VIVIX® panels in Hunter Green
VIVIX® exterior cladding panels from Formica were specified by Baily Garner LLP for a new facility at Etone College in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
The designer wanted to add a vibrant colour to the building's exterior, which would help to offer a fresh, welcoming environment. The two-storey building contains 10 classrooms, a library, teaching facilities and a sports centre, and the high levels of pedestrian traffic meant that all building materials needed to be resistant to impact and abrasion.
VIVIX® panels in Hunter Green were specified for the building detailing, including the wings, fascias and soffits. This created a strong contrast with the rest of the building, which is rendered in white. The panels have excellent impact and abrasion resistance and, as part of a lightweight ventilated facade system, they contribute to the building's thermal efficiency.
