A New Force in Copper Architecture
AURUBIS ARCHITECTURAL is exhibiting its ‘Nordic’ surfaces, forms and systems for architectural applications at Ecobuild.

This growing range of copper architectural products is driven by designers and offers unrivalled design freedom supported by the expertise and personal service needed to realise their concepts in copper, no matter how innovative. The range will be exhibited at Ecobuild in March 2012 on stand N270. Surfaces in the range include Nordic Green and Nordic Blue variable intensities of pre-patination, developed with properties and colours based on the same brochantite mineralogy found in natural patinas all over the world. There are no limitations on the length of pre-patinated copper sheet or strip because whole coils are treated on the production line, not just limited size sheets, enabling them to be used for long-strip installation techniques. Other surfaces include Nordic Standard ‘mill finish’ and Nordic Brown pre-oxidised copper with either light or dark brown oxidisation that otherwise takes time to develop in the environment. Copper alloys include Nordic Brass and the innovative Nordic Royal - an alloy of copper and aluminium with a long-lasting golden colour. In addition to standard copper sheet, Aurubis explores new material forms creating extra dimensions of modulation, texture and transparency for architectural surfaces, including textured surfaces, press modelled shapes, pierced or expanded sheets and mesh for transparency, super-graphics and artwork. Nordic copper surfaces and forms can be combined and applied with various installation systems and techniques. They can be used in traditional fully-supported sheet form or as profiled sheets, panels, cassettes and other factory-made systems such as slatted or louvred systems. Applications include facades, roofs and other architectural elements of all shapes, as well as interiors.
