Yes, that’s right. You heard it here first. KFC is on the fake – and looking rather good, we might add. Proudly supporting a stylish exterior brick cladding, the newest KFC eatery in Keperra, Queensland is looking crisp and sharp.
Providing a striking contrast to the iconic KFC signage the exterior brick cladding facade, with its dark brown painted finish, looks (and feels) like a traditional brick build. But, unlike completing brickwork, the faux brick Dura Standard panels took only days to install.
The real value for the owners of KFC, however, comes from the smart decision to specify the product at a national level. The ability to roll out the same DuraBric finish across multiple outlets around Australia means delivering new stores that are on brand, every time.
Using the KFC approved Dura Standard 214 traditional exterior brick cladding finish on this new build required minimal preparation. To ensure a weatherproof facade sealing the back of the panels was necessary to keep water out after installation. Once sealed the panels were ready to use.
Fitting the fake bricks around windows, angles and signage was also a breeze. Cutting the imitation brick cladding to fit required just a bit of measuring and some skill with a masonry saw. Then, cut panels were simply attached to marine ply using galvanised screws – a much quicker and easier method than building a solid brick wall exterior. Using such lightweight panels was also a significant advantage, both for ease of handling and delivery costs.
And our congratulations to the team at De Luca Corporation for a superb installation. Several stores now completed using DuraBric in Western Australia and Queensland. We look forward to bringing you more KFC transformations as they roll out around Australia.
