The Forge On Broadway

Laminators Inc.

If there's a right balance between style and affordability, the developers behind The Forge On Broadway in Buffalo, NY, seem to have struck it. Conceived to provide affordable 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom units for tenants meeting income caps, the 159-unit, three-story project offers plenty of amenities and boasts curb appeal to boot, thanks in part to the incorporation of Omega-Lite ACM panels from Laminators Inc. into the design.

The exterior of the newly built apartment complex features Dove Grey, Slate Grey, and Regal Blue Omega-Lite ACM panels.  Silvestri Architects, Buffalo, NY chose Omega-Lite panels because they offer a highly decorative, strong and durable surface finish for exterior wall surfaces.  Composed of a polypropylene, corrugated core between two finished aluminum sheets, these panels are non-absorbent, water-resistant and easy to maintain.

WBE Walls and Ceilings, Grand Island, NY installed 10,000 sq. ft. of panels using Laminators’ 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding installation system.  Overseeing the installation was general contractor Kulback’s Inc., Lancaster, NY.

Laminators’ 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Molding system is a proprietary system that uses durable 1-piece moldings for a simple installation. The moldings are available in two styles, "H" and "Reveal H", offering two different design options for the panel joints. The installed system provides a traditional, yet high-tech appearance at an affordable cost.

Laminators’ Omega-Lite panels installed with the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit system guaranteed The Forge on Broadway a class A fire rating. The system meets NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 285 requirements, as well as Miami-Dade County Product Control and Florida Product Approval requirements. Laminators Inc. manufactures these high-quality ACM panels to such stringent performance levels so design professionals and building owners can have confidence that their cladding will withstand the most extreme conditions.
