FOR decades the Blizzard name has been a world renowned quality brand in the building industry.
ALLplastics Engineering in Sydney have successfully incorporated the Blizzard composite panels in a number of prestigious fit-outs in Australia over the last nine months.
Using the latest technology, a new range of decorative rigid composite sheets have been manufactured in Austria since 2001. The core expanding machinery of the sheets heats up and vertically expands solid thermoplastic sheets. These cores are processed into sandwich panels by the lamination equipment.
Due to the unique geometry of the Pep Corp, the panels are low weight and provide a unique combination of high stiffness and compressive strength.
One of the most exciting projects completed by ALLplastics Engineering was the AAPT fit-out on four levels of the World Square project in the centre of Sydney, on behalf of Telco Asset Mgment P/L.
Designed by HBO + EMTB architects, ALLplastics fabricated four different colours on each level in the kitchen and meeting areas, giving each level a distinct and spectacular presence.
"We are excited by the positive feedback received from our customers," said sales manager of ALLplastics, Vic Kalloghlian.
"The Blizzard decorative panel is the latest addition to the innovative thermoplastic brands that our company has introduced to the architectural market."
Launched at Designex in Melbourne, the Blizzard range is available in a range of finishes including clear, transluscent colours, frost (satinised) as well as scratch proof and anti-slip surfaces, all with a strong transluscent honeycomb core.
According to Vic Kalloghlian, the decorative panels offer a unique combination of features that were not available in Australia.
"These include excellent stiffness, compressed strength, reduced weight, exclusive optical features, easy handling and processing, outstanding service temperature deformation resistance, UV resistance and sound absorption,” he said.
Some of the applications for Blizzard include exhibition booths, shop design, stage settings, interior design, illuminated advertising, point of sale displays, window dressing, shelving, decorative items, lighting diffusers, illuminated ceilings, furniture, partitions, sliding doors and balustrades.
In addition to the Blizzard range, ALLplastics stock and fabricate a wide range of Thermoplastic sheets and tough Polycarbonate sheets including perspex, frost and Acryform slumped acrylic.
