It is a popular choice from the range of rainscreen cladding materials that we supply, as well as being fully recyclable and consumes low energy the other benefits include including enhanced durability and strength, and a huge variety of attractive finishes.
We’re dedicated to manufacturing our rainscreen cladding systems with the highest quality of materials, which is why we only work with the best suppliers of ACM A2 to bring your project to life.
Minimum quantities may apply, please consult with Sotech for more information and available specifications.
ALPOLIC® A1 is a non-combustible composite panel. It is currently the only composite panel in the world that is classified to fire standard Euroclass A1 according to DIN EN 13501-1. This means: non-combustible and also no smoke development in case of fire.
ALPOLIC® A1 is easy to process and shape, weather resistant, impact resistant and has a high degree of flatness. The front side is colour-coated with the high-quality fluoropolymer resin LUMIFLONTM (FEVE), making it highly resistant to weathering, UV radiation, corrosion and colour fading.
Alpolic is 100% recyclable, after installation Alpolic saves energy consumption of the building by thermal insulation effect. The air space between the material and backing wall forms a thermal insulation layer and increases the wall systems energy conservation performance.
Anodising is an A1 non-combustible finish. It is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts.
Due to the nature of the anodising process and the tight quality controls on both the aluminium and the surface treatment, anodising has a homogeneous (matching & consistent) appearance.
Colours, textures and patterns can be incorporated in the anodic film, enhancing the natural metallic appearance without affecting the total UV resistance of the rainscreen cladding.
Anodising enhances the natural qualities of aluminium further; it permits a strongly contemporary finish with incomparable corrosion and abrasion resistance.
Aluminium is exceptionally recyclable, requires minimal maintenance and has proven lifetime performance.
COPPER IS AN A1 NON-COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL. IT IS A TRADITIONAL CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL EXCELLING IN DURABILITY, MALLEABILITY AND CORROSION RESISTANCE.
Copper is perfect for architectural cladding, giving a unique aesthetic appearance with low maintenance costs due to a naturally forming, self-protecting patina.
The material is 99.9% recyclable and using only 15% of the energy used in the original manufacture to recycle product.
The material protects itself by developing a patina over time, however patination can be accelerated by a chemical process meaning the material is available in varying shades.
Strong, dimensionally stable, light and low maintenance.
A GROUP OF STEEL ALLOYS WHICH WERE DEVELOPED TO ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR PAINTING, AND FORM A STABLE RUST-LIKE APPEARANCE.
The corrosion process usually takes about 18-36 months. The anticorrosive properties of weather resistant steel are better than those of other structural steels. The material is self-protecting, the rust layer on the surface becomes a tight oxide layer that slows down the progress of corrosion.
The material reaches a stable oxidation point where further oxidation may occur but does not effect the quality of the steel. The visual appearance of the Corten Steel is something that it, the material weathers to a natural brown colour which darkens gradually.
The material is A1 non-combustible, long-lasting and fully recyclable.
Polyester Powder CoatED ALUMINIUM (PPC)
PPC is an A2 limited combustibility finish.
PPC is a type of dry coating, rather than a conventional liquid paint, and is applied to metal rainscreen as a free flowing, dry powder. The powder is applied to rainscreen panels electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to form a ‘skin’. This electrostatic powder process means we can ensure complete coverage of the panels, even on more complex shapes.
Powder Coating can produce a much thicker coating than conventional liquid coating leaving PPC rainscreen cladding with a hard finish. This is much tougher than normal paint and its stong abrasion and corrosion resistance properties make it extremely durable and long lasting.
If you are looking for a finish to make your project stand out PPC is a great specification choice with a range of 200 standard RAL colours and a wide choice of special effects offer a great alternative to anodised aluminium and stone, natural effects and different textures can be used to add a unique touch to your project.
Fire Performance of PPC
Pre-PAINTED Aluminium is a great choice for large facade cladding projects, tough and hard-wearing.
It is available in a wide choice of colours and surfaces and gives a uniform paint layer and consistent colour minimising shade variation between panels – Euroclass A1 Fire Rating.
In addition to its UV and weather resistance, it is also easy to transform and allows creations of original shapes.
Prepainted metal is the choice for sustainable design, the aluminium coating is an environmentally friendly process and can be recycled without any loss in quality.
The appearance of stainless steel panels is easy to maintain, as the material is highly resistant to atmospheric and pure water environments, it is also 100% recyclable and Euroclass A1 Fire Rating.
Rimex offer Stainless Steel patters that are produced by texturing or rigidizing ferrous and non-ferrous metals, increasing strength in all directions.
Textures diffuse light patterns to produce an optical flatness to sheet metals, eliminating the unwanted oil-canning effect. Deep textured metals resist dents and scratches resulting in low maintenance costs.
Richard Austin Alloys provide a complete range of processing services including surface finishing. Using various techniques we can provide you with grades bright, reflective and highly polished finishes.
Stainless Steel is Euroclass A1 Fire rating, the appearance of stainless steel panels is easy to maintain and 100% recyclable.
A TRADITIONAL CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL EXCELLING IN DURABILITY, MALLEABILITY AND CORROSION RESISTANCE DUE TO A NATURALLY FORMING, SELF-PROTECTING PATINA.
Naturally resistance to corrosion and virtually maintenance free as the rinsing effect of rainwater performs this task naturally. Zinc lends itself to both traditional and contemporary design. – Euroclass A1 Fire rating
One of the most unique features of Zinc Composite Material is that it uses the effect of air and the elements to enhance it’s finish; available in a natural blue grey, as well as numerous other shades, ZCM’s pre-weathered finish means that it matures over time as it’s exposed to the outside, and the natural patina that develops means that scratches and imperfections are virtually unnoticeable.
The surface only requires minor cleaning and maintenance over its lifetime.
