Pre-Coat / Powder Rainscreen Cladding Finishes

Has protection against external ultra-violet fading, it has exceptional gloss and colour retention. Provides a superior finish, greater durability, improved corrosion resistance and eliminates drips, runs and bubbles that may affect the appearance of the rainscreen cladding system.

Featured Project

Fusing art with architecture, the design has been influenced by the ‘dazzle’ camouflage of the First World War and ideas from Cubist and Futurist paintings. A feat of modern engineering, the Greenwich Peninsula Energy Centre is to pump hot water to the thousands of homes and businesses across the new Greenwich Peninsula – a thriving new 48 acre district outlined by 1.6 miles of waterfront. As part of the new energy centre, Sotech was asked to provide 1570sqm of Bespoke Optima FC Panels, painted Ral: 9004 to create the flue tower element of the building, known as The Optic Cloak. It was designed by renowned British artist Conrad Shawcross RA in collaboration with C.F Møller Architects.

Formed from perforated 4mm J57s anodised natural silver, the mesmorising design was created using an aluminium sub-frame which supports triangular anodised rainscreen panels manufactured by Sotech. Mound lugs we used to secure the panels on site. Each panel was perforated and folded at different angles to create complex geometric patterns that filter natural light in the day and integrated lighting at night to create different visual effects. The materials and finishes were selected to fit the local environment – outlined by 1.6 miles of seawater – and meet a wind load performance requirements.
