Materials and Coating Finishes
European Profiles is able to provide roof and cladding systems in a host of finishes and material ranging from stainless steel, stucco-embossed aluminum, zinc / aluminum alloy-coated steel, pre-painted zinc / aluminum alloy coated steel, hot-dipped zinc coated steel and pre-painted hot-dipped zinc coated steel.
Other choices in material can also be offered to the more discerning architect or designer. Choices in paint systems from high quality polyester, PVDF coatings and Corus’s HPS high performance (200 microns) barrier coating are also available. Selections are based on demands on corrosion resistance, colour retention and other local factors.
In the design of any building, considerations are given by the consultant on the acoustic characteristic both inside and outside of the building. Herein, the correctly designed roof and wall cladding system plays an important role.
EP has various systems to cater for the different levels of sound absorption and sound transmission coefficient (STC) required, ranging from simple roof to high built-up system with STC 50 and beyond. We also work with local and overseas acoustic consultants on specific high-end projects when required.
Working with acoustic specialists and local universities, European Profiles is able to provide not only solutions to your building acoustic needs but also as a testing facility to prove acoustic performances are met.
Computational Fluid Dynamics(CFD) Modeling
Ventilation system for louvers and ridge ventilators are commonly designed to ensure effective airflow within a building. At European Profiles, technical expertise using complex software modelling (finite element analysis method) is available to provide ventilation system data in the analysis of temperature distribution and heat movement anticipated in a building.
Fire Engineering Design
Technical design manual is available on the design of composite floor slabs in the fire limit state as covered by BS 5950: Part 8 :1990 for our composite floor decking system. Design software can be provided on request from our technical sales team.
Condensation Risk Analysis
The risk of condensation in the roofing system is a major concern in any proposed built-up by the designer. Moisture entrapments and condensation inside the roof will lead to accelerated corrosion, reducing the lifespan of the roof.
European Profiles uses software to calculate the risk of interstitial condensation forming at the interfaces of layers within an element in accordance to BS 5250:2002, code of practice for control of condensation in buildings. The method of analysis is defined in BS EN ISO 13788:2002.
Hydraulic Calculation European Profiles uses software to calculate the risk of interstitial condensation
Thermal Transmittance Calculation
Reducing energy consumption is a pre-requisite of Green Building requirements. A well-designed cool building has a low thermal transmittance value. Thus, less energy is used to cool its interior. As a design and building specialist, European Profiles can provide the necessary advice and engineering solutions for such buildings.
Green Building Index
European Profiles is committed to increasing the efficiency of our envelope designs to save energy and resources, harmonizing with local climate conditions and culture as well as improving the quality of life through maintaining ecosystem capacities. Also, the Green Building Design symbolizes our dedication as a well-run and responsible company that is focused on the needs of our customers and the environment.
