Spanwall products do not have a standard aerofoil shape or size. Our team works with architects to create a detail in both scale and shape which compliments the overall building design. The wide range of metals along with pre-coating or post-coating finishes can offer a solution to any project budget. Soffit panels can be fabricated in the same sheet metal material or as a bonded composite panel in modules to integrate with the aerofoil joints.
We manufacture stainless steel louvre blades and design those for specific projects. One such project was the George’s Quay development’s pyramid roof enclosure. Each metal section shape was individually drawn and developed using Solid Edge software. They were cut to shape before being formed into the aerofoil edge shape into completed blades with a stainless steel rafter / frame support system, prior to assembly.
The lightweight stainless steel Tee section facade features supplied to the George’s Quay Project in Dublin were manufactured using the most advanced combined turret punch and laser cutting equipment in Europe. The product design evolved between the project architect, the glazing contractor and our Spanwall design team to create a facade feature.
These press formed banks of look-a-like louvers can be used to great effect in creating a different facade texture in large building facades. They are manufactured from 0.9mm thickness aluminium PVF2 painted coil material or 1.2mm to 1.5mm finish aluminium with a polyester powder paint finish to a standard RAL colour. Standard profiles are available or the blade pitch and depth can be designed to integrate into other building elements. The Louvre banks can be made active by perforating the horizontal return surface to give varying degrees of free air space.
These are complex folded shapes made using the latest folding and pressing machinery in our manufacturing plant in Carryduff. All of the integration details between the folded feature product and the building facade are designed for structural integrity and are fully weathered. We constantly invest in new production software and equipment which means Spanwall can offer increasingly more complex shapes in lengths up to 6000mm.
Using the same technology as we use for bullnose features Spanwall offers press formed or rolled column casings in circular, square or elliptical aerofoil shapes. The same full range of metals and finishes are available along with the adjustable secondary steel support work and jointing methods.
