Architectural Facades and Rainscreens
Rainscreens provide a ventilated façade designed to protect the external building fabric against the weather. They are available in a wide range of materials which include Zinc, Stainless Steel, Aluminium, Terracotta, Ceramic, Timber, Stone, Copper and even Titanium.
Rainscreen panels are manufactured project specific to sizes and shapes required by the design team. They are usually secret fixed to a lightweight support grid which is in turn fixed to the building structure. Insulation is also installed to meet current regulations.
Rainscreens are suitable for both new build and refurbishment projects.

Current Featured Project
Project: London Cross Rail
Project Description: Industrial Construction (Sussex) Limited recently completed a very successful project for Vinci working on the Victoria Docks Portal section of the London Cross Rail project. Our work involved fixing MBK terracotta baguettes in wave pattern using seven different colours onto trespa panel.
One of the significant challenges of this project was working from track mounted MEWPs, utilising allocated track hours and working very close to the DLR train line.
All materials for this project were from ISO approved suppliers.
