Key Features

Simple and effective
Levolux designed and installed replacement faux timber fins to create an effective, curved screen that encloses two car park ramp structures. The vertical fins soften the visual impact of the ramp structures. Levolux also refurbished the supporting steelwork to restore the structural integrity of the façade, which was originally erected in 2009.

Innovative, highly durable finish
The new aluminium fins feature an innovative, ‘wood-effect’ powder coating that closely matches the appearance and texture of real wood. Unlike a real timber equivalent, a specially treated aluminium fin will not change colour or be prone to movement due to weathering. By harnessing new powder coating techniques, Levolux can offer a multitude of finishes that accurately mimic timber, terracotta or even concrete.
