Astoria Apartments, Arlington VA
Plastic Laminate and Textured Stainless Steel
The Astoria Apartment project features an upper/lower vertical wall panel design. The upper wall panels are butchers block plastic laminate with a stainless steel panel binder surrounding each panel. The lower wall panels are architectural textured metal. This elevator cab interior ceiling is satin stainless steel with integrated LED down lighting. The reveals and flat bar handrail are also satin stainless steel. Aesthetically this elevator cab interior is pleasing to the eye. It has a sharp modern look that goes well with the overall decor of the building.
Wrapping the panel edges in a stainless steel panel binder improves the life of your elevator wall panels. Not only does it look good but panel binders greatly increase resistance to panel edges cracking or chipping. Textured metal finishes also improve resistance to panel damage such as denting or scratching. The rigid texture of the surface is much more resistant to impact than a standard smooth surface.
