The new Trespa® Meteon® Lumen range, launched in February this year, has been chosen to provide the ventilated cladding facade for the Time Saving Home at this year’s Ideal Home Show.
The Time Saving Home, sponsored by Barclay’s Bank, is one of three fully built show homes that feature in the Show Village, and will present an array of time saving products that can help save time in busy, daily lives.
Trespa® Meteon® decorative cladding panels were the perfect choice for the Time Saving Home. Tested extensively for UV and weather resistance, the panels not only enhance the look and emphasise the quality of the building, the ventilated rainscreen cladding system also contributes to energy efficiency by reducing heating costs and the need for air conditioning, whilst at the same time, minimising the risk of condensation problems. All this adds up to comfortable living areas and a low-maintenance environment.
The Time Saving Home needed to be completed within a tight build schedule for the opening of the Show. Trespa’s TS200 invisible fixing system was installed to the sub-frame in the factory in one day and the panels to the front elevation of the house were installed on-site in just one day too.
Lumen is the latest extension to the Trespa® Meteon® range. Its innovative features allow natural light to be introduced as a design element and create compositions of light reflection on the facade within a single colour. With three variations across eight colours, each of the three Lumen variations is available in grey, black and white and several terracotta tones.
For the Time Saving Home, Metropolis Black in the Specular variation was selected, ensuring the building really stands out.
