Enhancing lives by creating meaningful lighting solutions with you in mind.
Ligman now offer unique decorative coating finishes to a number of their exterior ranges. These are a new generation of powders and heat transfer films that result in a stunning and durable natural looking finish, suitable for both commercial and residential applications.
The process operates under precise standards, garnering certificates from the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and acknowledged by the European Laboratory and Research Organisation.
It begins by pre-treating raw aluminium to develop light layers of amorphous oxide. Non-hazardous powder paint is applied by electrostatic guns to create a 2.5 mils layer of coating.
Heat is applied to the base coat to create lasting durability. A printed film transfer is then vacuum sealed to the surface for a complete thermo print and then transferred into a customised oven. The oven transforms the ink into different forms within the paint layer before it becomes solid. Finally, the film is removed and a vivid natural texture effect remains.
The Woodland Portfolio
The environment has had a huge impact on architecture in the past few years, especially in the field of landscape. Designs and projects are becoming vastly inspired by nature and sustainability, in an attempt to preserve and nourish local nature and/or emulate it.
Design is taken ecology into account more and more everyday, which is shaping up to be the better and more efficient way of urban planning. Public spaces are becoming more appealing, efficient and eco-friendly, all the while responding to the needs of the public.
The Ligman Woodland portfolio offers three popular contemporary wood-effect finishes as standard options, as well as a number of additional wood types available upon request.
The Urban Portfolio
Ligman also offer an Urban portfolio which contains a number if other natural textured effects, including concrete and stone.
