Showcasing the use of long lasting powder coated architectural finishes
The materials used for the Assembly Hall and Music Department of the Sacred Heart School of Performing Arts have set a new benchmark of possibility for the fusion between decorative and functional design.
ASSDA member Stainless Sections provided the stainless steel cladding for the Adelaide school building, for its hard wearing and low maintenance properties. However, keeping to the creative nature of the activities to be performed within the building, a strong focus on the aesthetics was adopted.
The face side of the stainless steel was powder coated and then polished to produce a warm and coloured background.
Roy Carter of Stainless Sections says the product gives users the best of both worlds.
“The material allows the colour to be added without compromising wearability of the metal surface,” he says. Roy also says the material facilitates ease of cleaning and graffiti removal.
The custom produced cladding panels used a 0.6mm base material, which was rigidised to a 1.2mm finish. The material was installed as interlocking panels, complementing the linear building components.
