Modern foyer feature wall in Jesmonite

Posted on 16th April 2021

Our workshop has recently finished casting a modern foyer feature wall in Jesmonite AC730. The wall is for the reception area of a new office development in Manchester.

Each identical modular wall panel moulding was cast individually using a bespoke mould and a custom blend of Jesmonite AC730 based on the silver grey granite material, darkened to a medium grey to customer requirements. The surface of each casting was then acid etched to create a fine grain micro-concrete style finish that also releases the colour detail seen in the images below.

Jesmonite was chosen for the project for its finish, ability to meet the architects design requirements in providing the scalloped design, and the flexibility of manufacture and installation on site. Jesmonite AC730 is an acrylic modified cementitious composite primarily designed for glass reinforced, lightweight, hand laminated decorative applications. It is solvent free, has no VOCs and achieves a Non-Combustible A2-s1-d0 EN13501-1 Fire Classification.

The modern foyer feature wall is to be positioned in a high traffic zone, visible to anyone passing through the office reception area, transitioning into or out of the building. Each of the 30 wall panels measures approximately 3m high by 0.6m wide. They are fixed in place using an NV3 hook and rail system. Panel joins feature a brass T-piece that both finishes and enhances the appearance of the overall wall. Once all of the panel mouldings are positioned together, they will form a beautiful, scalloped feature wall of approximately 17 metres in length.
