Springhill Suites by Marriott

“LEXAPANEL™ Entrance Canopy – Stylish and Functional”

lexapanel_canopy_b_smSituated in Bellingham, WA, Springhill Suites by Marriott opened in the fall of 2013. This stylish new hotel was built by the 360° Hotel Group, a leading hospitality company headquartered in northern Seattle, Washington.

Defining the main entrance of the Springhill Suites is a spectacular exposed steel and standing seam canopy. The structural steel members of the arched canopy are covered with the LEXAPANEL™ 20mm 5-wall X-structure polycarbonate standing seam system.

LEXAPANEL™ was chosen for this project because the glazing system required minimal fastening to the steel frame. The LEXAPANEL™ connection system incorporates a batten connector with an aluminum clip that was screwed directly into the structural frame eliminating the need to add extra supports. It was also important to the architect that the battens line up with the sprinkler system and the exposed structural steelwork. The flexibility of the LEXAPANEL™ system made this visual aesthetic possible with custom sheet sizes.

The LEXAPANEL™ polycarbonate standing seam system promises to change the way translucent roofing is designed and installed. To read the full article, please click here.

Frequently Asked Product Question

How do I bond two pieces of polycarbonate sheet together?

Polycarbonate sheets can be bonded using various techniques including adhesive bonding, solvent bonding or mechanical fastening. We recommend using Urethane Laminating Film if there is a concern about optics. If optics is not a concern, we recommend GE Silicone RTV108 or GE Silicone Construction Grade 1200.
