Stryum’s range of finish options begins with panel size. Standard panel sizes have been applied to each product in our range to provide the most cost effective and aesthetically pleasing finish solutions to our clients. Stryum products however also hold the option of custom sizes. Being an extruded aluminium product – we at Stryum have the ability to design new mechanical components to give clients flexibility when it comes to panel sizing. This means for example that more delicate – smaller panel touches may be placed on a commercial interiors rather than using a standard external cladding size option.
The second facet of Stryum’s finish options is the direction in which the panels are applied. The Stryum intelligent installation system incorporates an ability to apply panels to a façade in a vertical or horizontal fashion with equal ease. If a client is looking to excentuate the height of a tall feature wall they may choose a vertical application of Styrum Seam – conversely – if importance lies in cleanly matching the lines of slab edges or other fixtures an architect may choose to apply Stryum Step in a horizontal fashion. To make an even bolder or unique statement – panels may be applied at an angle across the face of a building bringing innovation and individuality to a façade.
Anodising is an electrochemical process which involves controlled oxidisation of the aluminium product, providing a harder and more environment resilient surface. Stryum anodised finishes are available in a large variety of clear, colour, and metallic dyes. Chosen colours can then undergo other aesthetic driven mechanical processes to provide either brushed, satin, blasted, buffed, or bright dipped finishes. This provides Stryum customers with a plethora of options to suit any appearance or application requirement – while having the benefits of the environmental resistance of anodised products.
Powder coating is a process by which electrically charged paint particles are sprayed onto Stryum’s aluminium surface. The aluminium is then baked in a specialised oven to produce a highly durable, flat powdercoated finish. Finish options for Styrum include both standard and high durability powdercoating in the full Dulux and Azco Nobel powdercoating ranges. All standard and custom colours are available in a variety of gloss levels, metallic shades and textures. Consequently – Stryum customers have access to an almost limitless choice of powdercoated finish options to suit any architectural application and environment.
Wood Grain Effect
Wood grain effect is now a common aesthetic applied to exterior façades and cladding. Wood grain effects allow industrial products become a part of their natural surroundings by adopting the appearance of a natural material. Stryum panels are now available in a multitude of wood grain finishes. Essentially Stryum wood grain finishes are a powdercoated product – they hold the same durable and resilient qualities as their flat colour counterparts, but provide a unique and natural look and texture that can easily compliment the natural environment to which they are applied.
