SystemOptima XPC Extruded Aluminium Plank Rainscreen Cladding
Material / Finish: PPC Aluminium
Location: Weymouth


Sotech provided IPC extruded aluminium plank rainscreen cladding system proved to be the answer for the £50,000 project. Over 450m2 of the extruded IPC system, known as ‘Xplank’, was provided in a textured PPC finish to match the roof tile’s surface and colour.


Xplank is only a tenth of the weight of traditional terracotta tiling and is recommended for areas where the cladding comes into pedestrian areas, due to its strength and impact resistance.

The Xplank was comprehensively impact tested at both Sotech’s state-of-the-art testing facility and by independent authorities. These results were compared directly with the durability of traditional terracotta tiling.


Xplank has been used extensively on schools, and is available in a variety of finishes including anodised, smooth and textured PPC.
