Eltherington Takes Fresh Approach To Architectural Panels

1st May 2017

Eltherington is now an official supplier of the Formica VIVIX® range of architectural panels.

The latest development to benefit from Formica VIVIX® panels from Eltherington is Barr Beacon School in Walsall. The company supplied 8mm Formica VIVIX® panels in Storm Grey, which were fixed using its Eurofox façade mounting as part of a rear ventilated cladding system.

Formica VIVIX® panels, which have a decorative surface on both sides, provide building designers with the ability to create eye-catching, contemporary architectural facades. 

Eltherington is able to manufacture a wide range of façade solutions using the Formica panels, including rainscreen cladding, roofline, internal cladding, spandrel panels, plus any other architectural panel and screening requirements. 

Formica VIVIX® solid phenolic is a high performance, engineered exterior façade panel that is available in a wide choice of colours. 

The Formica VIVIX® range from Eltherington is available in Solid colours, Nature-inspired abstract patterns and Rich woodgrains. All the panels are resistant to impact and abrasion, making them highly suitable for cladding, walkways and balconies. 

As a lightweight rainscreen cladding solution it combines excellent weather and UV resistance properties for enhanced durability and ease of maintenance. 

Eltherington is able to manufacture the panels to any shape or size at its modern manufacturing facility in Hull. They are available in 6mm, 8mm and 10mm panel thicknesses. 

“Our Formica VIVIX® exterior façade panels have a decorative surface on both sides making them suitable for areas such as walkways and balconies,” said Chris Broadwith, Business Development Manager at Eltherington. “We have had a large number of enquiries since we began offering Formica VIVIX®.” 

He added: “Formica is a tried and trusted name in architectural panels and we felt that introducing the VIVIX® range provides building designers with a fresh new look. They are an ideal choice where a sleek, contemporary aesthetic is required.” 

Formica VIVIX® rainscreen can also be used to over clad an existing building to make it look and perform like new. 

Formica panels can be used with a variety of fixing systems, from simple timber battens to proprietary Hilti Eurofox framing systems. 

Eltherington is an official supplier of the Hilti Eurofox substructure system for architectural facades. The system is commonly used to create rear ventilated rainscreen systems because it is high quality, fast, safe and easy to install.
