APL StrongBak™ - out-performing the traditional high performance envelope construction systems

Architectural Profiles Limited StrongBak™ is a very logical Structural wall Framing System, but it is the expertise and experience which went into it's design which makes StrongBak™ such a robust, high performance and cost-efficient construction system - and one which is supremely placed to meet the increasing demands of today's construction sector.

The new AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre (KTC) designed by Bond Bryan Architects and being built by BAM Construction with roofing and cladding being installed by Roofdec Limited is a prime example of how StrongBak™ 'Through wall engineering' is providing the high performance answer - at the right price.

Pictured here is the KTC building incorporating the StrongBak™ system, which includes StrongBak™ IFS structural sections forming the framing for the complete external envelope which is carrying many different finishes including:- large areas of vulcan grey terracotta wall tiles, timber, AP45HR (half round) profile, AP70L live louvers and louver profile cladding, AP Structural roof deck and APL CPS Alucobond Rainscreen cladding.

The completed wall and roof constructions are all examples of APL Energi™ Roof and Wall Systems which are documented to reduce carbon emissions by 45%.
