Picture frame finish from Metalline

Metalline has worked closely with MTW Architectural to ensure that all materials were delivered on time and to exact specification for the recently done up Unit 25 Cambridge Science Park.

This BREEAM Good facility, built by SDC, features an external façade of glass, metallic panels and fins for solar shading. At each corner of the building a chamfered picture frame feature of curtain walling and panels, adds to the modern design.

They supplied in excess of 1000m2 of A2 Ultima insulated panels, Unity interlocking rainscreen panels, interlocking soffits, copings, pressings and cills for the project.

The picture frame finish to the corners of the building were finished in a slate grey polyester powder coating. The horizontal rainscreen panels used to break up the expanse of glass shown on the front of the building were finished in tiger drylac 068/70764 PPC.

This finish mimics an anodised finish and features on all four sides of the building.
