EQUITONE Facade Just The Ticket For Sevenoaks Station
EQUITONE [pictura] from Marley Eternit’s architectural fibre cement facade materials has helped to transform Sevenoaks Rail Station in Kent.
EQUITONE [pictura] was specified for the refurbishment of Sevenoaks station because it is available in a selection of contemporary colour coatings in a smooth ultra-matt finish that created the high class architectural aesthetic sought by the clients. Colour Moonstone was specified as part of the £1.4m refurbishment, led by Network Rail and Southeastern.
EQUITONE [pictura] was used to clad the walkways and stairwells leading from the platform to the ticket office as well as across the front elevation of the building to revitalise the main entrance area as, the existing steel cladding in these areas had begun to deteriorate. In addition, the anti-graffiti protection offered by EQUITONE [pictura], provided the long term low maintenance solution sought by the clients.
The fibre cement facade was rivet fixed to a new steel framing system (SFS). EQUITONE architectural fibre cement materials are a dry-fix solution that enables facades to be created in up to half the time of a conventional, wet-trade system such as brick and block. Therefore, choosing an EQUITONE fibre cement facade enabled refurbishment of Sevenoaks Rail Station to be completed exactly to schedule.
Alison Nolan, from Southeastern said: "Providing our passengers with a safe and comfortable environment is important to us. The station is the gateway to Sevenoaks for many and provides the first impression of the town."
The EQUITONE fibre cement facade helped to create an aesthetically-appealing, safe and low maintenance station building that will help create a positive image for both the community and businesses in the town.
