The new state-of-the-art 65 bed Cygnet Hospital mental health facility in Maidstone has been clad in Abet Laminati’s MEG exterior grade laminate.
Purpose-built to meet the latest national specifications for improving mental health within a therapeutic environment, the hospital will offer an important and much-needed service for local patients.
800 square metres of exterior grade MEG cladding in a 754 Padouk Soft finish was installed by Rhino Exteriors across a number of different elevations.
MEG was chosen as it carries a BBA Agrément Certificate and, most importantly, F1 panels from 6mm and thicker are rated Class B-s1, d0, which makes them fully compliant for all non-residential applications and up to 18m high for residential schemes.
This scheme is a prime example of high performance MEG in action, in which the need for high performance and durability is married up with low life-cycle costs and aesthetic design.
The range consists of 58 colours and 31 woodgrains, together with 5 concrete and metal effect finishes. MEG is also able to incorporate Abet’s digital printing technology.
This means that virtually any design, photograph or pattern can be reproduced in stunning detail, giving architects and designers unparalleled freedom to create unusual and dramatic building facades.
MEG is a self-supporting high pressure laminate (HPL) for cladding the exterior of buildings, balconies and other applications.
It offers high resistance to temperature, climate shock, weathering, UV light and impact.
Furthermore, its chemical resistant nature and closed structure do not allow paint in spray cans, various inks, emulsion paints, lipstick or pastel paints to penetrate into the decorative layer, which negates the need for any anti-graffiti treatment and makes the surface simple to clean.
