The Southern Sun Hotel at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg needed a cladding specialist to revamp its exterior. The already existing fascia had become problematic due to its high maintenance costs, and so had to be replaced.

First African Claddings designed, manufactured and installed a new aluminum composite material (ACM) fascia for the hotel. The fascia was to cover 67 using Hulabond ACM to match the existing cladding on the rest of the building.

The new ACM fascia improved the appearance of the hotel and modernized the swimming pool area’s aesthetics.  It will also prove easier and more affordable to maintain.
