Dobel Film Laminated Steel will be used to adorn wall panels, ceilings, doors and wet areas
Metalcolour is to deliver around 350,000 square metres of its Dobel Film Laminated Steel for Royal Caribbean International’s second Icon-class cruise ship.
The material will be used to adorn wall panels, ceilings, doors and wet areas across the ship, which will be built at Meyer Turku’s shipyard in Finland. Metalcolour previously delivered a similar amount of its Dobel products for Icon of the Seas, which will be the biggest cruise ship ever built when it is delivered in October.
“We are both proud and happy for the trust and for the good cooperation we have with Royal Caribbean International and Meyer Turku,” says Ingemar Forsberg, CEO of Metalcolour Group. “We are also particularly pleased that this year we not only have the pleasure of celebrating Metalcolour's 50th anniversary, but also one of the largest orders we have ever received for a single cruise ship.”
Dobel Film Laminated Steel and Aluminium are flexible materials that can be reshaped for both decorative and technical applications in interior spaces. Using pre-laminated metal reduces the number of production steps in the manufacturing process and lowers the overall energy consumption. The metal can also be melted down and reused for a new purpose.
“Our Dobel products are well known in the targeted industries for high quality and we are often praised for our flexibility as a supplier,” said Ingemar. “Over the years, we have also developed innovative solutions that have been beneficial both for our customer and for the end result. It is appreciated and helps us to create long-term business relationships.”
The first deliveries of Dobel Film Laminated Steel for the second Icon-class ship will begin in Autumn 2023.
