Aluminium rainscreen at Bransholme Health Centre

Seven Up for Coating Colours


Our unique plant layout gives Powdertech the ability to deliver a range of different elements in different colours with very quick lead-times.

Tight deadlines and logistical complexity leave no room for error - delays cost time and money.

The colours applied with a polyester system are consistent and repeatable.

A damaged panel can be replaced to match, unlike some other architectural finishing systems.

Powdertech's immersion pre-treatment system ensures that even unseen and un-coated areas are protected against corrosion whilst the coated faces have a life expectancy in excess of 20-years.


Valspar:  RAL7035, RAL7037 and RAL7043 matt grey.  RAL5012, RAL5019 and RAL5024 matt blue. RAL9005 matt black.

Project Overview:

Customer, Sewell Grp & Speedclad

Duration, December 2011 to February 2012.

Main project completed in August 2012.

The £14.7 million new Bransholme Health Centre replaces the old facility on Goodhart Lane, which was being demolished to make way for a car park.

Eight GP practices are contained in the new centre, as well as a minor injuries unit.

Project Details:

The project features over 1600m2 of Rainscreen cladding in both 2mm and 3mm gauge folded aluminium panels. All aluminium is polyester powder coated by Powdertech on the front face and returns whilst the unseen faces are sealed against corrosion.

Panels are fixed on a mullion system and powder coated in matt finish blue and grey. Mullions are powder coated in matt black.

The cladding system features a remarkably flat surface enhanced by the extremely smooth polyester finish. This is a low maintenance and sustainable system.

Panels were supplied to site direct from Powdertech in “site ready” batches to meet the build schedule of panel sizes and colours.

The arrangement of panels, in an attractive mosaic of grey and blue tones, breaks up the outline of the building, softening its impact. This architectural effect is further accentuated by the exceptionally crisp panel edge.
