Surface Finishing

Aluminium has inherently good corrosion resistance and requires less protection than most metals. When corrosion does occur, it generally causes only discolouration and mild oxidation, which affects the visual appearance of the product. Highly corrosive environments, however, may cause corrosion that could result in performance problems.

Two commonly used architectural surface finishes for aluminium are powder coating and anodising.


WeatherTight™ Suite
Supplied by Joinery Direct. Suite used: WeatherTight™. Architect involved: Elliot Architects. Nulook (Joinery Direct) is proud to have been one of the suppliers that supported the first Ronald McDonald Family Retreat in New Zealand, which opened earlier this year.
The retreat provides families with seriously ill children a week’s holiday free of charge and a chance to spend time with their loved ones. It is specifically designed for families who have a child with a chronic/long-term illness, suffered a recent loss of a child, or have a parent with a life-threatening illness.

The retreat is located on the banks of Lake Rotorua. The site was chosen because of its central location and the close proximity to the family attractions that Rotorua has to offer.
