NATURAL STONE Rainscreen cladding

Ventilated faรงade

Improving stone


Rainscreen ventilated faรงade Rainscreen cladding or ventilated faรงade has become the choice for many architects and looking for an efficient solution for cladding and an appealing finish. Rainscreen systems are a superficial treatment, applied either as a component of new construction work, or as a facade and insulation enhancement to existing structures. The outer weather resistant decorative panelling is 'loose fit' in concept, which means it can be easily replaced to suit changing tastes, new materials and company image. Panels are attached to the main structure with a simple grid of metal framing which varies according to the system. This allows space for a ventilated and drained cavity, with provision for insulation to be attached to the substructure.


Rainscreen ventilated faรงade FIXING SYSTEMS

Support structures vary in their format and complexity according to the nature of the cladding material, drainage, and rainscreen system. Most support systems are proprietary and are often designed together with a cladding system from the same manufacturer. The support system will usually comprise of vertical or vertical and horizontal fixing rails fixed back to the structure using brackets. Additional brackets may be used to fix the cladding to the supporting rails. Generally grooves are required on the lower and upper edges of each stone, into which a connecting element is inserted.
