Panels a sound feature of refurbished airport building

Sheffield-based Panel Systems, a leading manufacturer of decorative and composite panels, has recently supplied aluminium faced Aluglaze panels in metallic silver for London City Airport’s Terminal Building refurbishment.

Panel Systems manufactured 170m² of Aluglaze panels, which feature powder coated or anodised aluminium bonded to an insulated core.

In addition to the high performance insulated core material, the Aluglaze panels contained a sound reducing layer to achieve the acoustic reduction and wind loading criteria required for the refurbishment. The panels were required as part of a major refurbishment of the airports’ departure gates one to ten, to create more space and a modern, open-plan layout.

Danny Phelan, Sales Manager at Panel Systems, said:

“We were delighted to assist with the design of the panels to enable the building to meet the acoustic and thermal requirements. Our wide range of insulating cores means our panels are able to meet u values as low as 0.15w/m²k.”

Aluglaze is available in all Interpon D, Syntha Pulvin and anodised colours and has been supplied to a wide variety of commercial, educational and healthcare environments.

Panel Systems manufactures a full range of bespoke composite panels that are used to create aesthetically striking buildings that meet Building Regulation requirements.
