Escol Panels is a specialist in the design and manufacture of vitreous- enamelled cladding panels. The company has recently been involved in the redesign of several pilot branches of Halifax plc. Forming what has become known as 'The Blue Wall', the panels provide a secure backing wall for the bank's cash machines, while the vivid blue colouring adds visual impact to the shop front. Escol vitreous-enamelled steel panels are highly robust and durable. Available in virtually any colour, the panels are impact-, abrasion- and fire-resistant up to 4000degreesc.
