Zinc Rainscreen Cladding

Zinc Rainscreen Cladding

A traditional construction material excelling in durability, malleability and corrosion resistance due to a naturally forming, self-protecting patina.

Featured Project

Sotech Optima TFC cassette rainscreen system with a pre-weathered quartz, 1mm zinc finish was used for panels and column casings to complement the local gold coloured stone for this Harrogate Travelodge.

Sotech completed exhaustive load detection tests before manufacture, which helped to set the panel sizes required for the project.

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

Available in a choice of either natural finish or 6 pre-weathered finishes
