Fire Department Constructs New Fire Headquarters and Fire Station
Omega-Lite® ACM panels strongly clad Plainfield Fire Territory buildings
Hatfield, PA – The Plainfield Fire Territory in Plainfield, Indiana operates from three fire stations and a fire headquarters. Having more than 35,000 residents, Plainfield Fire Territory is the busiest fire department in Hendricks County, responding to over 5,300 emergency calls annually. The department provides support in all disciplines, but has a leadership role in water/ice, rope, confined spaces and vehicle/machinery extrication rescues.
Leading the project was general contractor, Bowen Engineering in Indianapolis, IN and RAM North America in Arcadia, IN. RAM North America installed a total of 7,000 sq. ft. of Omega-Lite ACM panels in the classic Bright Silver using Laminators' proprietary 1-Piece, Tight-Fit installation system.
CR Architecture + Design in Cincinnati, OH chose the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit system because it made panel installation easy using Laminators’ durable 1-piece moldings— both "H" and "Reveal H" moldings are available providing two different design options for the panel joints. A traditional, yet high-tech appearance was obtained at an affordable cost for all involved.
Omega-Lite panels offer a highly decorative, strong, and durable surface finish for exterior wall surfaces. Composed of a polypropylene, corrugated core between two finished aluminum sheets, these panels are non-absorbent, water-resistant and easy to maintain.
Omega-Lite installed with the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit system guaranteed Plainfield Fire Territory Fire Headquarters and Fire Station a class A fire rating as well as met NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 285, Miami-Dade County Product Control and Florida Product Approval requirements. Laminators Inc. manufactures high quality ACM panels that meet these stringent performance levels and provide design professionals and building owners the confidence that their cladding will withstand the most extreme conditions.
