Powdertech Evolution for visual impact

Powdertech Corby Ltd has recently finished powder coating a mixed-use apartment building occupying a prominent corner position on Great Portland Street in London’s West End. The street is an interesting mix of small shops, grand eighteenth-century buildings and newer constructions with the imposing architecture of Portland Place and Harley Street nearby. Vabel has designed and built an additional two stories on to the corner building to contain penthouse apartments.

The 1980’s façade of the building looked tired and out-of-keeping with the surrounding streetscape. Vabel has upgraded the entire façade in high quality materials complementary to the surroundings. Expanded aluminium mesh was used and this needed a metal finishing that would not only offer protection from weather and corrosion but would create a visual impact amongst the surrounding architecture. Powdertech Corby supplied several samples of aluminium mesh coated in shades from the metallic range of the company’s Evolution™ Collection of powder coatings. The selected shade was used to coat 75 panels of expanded mesh covering a total area of 230 square metres and 150 linear metres of angle components.

 “Our Evolution range of powders reflect the look of metal in its in natural and weathered states. They provide a metal finishing that offers excellent protection from weather and corrosion and also looks that little bit different,“ said Richard Besant, Director, Powdertech Corby.
