Brandt Industries were in the process of establishing a brand new office space and warehouse in Brampton, Ontario. In order to complete their interior space, Brandt wanted a solution to enclose the extensive area above the offices, while incorporating their branding, equipment images and styling.
The Look Company installed a 50mm (2”) modular frame system with internal bracing suspended above the office space, working around architectural obstructions and beams. Extra reinforcement was achieved by suspending the frames with stranded steel cables from the structural girders and then fastening them to the bottom bulkhead for support. The frames had to be built with reverse mitre cuts and notched out to allow for multiple wall obstructions such as air ducts, sprinkler lines and the entry mezzanine. This complex installation was able to accommodate the largest suspended frames we have installed to date.
Overall, three panels were erected in varying widths, all 186” in height. In total, 1,767 sq. ft. of stretch fabric with SEG was printed and installed onto the frames. The finished graphic display was lightweight and a more cost effective way to enclose the ceiling space without using traditional, more expensive materials such as drywall and paint. The finished panoramic image spans continuously across three sides of their showroom space.
The Value Add
The graphics are changeable and can be swapped out for future displays or office designs. Furthermore, Brandt has the option to add acoustic paneling, digital screens and rigid panels to the 50mm (2”) modular frames system at a later date.
“While developing concepts for our Centre of Excellence in Brampton, Ontario, we set out to develop a space that enables our customers to have a best-in-class showroom experience. Our state-of-the-art facility required a state-of-the-art graphic/signage solution and what was delivered is unmatched not only in our industries but anywhere in Canada. This new technology allows us to deliver a BIG impact to any of the customers that walk in our door.” – Matt Semple, Brand Group of Companies
