ARCHITECTURAL FACADES AND RAIN SCREENS
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.
