Product: Lexan* Thermoclick* 50mm
New to the U.S. Architectural Market, Lexan* 50mm Thermoclick* sheet is a lightweight, impact-resistant, energy-saving, 9-wall sheet with a profiled V-joint connection. This inter-connecting system, tongue-and-groove system provides easy installation and reduces the need for vertical profiles, thereby lowering costs and enhancing aesthetics.
The first project in the U.S. to utilize the Lexan* Thermoclick* 50mm product is the new, state-of-the-art, open-air BBVA Compass Stadium. This soccer specific stadium is located in Houston, Texas and is home to Major League Soccer?s Houston Dynamo. The 22,000-seat facility was designed by international architectural firm Populous (www.populous.com). Populous? design of the building incorporated Houston's industrial heritage with a unique, distinctive look that accentuated the characteristics of an emerging urban neighborhood.
Populous, partnering with Duo-Gard Industries out of Canton, MI,, created an exterior surface that surrounds the stadium with a dynamic sense of enclosure. Linking building design with brand design, the exterior surface is composed of geometrically expanded metal sheets and orange 50mm Thermoclick* - a color that represents the Dynamo brand. AmeriLux provided the 50mm Thermoclick* sheets used in the system designed and engineered by Duo-Gard Industries, Inc., headquartered in Canton, Michigan (www.duo-gard.com).
As the master distributor for Lexan* Thermoclear* sheet in the United States and the country's exclusive distributor of Lexan* 50mm Thermoclick* sheet, AmeriLux International is excited about the opportunity to share this product with the architectural community. This product has already sparked the interest of architects and designers all over the world and has great potential to be utilized in the US building and construction market. .
