Translucent cladding featuring in new building projects

  • 29 Aug 2017

Kalwall translucent cladding has been extensively used in two recent, large scale projects.

It has featured in the multi million pound Exeter Road development in Bournemouth, as well as the refurbishment of the main teaching block at Featherstone High School in Southall, Middlesex.

Almost 1,000 square metres of the cladding has been used in the Exeter Road scheme, which has transformed a former bus station into a 10 screen multiplex cinema, cafe, restaurant and retail complex.

Recognised as a key material in this project, the translucent cladding encapsulates the building across all nine elevations and encloses the external fire escapes.

At night the cladding creates a warm, inviting glow, proving a beacon for visitors while mitigating any issues with light pollution to the surrounding residential and commercial buildings.

Kalwall is frequently specified for this type of prestige project where high-end performance and quality need to be coupled with aesthetics, practicality and a long life-cycle.
