Perforated Gate Panel
RAL 8019 Grey Brown
Sci-Fi character Tobor the Great features prominently on the gateway to Langtry Court in Brockley, South East London, thanks to specialist machinery used to create a perforated picture on an aluminium panel.
Part of the Langtry Court area was once occupied by a cinema building; The Ritz, which was demolished in the sixties. The last film to be shown at the cinema was fifties Sci-Fi movie ‘Tobor the Great’.
The concept and design of this panel was the work of Sam and David at Selencky Parsons architects, also based at Langtry Court.
Sam said: “We wanted to come up with something a bit more interesting than just going with a blank panel, something that could add something to that little corner of Brockley. We thought about using some kind of perforated panel instead, which could be more interesting and maybe even tell a bit of a story.”
The addition of the 2.3m x 1.4m screen on the gate gives an opportunity for Langtry Court to provide a glimpse into the area’s past.
The aluminium perforation technology is popular among architects looking to create truly unique designs. Perforations can be made on single sheets of aluminium as in this case or used to cover a huge area on a building’s façade. They can incorporate logos, images or patterned designed.
The gate at Langtry Court was finished in a polyester powder coating to RAL 8019, a grey brown colour. Made in lightweight, durable and fully recyclable aluminium, the gate will be low maintenance and around for future generations to enjoy a glimpse into the area’s past.
