Project completed: premier inn, North Terminal, gatwick
The Premier Inn hotel at Gatwick airport’s North Terminal is situated directly opposite the terminal doors and offers free transfers every 2 minutes to the South Terminal giving excellent connections worldwide. The facade needed re-cladding to remove old composite panels that are no longer compliant with the current updated building regulations require materials of “A2-s1, d0 or better” rated to BS EN 13501-1, the choice made was to use 3mm thick VitraDual panels rivet fixed in 3 standard colours.
VitraDual is rated as A1 to BS EN 13501-1 covering any colour, tested to BS8414 / BR135 compliant and CWCT tested to a 3600pa safety loading as well as being available with upto 30 years warranty, all this combines to make it the architects choice for new build and re-clads alike. VitraDual can be fabricated and installed as cassette panels for a discrete fix or installed as flat sheet panels using colour matched face fixings with no oil canning as seen on aluminium PPC coated systems.
