Corian® Application in China Life Insurance Data Centre

As China Life Insurance’s main production and operation center, Shanghai data center is responsible for operating, supervising, maintaining and managing the national database server China Life Insurance. The data center represents the age of cloud computing and innovation for the industry.  There is a massive application of DuPont™ Corian® in the interior wall cladding of the center as well as the ultrahigh columns that sits in the lobby impact area.

Seamlessly wrapped in DuPont™ Corian®, the lobby hallway columns are the high lights of the data center.  The fabrication and installation of the columns are extremely challenging as there are over 67 columns in the area and 17 of them are ultrahigh columns.  In order to solve this problem, the columns are divided into many small unique pieces; each piece correspond to a special mold and must be installed in a specific sequence.  The seamless capability and high precision thermoforming ability of Corian® play a big role in making this possible.  The lobby is filled with Corian® columns that provides a smooth yet magnificent atmosphere throughout the space. This project marks the first successful application of large diameter and ultrahigh latitude columns in China.
