Panels on show

Insulated infill panels manufactured by Panel Systems, based in Sheffield, have transformed three apartment blocks in Leeds. The company supplied more than 200 aluminium faced Aluglaze panels and these were glazed into the new windows in two colours; grey and a striking green to complement the new render on the main elevations. This transformed them to give a vibrant new look that fits in with the modern skyline of the city.

As well as enhancing the apartment blocks’ aesthetics, the insulated panels also help to reduce energy consumption and the carbon footprint due to their high performance insulated core. Aluglaze panels can be supplied in different thicknesses to achieve U-values as low as 0.15W/m²K.

The work is part of the Sustainable Communities for Leeds project in partnership with Leeds City Council, which includes the refurbishment of 1245 existing council properties and the regeneration of communities in Little London, Beeston Hill and Holbeck.

A premium quality panel, Aluglaze is typically specified when aesthetic considerations are paramount and is available in all Interpon D, Syntha Pulvin & Anodised colours.

Panel Systems’ bespoke service means that Aluglaze panels can be designed to suit all glazing and curtain walling systems. They are also able to meet the required insulation, acoustic and fire resisting criteria.
