Hardie® Panel: Lukehurst Furniture Store

Hardie® Panel: Lukehurst Furniture Store

Lukehurst furniture shop required a much-needed facelift to attract local customers and ensure the building was suitable to host the family business for years to come.  Working with Apex Façades Ltd and James Hardie, this became a reality. Lukehurst has a 10,000 square foot warehouse on the Eurolink estate in Sittingbourne, which is used for the daily dispatch and delivery of carpets, furniture and beds throughout the region.

As a well-known fitter of Hardie® products, Apex Facades knew that there was a safe and affordable solution available for this project. Apex worked with the owner of the business, providing our free to order samples to help them decide which product and colour scheme most suited their style and brand.  The chosen solution was Hardie® Panel in smooth, finished in our core Arctic White colour. This provides a stunning contrast against the brown wood grain façade board. The timeless Arctic White provides a snowy neutral with calming, cool grey undertones which gives the building a fresh modern look. Kathryn, one of the owners of the furniture store said – “We were looking at another product before a more cost-effective solution was presented to us. As a small business it was important that the project was in budget and on time.” All Hardie® products meet modern building regulations, our façade products are A2 fire-rated and backed by a 15-year warranty.

Apex Facades are one of James Hardie’s preferred installers and managed the project from start to finish. They provided the project with constructed pop out details, uni-strut metal work for the fascia, fire breaks, RWG and supported with a panel design layout. Thanks to our outstanding lead times and having stock on the ground in the United Kingdom we were able to support this project with a completion date of 8 weeks.

Adrian Brunger the Managing Director of Apex Facades said “We’ve fitted over 5000m2 of James Hardie products and this project is another demonstration of their innovative products. It’s important that the products we use are safe for our clients and are backed by a suitable warranty, that’s what we get with James Hardie. We always have peace of mind knowing that they are a great company to deal with and meet our deadlines. If we need technical support, then there is a team on hand to provide timely and efficient information to ensure we keep on track. There is no doubt we will be using this product again soon.”
