Architectural Profiles Wall Cladding Systems

From the dramatic appearance of APL's CPS Super Flat panel systems with the shadow gap reveals, to the AP50, 45 & 18 half round profile range - APL provides possibly the most popular and versatile range of profiles in the UK today. APL's range of wall cladding systems is totally comprehensive, also including AP70 LCP integrated louvre profile and live louvres in seamless combination, and award winning horizontal trapeziodal profiles.

APL wall systems are used in a myriad of applications - working in combination with glass, brick or stone, on theatres, stadia, and industrial and commercial units of every description.

Our wall systems combine a wealth of design opportunities and system options with very real material and installation economies.

Half Round/Sinusoidal Products...

APL Half Round/Sinusoidal profiles are from our family of 'niche profiles'. Their sinusoidal shapes are used with dramatic effect across the whole range of building designs. This range of profiles provides a very stylish and low cost façade solution. Available in both Aluminium and Steel they can be supplied in a wide choice of finishes and colours

Trapezoidal Products

We have a wide range of trapezoidal profiles available - a choice of around 15 different shapes, ranging from 20mm to 200mm in depth. They can provide a very cost effective solution to most industrial and commercial requirements. The variety of profile sizes and shapes also allows different textures to be easily incorporated into wall elevations.

Louvre Profiles and Live Products

AP70LCP is our 'louvre' profile to match traditional operating louvres. Available rollformed in lengths up to 10 metres long, it is approximately 50% cheaper than standard traditional louvre systems with blanking plates. Our 'Live Louvre' systems match and integrate fully with the profiled louvre, Single or Double Bank and provides approximately 50% free inlet area and installed onto a bespoke matching mullion. Available in both Aluminium and Steel they can be supplied in a wide choice of finishes and colours

CPS 'Slimwall' Flat Panel System Products

Our CPS/VJ is a bi-modular panel system manufactured in Aluminium or Steel and used either as a rainscreen or as a complete insulated assembly. It allows for fully systemised detailing - with a variety of recessed and flush joint options being available - to allow complete integration of flush or recessed windows, doors and louvres. Tritherm™ CPS is probably the most economic quality truly flat system and/or rainscreen currently available.

Internal Structural Framing System - StrongBak™

StrongBakTM is an innovative and exciting structural wall framing system which can be installed either to the face of, or between columns. As the main structural wall elements are 'offsite manufacture' design, procurement and installation of the waterproof structural wall is amazingly quick. Excellent structural, thermal, acoustic and fire performance is provided by the system, which is suitable for all building types and compatible with all cladding materials. The StrongBakTM system is extremely cost effective, being normally between 30%-40% more economic than a standard SFS type assembled framing system, as well as being much quicker to install.

Internal Wall Liner Profile Products

We can provide various profiled or flat linings, either solid or acoustically perforated. These can be incorporated together with different insulation types and thicknesses to meet specific thermal and sound performance requirements. Available in both Aluminium and Steel they can be supplied in a wide choice of finishes and colours.

Tritherm™ Spacer System Products

APL Tritherm™ Spacer System is the most technically advanced spacer system available in the UK. As well as providing unequalled thermal properties it is also immensely strong - a combination that maintains structural integrity even with insulation thickness in excess of 300mm. The outstanding structural capacity of the system helps to minimise thermal bridging, permit easy air sealing and at the same time save money compared to 'traditional' detailing.
