Luxury and history combined

Marnong Estate is the largest function space in northern Melbourne, seating up to 250 people. The estate is a perfect combination of luxury and history, combining fine dining at the Bankvale Run restaurant with the historic homestead which allows patrons to step back in time.

Timber-look Veneer – a perfect alternative

Marnong Estate, designed by Clarke Hopkins Clarke, uses Sculptform’s Timber-look Veneered aluminium battens on the incredible facade. Golden oak was used on this project, but a range of colours are available to suit any application.

A Fire Compliant Facade

Aluminium battens achieve impeccable results when it comes to fire compliance, an area where the natural properties of timber can be an issue. Timber veneer and Timber-look veneered aluminium are a perfect alternative to natural timber where a greater fire rating is required.

Aluminium battens achieve a Group 1 rating under AS 3837:1998 and are deemed non-combustible under AS 1530.1-1994.

These veneers provide a natural timber aesthetic while taking advantage of the strengths of the aluminium. Aluminium battens are lighter, have very little movement and are available in much longer lengths than traditional timber.
