Kalzip FC Façade Rainscreen System
Application

Suitable for new build and refurbishment projects; can be used with all existing support structures and wall constructions.

Description

Non-penetrative facade system, which incorporates a fast-to-install, lightweight flat rainscreen panel, suitable for both new build and refurbishment projects.

The system is highly flexible, allowing the installation of the profiles to be carried out in two directions, either from the top down or from the bottom up. This allows for easier and faster installation compared to conventional panel systems, but also allows scaffolding or subsequent construction work to be coordinated independently from the installation process.

Features and benefits

  • Contemporary, visually appealing aesthetics.
  • Various standard profile widths are available, providing flexibility and scope for design.
  • Highly cost-effective through simple and fast installation.
  • Panels can be installed horizontally and vertically.
  • Supported by the proprietary modular click rail or mono-click bracket without the need for screws or rivets.
  • Optimized panel geometry means low inherent weight and reduced use of materials.
  • A wide range of colour and surface finishes with edge folding are available.
  • Internal and external corner panels can be integrated if required.
  • High structural performance.
  • Creation of fixed point with a specially designed fixed point clamp, which allows panel adjustment after installation.
  • In case of damage, the Kalzip® FC rainscreen allows the replacement of individual panels without having to dismantle the entire facade. A panel can be removed quickly and simply using the specially developed tools from the Kalzip® FC tool kit - consult manufacturer for details.
  • The Kalzip FC rainscreen façade system has been tested at the BRE in accordance with the BS 8414 Part 1 test standard and satisfies the requirements of BR 135.
