Infiniti Aluminium Box Fins

Levolux Primark Fort Kinnaird
The Infiniti fin screening solution, which is applied to the store’s façade along the front and sides, comprises a combination of 200mm wide Infiniti aluminium box fins and 300mm wide twisted Infiniti aerofoil-shaped fins. All fins are formed from single-piece aluminium extrusions, which were designed, fabricated and installed by Levolux.

The building can be considered in two parts – the taller, entrance section of the shop and the two storey shopping areas. The entrance area, apart from a full height glazed section, is wrapped in Infiniti 300 x 56 mm twisted aerofoil fins. The fins were installed vertically at a pitch of 310mm and extend to 8 m in height. The Infiniti fins are twisted through 180 degrees from first floor to roof level.

Either side of the entrance, the store’s façade continues at a lower height. On these elevations, 200 x 60 mm Infiniti Aluminium Box Fins were installed to the building envelope, extending 4.6 m high up to roof level. The Infiniti Alumium Box Fin system was also installed vertically, but the fins were set at an angle of 45 degrees and a pitch of 250 mm.

The Infiniti fins were all finished with an attractive, bronze anodised coating, whilst the horizontal aluminium carrier rails that support the fin were finished with a contrasting black polyester powder coating. Integrated LED lighting provide further visual stimulation, shining a light on the bronze fins.
