Metal Technology hits the heights at Olympic Way

Metal Technology has supplied its innovative architectural aluminium products on one of London’s tallest buildings. Designed by Hunt Thompson and built by main contractor Donban, the new 4 star, 20 storey, 235 bedroom Park Inn Hotel and 158 apartment building sits at a prominent junction adjacent to Olympic Way, only 300m from Wembley Stadium. Each home has generous outdoor space and spectacular views of the iconic home of football.

The design called for visual impact and high performance from door, window, curtain walling and Brise Soleil systems. Metal Technology System 9 and 10 single / double–action pivot commercial doors offer both standard and anti-finger trap forms as well as a fully rebated option with butt hinges. Double and single door leaf options are included in the range and a variety of door jamb and stile formats offers the designer the flexibility to achieve the entrance required.

The fully complementary System 5-20 Tilt and Turn Window provides all the advantages of polyamide thermal break technology in meeting current thermal building regulation requirements. Tilt ventilation and the ability to clean the windows from inside the building make System 5-20 the easy choice for any application.

Metal Technology’s System 22 Brise Soleil is a lightweight solar shading system to suit most architectural requirements. Simple to install, it is designed to reduce solar glare and overheating within the building. At the Park Inn, aerofoil blades placed between outriggers are attached back to Metal Technology’s System 17 Curtain Walling with the blades providing a continuous shade around the building’s stunning corners and curves.
