700 sqm of Optima TFC in 3.0 mm Aluminium J57S Anodised Regency Gold 1 has been used on the brand new Northshore Hilton hotel in Stockton in the North East.

Optima TFC was selected as the client required a discrete fixing system with a durable finish due to the building location.

The seven-story hotel development, Teesside’s first new Hampton by Hilton hotel, will complement the nearby Globe Theatre which is currently being restored by the Council back to its former glory as a major concert venue in the North East.

“The Anodised façade provides a hard wearing aesthetically pleasing appearance. It is one of the more consistent in shade Anodising jobs I have seen.”  Jamie Smith, Estimator at Sotech Optima

  • Due to the nature of the anodising process and the tight quality controls on both the aluminium and the surface treatment, anodising has a homogeneous (matching & consistent) appearance.
  • Colours, textures and patterns can be incorporated in the anodic film, enhancing the natural metallic appearance without affecting the total UV resistance of the rainscreen cladding.
  • Anodising enhances the natural qualities of aluminium further; it permits a strongly contemporary finish with incomparable corrosion and abrasion resistance.
  • Aluminium is exceptionally recyclable, requires minimal maintenance and has proven lifetime performance.
