Abet Laminati’s exterior grade MEG F1 high pressure laminate is rated Class B-s1, d0 (as is standard MEG >12mm). This makes it fully compliant for all non-residential applications and up to 18m high for residential schemes in England and Wales and 11m in Scotland.
Abet Laminati’s exterior grade MEG high pressure laminate is still going strong on two developments of B3Living’s housing portfolio. MEG has been used throughout the Fishers Close and Coopers Walk developments to revitalise and refresh the concrete exteriors as well as internally and externally on the stairwells and balconies. A range of different pastel colours were used to break up the exterior and to create interesting architectural details.
This scheme is a perfect example of high performance MEG in action where the need for high performance and durability is married up with low life-cycle costs and aesthetic design.
The MEG range comprises 58 colours and 31 woodgrains together with 5 concrete and metal effect finishes. MEG is also able to incorporate Abet’s digital printing technology. This means that almost any design, photograph or pattern can be reproduced in stunning detail to give architects and designers unparalleled freedom to create unusual and dramatic building facades.
MEG is a self-supporting high pressure laminate (HPL) for cladding the exterior of buildings, balconies and other applications. It features high resistance to temperature, climate shock, weathering, UV light and impact. Furthermore, its chemical resistant nature and closed structure do not allow paint in spray cans, various inks, emulsion paints, lipstick or pastel paints to penetrate into the decorative layer. This negates the need for any anti-graffiti treatment and makes the surface easy to clean.
