Metalline glazed in Ultima insulated panels have provided the finishing touch to the external façade of a dilapidated 1970’s office block refurbished into a ‘BREEAM Excellent’ council offices in Eastleigh, Hampshire. The exterior façade featured a range of horizontal, corner and vertical Ultima sandwich panels glazed in on all four sides to a Kawneer structural glazed system. Each of the 50 vertical panels were manufactured by Metalline in aluminium in 3150 mm lengths and joined together to form an impressive 6300mm long aspect. Metalline’s Ultima insulated panels possess excellent acoustic, thermal and fire performance ratings. The panels can also be glazed into a standard curtain walling or, as at Eastleigh, a structural glazing system.
