Herrington Gate.

A Stunning Design in Profile Metal Cladding

Herrington Gate is an exceedingly high class furniture manufacturer, and when they designed and built their own head quarters and manufacturing facility they required a building design which reflected their emphasis on design and quality which they demand in their furniture ranges.

Architectural Profiles Limited (APL) of Woodley, Reading, provided over 2500m² of lining and external profile metal cladding, and this building is a brilliant example of how such a well known profile can be ‘brought to life’ through bold and creative architecture.

The profile used here is AP50HR, one of APL’s best known and most popular half round sinusoidal profiles. It was produced specifically for this project using Corus Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel in Anthracite Grey to deliver an eye catching building that will stand the test of time.

Architectural Profiles Limited designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of cladding profiles and patented construction systems such as ‘StrongBak™’ SFS wall framing system and APL Energi Systems™ for both roofs and walls. APL is pleased to work alongside Architects and Designers to ensure that the most cost efficient and energy efficient external cladding solutions are installed on any and every project.

Architectural Profiles Limited work at the heart of the modern construction industry and state that it is their engineering solutions which are the driving force of the company rather than the more common sales and volume led strategies of other profile providers.
