Skyline sails through installations at luxury housing development

  • 22 Mar 2021

Alumasc Water Management Solutions were asked to assist and supply a number of bespoke products including aluminium fascia, modular soffit and coping systems from Skyline for a picturesque waterfront in West Kirby, Merseyside.

The Sail is home to eight luxury apartments on South Parade, overlooking the River Dee estuary to Wales. The building itself has a striking geometric form with a unique glass façade, reminiscent of art deco coastal properties from the 1930s.

The apartments occupy four storeys, over 1000 square metres and are flooded with an abundance of natural light, thanks to the floor to ceiling windows, which also emphasise a strong connection to the outdoors. 

Ivan Colvil, Senior Skyline Technical Sales Manager, commented: “Skyline was specified for its quality and ability to provide bespoke designs and solutions.

“Numerous profiles were needed due to the building’s unique shape, which presented a challenge. It took a great deal of technical support and working with the architect to fulfil the brief.

“The materials had to follow different profiles. For example, aluminium soffits were required to sit perpendicular to the building in a white finish while the aluminium fascia had to be in a grey colour.”


Skyline range

With more than three decades in the industry, the Skyline range is designed to meet industry standards, whilst exceeding expectations in durability, design and performance. It is also suitable for contemporary and traditional architecture.

The range includes aluminium fascia and soffits, copings, cills, canopies and surrounds and is the ideal solution for use on a varied roofline and architectural designed external interfaces, with standard and fully bespoke designs available.

The Skyline fascia and soffit system is based on aluminium fascia profiles in a range of shapes and sizes and are often used together. The system is specifically engineered to the highest standard to suit any architectural requirements.

Skyline products are available in any RAL or BS colour, manufactured using a BBA approved polyester powder coating process, which will create long lasting, high quality finishes without any colour fading.

The ability to supply the products within budget was a real draw to the client, as Ivan explained.

“We could offer the requested profiles to the client and we had impressive technical support to back up our offer. The overall finish speaks for itself.”
