Ai wins national award

Ai’s award winning LIMS project

Ai’s Powder Coat line won the AISF award for “Best use of Powder Coating – Commercial Windows and Doors” for our work on the LaTrobe Institute of Molecular Science project. The award was announced at the annual AWA Conference in Canberra in early October.

The AISF developed the series of industry awards to celebrate excellence within the surface finishing community in Australia. Other categories included powder coating in residential projects and anodising for a seaside environment. Ai was asked by Seelite Windows & Doors to powder coat all the framing and accessories for the project, adaptors, flashings and custom trims, etc. The colours chosen were Dulux Duratec Zeus Lunar Eclipse and Zeus Black Matt. The window framing system used EDGE Architectural Glazing Systems’ range of thermally broken window frames, U-MAX™, and achieved a 5-star Green Design Star rating. Some of the U-MAX™ sections were produced specifically for the LIMS project.

Ai Powder Coat line, as an approved Dulux Applicator, followed all Quality Control procedures required to apply warranted powder.
