Optima HC has been developed as an economical alternative to a complete secret fix rainscreen.
Whilst being the most economical rainscreen solution, requiring discreet fixings in the horizontal panel recess, the engineering of the system retains the benefits of a drained and ventilated façade. Superior manufacturing techniques ensure there will be no build-up of metal thicknesses at the cruciform joint.
The system has been independently tested and certified to meet CWCT rigorous specification for rainscreen cladding.
This drained and ventilated system consists of a baffle-jointed series of panels that creates a weather shield in front of a primary structure.
Optima HC is engineered to seamlessly integrate with all other building façade elements such as windows, doors and louvres. All fixings used in the systems are stainless steel.
Easy installation, refer to installation guide for wall type build up
Suitable for all types of wall constructions either new build or refurbishment
A fully adjustable system.
Varying lengths of hands free brackets together with angles and tee profiles allows adjustability in all planes to line and level cladding zones from 110mm above insulation thickness to a maximum of 320mm.
Panels are fixed using wafer head, self-tapping stainless steel screws through pre-punched holes.
Ventilation zone behind panels often has to exceed CWCT minimum requirements to accommodate structural rails.
Consult Sotech regarding structural restrictions, and constraints relating to panel size, fastener type frequency of fixings.
