ABL Aluminium Decking Solves a Unique Development Dilemma!

ABL Aluminium Decking Solves a Unique Development Dilemma!aluminium decking in a unique solution

Property developer Rod Palfrey (Blue and Co Ltd) was undertaking the construction of 2 adjoining properties at Heron Lodge in Worcester. The grounds contained the former hunting lodge which was nearing completion of its restorations, but the 2 new properties were located at the edge of site with a steeply sloping rear garden.

The solution was for an upside down layout with the bedrooms on the ground floor and living rooms upstairs.

A neat solution to access the high level rear garden was to incorporate a “bridge” for each property from the kitchen to the garden.

ABL Aluminium Decking provided a number of positive features;

  • strength to carry the load with a minimum of structural steel
  • an easy to clean and safe walking surface coupled with a modern look
  • plus, with holes in the surface, light could pass through the deck so as not to cover the ground floor windows in darkness.

Rod had previous experience of using the ABL decking on another commercial project and immediately thought of its suitability when undertaking this development.

ABL Aluminium Architecture look forward to working on other projects with Rod again in the future!

The Use of Aluminium Decking in Sports Stadium Construction

Olympic Park & London Stadium Win With ABL Aluminium Deckingaluminium decking in a sports stadium

UK specialist fabricators – Darke Steel – have been working with ABL Architectural Aluminium to design, build and install aluminium steps for the gangways at West Ham United’s ground, The London Stadium (the former 2012 Olympic athletics venue).

Aluminium steps were considered ideal as they are tough enough for heavy use on match days but are also lightweight to assist with the moving in and out of position as the stadium is converted for football matches and other sports fixtures.

Cutting and installing the steps to the gangways was straightforward and the appearance of the anodised aluminium steps is atheistically pleasing and will provide a durable product for many years service.

The reason for the selecting ABL’s Designer decking was a combination of lightweight, value engineering and decking surface finish. The designer anti-slip surface pattern is ideally suited for large crowds and provides a modern and safe surface on the steps between the rows of seats ensuring safe access and exit for spectators.

The client was very satisfied with the steps which are hard wearing and will not rust. They therefore achieved the finish, durability, lightweight benefit and good value that the client was seeking.

Darke Group would be happy to ask ABL Architectural Aluminium to supply decking for future projects and both companies hope to work on other exciting installations in the future.

Why Use Aluminium Extrusions for Solar Panel Applications?

Why Use Aluminium Extrusions for Solar Panel Applications?solar panels

The solar energy industry is utilising strong and light-weight aluminium extrusions for the frames, rails and supports that ensure precision positioning and stability of their solar panel products.

The improved stability required to locate and position solar panels has come through innovations in aluminium extrusion technology. The panel power output can be affected by positional shifts of only a few degrees which results in reduced efficiency.

Aluminium Extrusions are widely used in photovoltaic (PV) mounting systems and frames, with innovative designs continuing to provide enhanced performance and reduced costs over earlier designs and certainly versus other materials, such as steel.

When properly designed extruded aluminium solutions provide long-term exceptional performance in a cost-effective manner in the most demanding environments.

The extruded systems yield exceptional performance, the lowest “total installed cost” (material acquisition, extrusion, fabrication, transportation, subassembly and final field assembly) and an end-of-life value three times that of comparable steel systems.
