A Lively Mix of Bold Cladding and Rich Coffee

Omega-Lite® ACM panels confidently clad Starbucks in Denver, CO.

Hatfield, PA – The first Starbucks store opened its doors on March 31, 1971 in Seattle, Washington, the coffee capital of the United States.  It was then the ‘share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better’ obsession started.  Between 1987 and 2007, Starbucks opened an average of two new locations daily.  As of 2017, the company now operates over 27,000 locations worldwide. 

The vibrant city of Denver, Colorado, having over 70 Starbucks locations throughout the town, recently opened a new location on 67th and Tower.  KTK General Contracting Ltd., Westminster, CO selected Laminators Incorporated’s Omega-Lite ACM panels in the specialty color of Grey Mica for the cladding of the new store. 

Approximately 1,350 sq. ft. of the ACM panels were installed using Laminators’ proprietary 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding installation system.  This specific installation system 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 installed with the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit system guaranteed the facility 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.
