Xscape- Glasgow


The 375,000 square metres, £70m ski dome at Braehead, near Glasgow features a 200 metre long ski slope and also includes a cinema, retail outlets and restaurants.




A major design feature is the purple ‘picture frame’ set into the side elevation fabricated by Sotech as special soffits (using interlocking wall planks) and which incorporate a unique ‘secret fix’ system. Optima cassette rainscreen cladding is used for the sides of the ‘picture frame’.

Xscape Glasgow


A special three-coat paint system was used on the 2000m2 of pre-coated PVdF aluminium to match the Xscape corporate colours.




If you have a specific design or requirement in mind for your project, we’d love to arrange a visit or call with you to discuss the best systems, materials and finishes for your individual project.


When you book a consultation with one of our technical advisors we will arrange to visit you on site, discuss your design over the phone or alternatively you’re welcome to visit our factory and training facility to see our rain screen systems, materials and finishes up close and personal.
