Abet Laminati’s MEG exterior grade laminate was specified to clad the exterior of the new offices and crew rooms of the RNLI Station in Brighton Marina.
Aliva UK designed and supplied MEG 414 which was chosen to match the ceramic facades of the surrounding buildings and was face fixed with colour coded rivets. MEG is high in performance and demonstrates durability, low life-cycle costs and aesthetic design.
MEG is a self-supporting high pressure laminate for cladding the exterior of buildings, balconies and other applications, with a BBA Agrement Certificate. MEG features high resistance to temperature, climate shock, weathering, UV light and impact.
Paint in spray cans, various inks, emulsion paints, lipstick or pastel paints cannot penetrate into the decorative layer due to its chemical resistant nature and closed structure. Therefore, there is no need for any anti-graffiti treatment and the surface is easy to clean.
More than 91 colours are available in a mix of traditional plain colours, wood finishes, simulated concrete colours and metal. MEG can also incorporate Abet’s digital printing technology, allowing almost any design, photograph or pattern to be reproduced in stunning detail to give architects and designers unparalleled freedom to create unusual and dramatic building facades.
