Sotech Optima IPC, Interlocking Pressed Plank Rainscreen
Interlocking wall plank is a simple, interlocking metal cladding panel that with an appropriate secondary support system may be used as part of a rainscreen system.
The planks are connected by a simple interlocking male/female joint, which offers either a recessed or hairline appearance. The Optima IPC, Interlocking Pressed Plank is secretly fixed onto extruded aluminium support framework horizontally, vertically or diagonally in a variety of materials.
As the longitudinal joint is not ventilated this product can be used as a weathered screen introducing ventilation at the base of a wall and at the top or some ventilation can be introduced at the cross plank joints by leaving a gap with the support structure behind creating a baffle.
