Wall Cladding Features Grating at new Sainsbury’s
A steel frame was chosen for speed and flexibility, and as a lightweight solution for the build of a new Sainsbury’s store, 68-bed Travelodge hotel and fitness centre at Redhill, Surrey. The external cladding package included the secondary steel, with Lang+Fulton supplying the support for their panels. The architect chose to create a contrasting effect for the tallest structural openings by using DeltaWing-45 louvres on the upper sections and Piazza-66 open mesh grating on the lower sections.
The panels were supplied in three phases to suit the overall construction programme; each set of openings required Lang+Fulton to engineer different solutions. The total amount of DeltaWing-45 and Piazza-66 for the contract was 992 sqm with panels and posts hot-dip galvanized and polyester powder coated RAL7037.
