Alumasc Skyline Planters: Keep our built environment green

  • 28 Feb 2023

Skyline Architectural Aluminium is one of the showcase brands in the AWMS product portfolio, and in addition to the highly specified fascias, soffits and copings, architectural planters have now been introduced to the Skyline range in a bid to help keep our built-up areas greener.

Skyline Architectural planters are designed for living plants and shrubs, and are ideal for use in any area of the built environment where land is unavailable or limited for natural planting.

Manufactured in the UK from 100% recyclable aluminium, the planters feature a fully folded top edge detail to provide strength and stiffness, creating a smooth overall appearance with no sharp edges. They can be installed individually in small spaces, or in combination to create a dramatic effect in larger spaces. Planter combinations of varying size, height and length can be used practically to define and separate space or create powerful visual interest.

The raised feet give 20mm clearance at the base for drainage and can be adjusted for installation on uneven surfaces. An integral base plate ensures that soil weight is distributed evenly at low level whilst acting as an anchor. It incorporates holes for water drainage and rigidity channels lengthwise for added strength.

The range comprises 400, 500 and 600mm deep options, in varying heights up to 700mm and lengths of either 1m or 1.5m. They are easy to handle, weatherproof, maintenance free and are BBA approved powder coated in a wide range of standard colours, with any BS or RAL colour available to special order.

Skyline Aluminium planters have a life expectancy of up to 40 years in rural/suburban areas and up 25 years in marine/industrial environments. They are delivered to site, ready for installation and use.
