With its great versatility, aluminium is used extensively in Architectural constructions, anywhere from windows and doors, curtain walls, cladding, sun-louvres, to internal fixtures. Anodising has a key role in both protecting whilst enhancing the appearance of all of these important architectural components.
Aluminium has a subtle, natural sheen, and one of the advantages of anodising is that this beautifully lustrous appearance shines through and enhances the stylish colours from the AAF range.
The beauty of anodising is its natural appearance and inherent resistance to the elements when specified correctly. The EverShield range is the ultimate aluminium finish by AAF with a finish suited for any application supported by AAF’s Warranty Plus.
Essentially you have 3 easy options;
* External Applications are restricted to anything not considered to be a coastal environment. Contact AAF for pre-approval of warranty if uncertain.
With our controlled etching & polishing processes AAF can produce anodised finishes for both internal and external projects in Matt, Satin or Bright (Gloss) appearances. Brilliant metallic hues including Silver/Greys, Yellow/Golds, Brown/Bronzes and Black are achievable allowing us to produce over 60 finishes for your individuality.
Anodising is an integral finish meaning it is part of the aluminium not an applied coating. This results in superior adhesion and durability as the finish cannot peel or delaminate. The other advantage is that it coats ALL surfaces equally as it is an immersion process.
Not everything is about thickness of coating. AAF has developed specialised processes that increase the density and hardness of our finish resulting in superior durability against standard/traditional anodising. Our simple symbols show you the property comparisons of each finish.
