, copper, aluminium, Pe2 aluminium and Colorcote pre-painted Steel. With metal the options are huge, and the products can also be used in entranceways, bars, reception areas and on interior feature walls.
In particular Pe2 aluminium is an excellent choice for Christchurch. This solid 2 mm aluminum panel system incorporates an indirect hidden-clip fixing system that allows for greater flexibility during seismic movement. It offers a fully expressed negative joint detail with no sealant required. This has the added benefit of reducing maintenance costs.
Earlier this year, The Architectural Roofing Company completed a re-clad on the 1962 University of Canterbury ISS Building. The June earthquake had damaged the aggregate faced precast concrete panels. The architect, Warren & Mahoney, was asked to replace them with a lightweight option. They decided to use a zinc product as it revitalised the building, was maintenance free and had a timeless, classic appearance.
The Architectural Roofing Company can create curves, cornices and ornamental features through its state-of-the- art folder.
