1000sqm Optima FC was provided for London’s Heathrow Holiday Inn Hotel, the FC Rainscreen was the perfect choice as the client required secret fix large format panels for the 623-bedroom hotel.
The project came with its challenges, the system required each panel to ‘return’ into the window reveal. As there is little room for error with this material a great deal of accuracy in manufacturing and installation was required to ensure the panels fit first time.
Jamie Smith, Estimator at Sotech said “The final appearance of the project is aesthetically pleasing, the quality of the install and design by Clarke Facades only assists in enhancing the image”
The Optima FC is versatile and available in a multitude of materials and thicknesses (from 1.5mm to 4mm) it has been independently tested and accredited to CWCT standards and fully compliant to NHBC requirements.
