LIDL Merthyr Tydfil

Friday 18th September 2015

Ark Profiles is supplying the standing seam roofs and Alucobond rainscreen cladding to two new LIDL stores, Merthyr Tydfil and Pontypool. This follows on from the completion of LIDL Llanishen earlier in 2015.

Ark Profiles has supplied RAL9006 aluminium ArkZip 65/400 to the new LIDL store at Merthyr.

The installer had the ArkLiner installed, and sealed as the vcl and air barrier. Arkliner provides a working platform and initial weather tightness so that work can continue within the shell). The spacer system was installed.

In spite of the weather (again!), 2000m2 of ArkZip were manufactured at eaves level in one day with the final lowering of the onsite rolling machine taking place as evening arrived.
