Colourful and Creative Wall cladding printing on aluminium panels.
The final touches and last pieces of the refurbishment upgrade of the William Morris Primary School in Mitcham, London were finally installed last week. This finished off the children’s play area beautifully. The artificial coloured grass and planners definitely complementing the wall cladding printing Project Print Management installed making the open space colourful and creative at the school.
The wall cladding is an aluminum composite panel which is also known as Dibond or ACM. The boards are 3mm thick and digitally printed onto using a high resolution printer. We then over laminated with an anti-graffiti film encase any children decided to add their own artwork! The panels were then screwed into a treated timber subframe fixed into the brick wall. The life expectancy for this type of installation is between five to eight years depending on the exposure to the element. We would not recommend this type of printed cladding for installation over ten years.
Transforming brick walls with an aluminum panel wrap
The existing courtyard was dark and dismal, and the brief was to transform the children’s play area and open space into an exciting oasis for pupils and parents to enjoy.
As you can see for the photos the colourful flooring brightens the area up which complements the digitally printed aluminium composite panel cladding installed by PPM. To finish off the overall design sculptural seats were added for parents and children to sit. These were so have a hiab crane had to lift them into position.
The design agency was Nigel Abbey Design Consultants based in Thames Ditton, Surrey.
