The Infiniti fin screening solution, which was applied to the Primark store’s façade along the front and sides, is comprised of 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 300mm x 56mm twisted aerofoil fins. The fins were installed vertically at a pitch of 310mm and extend to 8m in height. The Infiniti fins are twisted through 180 degrees from the first floor to roof level.
Either side of the entrance, Primark’s façade continues at a lower height. On these elevations, 200mm x 60mm Infiniti Aluminium Box Fins were installed to the building envelope, extending 4.6m 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 250mm.
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.
