Hundreds of metres of compact grade High Pressure Laminate from Abet Laminati has been used to innovative effect at the new £20 million Shree Swaminarayan Sidhant Sajivan Mandal Temple in Kingsbury, London designed by Loates Taylor Shannon Architects.
As part of the design, Brent Plastics supplied Abet Laminati’s Decori Minimi 567 and 568 in 0.9mm in a Mandarin texture and 807 in compact grade in a SEI texture from the Colours range. The Decori Minimi range offers a mottled effect decor created by the electronic processing of a number of small textures. This laminate was fabricated by BusyBee Joinery to produce innovative shoe lockers in both the male and female changing areas as well as shower lockers, cubicles and wall panelling in the sports complex and elsewhere.
This stunning Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Complex is manufactured from stone and GRC comprising over 3,700 sq metres of temple, community centre and sports complex. All materials were obtained from sustainable sources while rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic panels and green roofs all add to the buildings low impact combining traditional Indian architecture and carvings with ‘green’ technology.
As with all the finishes from Abet Laminati, the range meets or exceeds all European and British performance standards for resistance to wear, heat, moisture, impact and scratching. The compact grade laminate from Abet Ltd’s UK & Ireland Collection is available in 3660 x 1610mm sheet sizes in a 12mm thickness and is widely used for cubicles, lockers and changing rooms where high quality performance and design are carefully crafted together to create an attractive visual experience.
