Appearance and Attachment
Porcelain rainscreens are manufactured to exacting tolerances to provide symmetrical elegance in vivid and exhilarating precision.
Our porcelain rainscreens are tested to CWCT standards at the Vinci Laboratories, a UKAS approved testing body.
The panels may be fixed by mechanical anchorage to an aluminium substructure or structurally bonded and are suitable for use within curtain walling or as a rainscreen fixed to lightweight steel, timber framed or traditional building backgrounds. Porcelain is ideal for prefabrication off site in modern methods of construction.
Porcelain facade panels are up to 12mm in thickness system and weigh no more than 40kg/m2. The size of the panels are flexible in horizontal and vertical orientation with maximum panel dimensions of 3000mm x 1500mm. The aesthetic of the façade can be optimised with composite mitred corners sections.
