Completed in 2008 Sapphire was contacted by Lyons to assist in developing finishes on aluminium that would be a pleasant alternative to the tradition timber interiors in court rooms. A new Aluwall extruded panel was developed in response that clips together with invisible fixing and gives the impression of a flat wall panel in three contrasting but sympathetic finishes.
Sapphire was also responsible for supplying its Frontline Partition Suite and 150mm High screw fix skirtings in Anodised Matt Gunmetal Finish.
