Italia-Corten
Application

Framed panels are manufactured to custom-sizes for a wide variety of applications such as wall cladding, car park screens, compounds, plant housing, ventilation grilles and balustrades.

Description

Louvred cladding system manufactured from Corten steel with a linear aesthetic providing visual screening for wall cladding and compounds.

Features and benefits:

  • Made either with overlapping louvres for 100% visual screening or with a shorter profile for 80% visual screening.
  • Horizontal louvres as standard.
  • Available with vertical louvres to provide a variable degree of visual screening depending on the angle of view.
  • The steel construction creates a robust panel suitable for ground and street-front locations as well as roof-top and elevated situations.
  • The louvre profile is formed from triple flanged flat bars which form a continuous linear aesthetic.
  • The louvres are secured by electrofusion to 4 mm diameter vertical round bars.
  • Panels can be designed with the louvre blades sloping upwards which provides more effective visual screening for roof-top installation when viewed from ground level.
  • The Corten steel requires no finishing; it develops a stable rust-like patina. The layer protecting the surface develops and regenerates continuously when subjected to the influence of the weather. Over the course of time, it changes from russet to sand brown and finally to dark brown.

Applications:

Framed panels are manufactured to custom-sizes for a wide variety of applications such as wall cladding, car park screens, compounds, plant housing, ventilation grilles and balustrades.

  • Vertical: Designed with vertical louvres. This provides a variable degree of visual screening depending on the angle of view.

- Fixing:

Panels bolted to posts or sub-structure on both sides through flat framing bar or behind louvre at 90 degrees through angled framing bar.

- Bird/ insect screen mounting:

Panels can be framed with an angle section on all four sides to provide a mounting surface for bird and insect screens or blanking plates.

Other requirements:

Bespoke designs: The integrity of the raw material allows it to be cut or shaped to suit non-uniform openings. Vertical louvres can be rolled to a radius.
