For the beautiful exterior, Dattner Architects in New York, NY chose Laminators Incorporated’s Omega-Lite ACM panel in two custom colors, Cinnagold Dust and Galaxy Silver, to complement the cutting-edge look of Halletts Point.
A-Porcel in Bronx, NY distributed and fabricated over 87,000 square feet of the aluminum composite panels. 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.
The panels were installed using Laminators’ Dry Seal installation system, which has passed the AAMA 508 pressure equalized rain screen system test. This proprietary system features a "deep reveal" look without caulk at the joints, creating a high-performance, pressure-equalized wall system that compartmentalizes the air cavity and allows for drainage and ventilation. The Dry Seal system reduces moisture-related issues within the wall cavity. The system also offers on or off-site fabrication, providing flexibility during the installation.
Laminators’ Omega-Lite panels installed with the Dry Seal system guaranteed Halletts Point 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.
