The Apollo Aluminium Batten system's modular nature is highly customisable, allowing it to adapt to your project-specific requirements. This gives you creative freedom to design a stunning linear feature that is unique to your project.
We make a conscious choice to use locally extruded, lower carbon aluminium, so your CO2e emissions on a project can be more than halved.
An Embodied Carbon Comparison:
Traditional supply Vs Apollo Green Aluminium
All our Apollo Aluminium is cleaner and greener, not because we’re ticking a box, but because it’s the right thing to do. And we’re so committed to this, we’re offering it at the same price as standard aluminium - so our (and your) footprint is lighter.
Why Choose Apollo Green?
It's called Apollo Green because it's exactly that.
A greener solution for your project. No smoke and mirrors, just facts.
The carbon footprint of LocAl® Green is up to 50% less than the global average for primary aluminium production* (ex smelter based on Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions). Whilst LocAl® Super Green boasts one of the lowest carbon emissions for primary aluminium currently available and is 75% lower than the global average for primary aluminium production.
Reducing carbon emissions from your products is important because it mitigates the effects of global climate change, improves public health, boosts the global economy, and maintains biodiversity.
When we cut carbon emissions, we help ensure cleaner air, water, and food for our generation and for generations yet to come. Choosing to use LocAl® Aluminium as part of a responsible procurement strategy for your business will positively impact your organisation’s environmental impact and our climate.
Lower your footprint, do the right thing
Aluminium is one of the most recycled materials in the world. This recyclability reduces the demand for new raw materials, reducing its environmental impact. Aluminium is also significantly more durable than timber, giving it a substantially longer lifespan.
Apollo Aluminium battens are manufactured from raw Aluminium Billets. We have access to green billets with a significant reduction in embodied carbon content. Talk to your MBS Architectural representative if this is of interest to you on your project.
Aluminium battens are a highly versatile material that offer a wide range of finishing options, enabling you to achieve almost any design intent.
Finishing options include solid powder coat, anodising and the application of a Timber Effect finish, resulting in a striking resemblance to natural timber when used on an aluminium batten.
The Apollo Aluminium Batten system is designed to be highly customisable during the design phase of a project and rapid to install once material is on-site. A quick and easy Apollo clip is used to connect the aluminium batten to the mounting track, which makes installation quick and easy for both horizontal and vertical aluminium battens.
This Apollo clip comes pre-fixed on the mounting track at your designed spacing. This means most labour-intensive set-out work has been completed before the material arrives on-site, drastically improving installation efficiency.
Our dedicated team is committed to delivering excellence, from an initial design consultation to the timely delivery of your order. Our nationwide distribution network guarantees efficient and reliable service, no matter where you are in Australia.
Fire Rated Batten Ceilings
Aluminium has a relatively high melting point of around 660 degrees Celsius. This means that is requires a substantial amount of heat to melt the metal. In most everyday scenarios, such as exposure to flame or a typical fire, the temperature is not high enough to reach the melting point of aluminium. Consequently, the metal remains solid and does not ignite, making aluminium batten ceilings an ideal fire-safe solution for designers.
Our Apollo Aluminium Battens are manufactured from non-combustible material and designed to meet all relevant Australian Standards. They achieve Group 1 Fire Rating as per Section 9(n) of AS 5637.1-2015.
Timber Look Batten Effect
The modular Apollo aluminium batten system is available in several high-quality timber effect finishes. Timber effect finishes on aluminium offer the aesthetic appeal of natural timber, while providing superior resistance to moisture, rotting and warping.
Unlike traditional timber battens that require regular maintenance, Aluminium timber look battens retain their appearance and structural integrity for an extended period, allowing you to enjoy the timeline beauty of Timber, without the need for further maintenance.
