Designed to truly leverage the unique design vision of architects, the AI Panel Architectural aluminum cladding range can help bring the most ambitious interior designs to life. With a unique combination of performance, strength, compliance and virtually limitless design potential, the Architectural range truly embodies the notion of ‘Aluminum Innovation’ from which the AI Panel brand name is derived.
With the commitment to safety and compliance that underpins the company’s comprehensive offering, the Architectural Range panel has been tested to both AS1530.1 and AS1530.3, and is rated as 100% incombustible. The product has also been tested to AS5637.1-2015, which is required to obtain a Group B1 number for internal use on walls.
The 1.6mm panel is available in three sizes – 2400 x 1200mm, 3000 x 1500mm, 3600 x 1200mm, all with a fire retardant matte vinyl finish. The product is available in an exhaustive range of truly inspired finishes and textures that range from stone and concrete and designer woods to distressed woods and metals.
Between the Designer Wood range and Distressed Wood, the Architectural range encompasses a wide range of wood designs – but without the need for maintenance that wood traditionally requires. From more refined, sophisticated and uniform wood textures, to more defined depth and profiles, both ranges allow architects and designers to bring the classic look of wood cladding indoors, while enjoying practical benefits of aluminum.
Further encompassing the concept of unique textures, the Leather and Fabric range can bring a feeling of luxury and cozy warmth to any interior. From the organic texture of Latte Linen and the structural appeal of Dual Wave Beige to the bizarre reproduction of the delicate texture of leather in all three leather color options, this range stands out in original ways.
Equally realistic, the Stone & Concrete range offers a wide choice of textures that oscillate between the more traditional Old Red Brick and the subtlety of White Wash Stone. Celebrating a rich variety of patterns, the range embraces a natural look that will inject balance and sophistication into any space.
Finally, the Architectural Range offers a complete selection of Metals. The alluring appeal of the range is rooted in its potential to enhance visual interest and accentuate innovative design applications through the eye-catching dynamism of the finish. In addition, the range offers a variety of solutions to cover large areas.
This diverse collection of colors and textures is underscored by the fact that the lightweight panel is extremely durable, allowing architects to achieve flat, even surfaces that accurately reflect the nature of their designs.
The incredible potential of the 5052 marine grade aluminum panel is also enhanced by the product’s environmental profile. Aluminum is corrosion resistant, maintenance free and recyclable, which means the environmental benefit of the product is enhanced throughout the life cycle and at the end of the panel’s life. With such environmental, safety, sustainability and design credentials, with the architectural range, imagination really is the only limit.
