Location: Kedleston Road - Derby
Products: Vitrabond
Architect: William Saunders Partnership

Project Completed: Derby University Sports Hall

Chosen by William Saunders Partnership due to the ease of availability and colour choice, once again Valcan Ltd’s Vitrabond fitted the bill and created this striking façade. To complete the smooth, sleek finish the installation used the cassette fix method which ensures smooth lines with no visible fixings.

The colour chosen for this project was VB9134 Smoke Silver Metallic.

About Vitrabond

Vitrabond is an aluminium composite panel which is formed in a variety of ways to fabricate building facades  and facias. Vitrabond is mainly used as a rain screen cladding but it can be used purely for decorative finishes or to create unique and bespoke designs. The more familiar architects become with aluminium cladding the more they discover the options are endless.
