Pact‘s RMP Cladding Panels used for Sky Rail Project
20 June 2018
The project involves the supply and installation of more than 8,500 panels over 21,500 linear meters and follows a lengthy testing and validation period whereby Pact’s RMP cladding panels were selected by the project architects with support from the Victorian Government and the Level Crossing Removal Authority, over glass and reinforced concrete alternatives.
The final designs were deemed to handle high exposure to UV whilst maintaining structural and cosmetic integrity withstanding a design life of up to 50 years.
The design process drew from various project experiences where noise abatement and cladding panels are already successfully in Peninsula Link (Victoria) and M5 motorway (NSW) widening project.
The Sky Rail panel manufacturing process commenced in Pact Groups Carrum Downs facility in July 2017 with completion expected in June 2018.
