New residential building gets the Trespa treatment from Panel Systems

Sheffield-based architectural panel manufacturer Panel Systems has supplied Trespa-faced insulated panels to a new development of apartments for charity, St Wildfrid’s, which supports homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded adults.

The three storey development close to Sheffield city centre comprises 20 self-contained flats, with 60m2 of Elegant Oak woodgrain Trespa panels supplied by Panel Systems to integrate with its aluminium glazing system.

Panel Systems manufactured the panels with a rigid insulated core, providing a high level of insulation for the building, enhancing its energy efficiency and meeting the architect’s specification for thermal performance.  The panels were supplied on call-off to the specialist contractor, to be fixed within the specific glazing system used on the project.

Danny Phelan, Sales Manager at Panel Systems, said:

“It is always satisfying to manufacture panels for a prestigious new building in our local area. Trespa panels are renowned for their aesthetics and durability, making them perfect for this development.”

The Trespa panel faces on this project were specified at 8mm thick, providing better scratch and impact resistance.  These panels are renowned for being able to withstand harsh exterior elements, such as UV light and wind-driven rain

Trespa architectural panels are available in a wide choice of standard finishes, including primary and secondary colours and they can also be manufactured in custom-made shades including woodgrains for bespoke projects.

Kevin Bradley, Director at St Wilfrid’s, said:

“This project to build a residential unit in close proximity to a day centre has been our dream for many years.  We are delighted to see the apartments completed and are really pleased with the standard of accommodation they offer. The Trespa panels in particular provide a welcoming, homely feel, which is important for residents living here.”
