Originally specified as one of our competitors’ products, Valcan’s Vitrabond quickly became the product of choice due to the substantial cost saving and availability of stock.

Using Vitrabond colours VB4150 Gold Metallic, VB9205 Champagne Metallic, VB7190 Midnight Copper and VB9308 Bronze Metallic, Whitelink Architects created this stunning metallica shine effect which stands out beside the M4 in Brentford.

The Vitrabond panels were fabricated to give the building contemporary clean lines and edges and the installation method opted for was rivet, face fix.
