Cluster tools are used to provide an economic solution, a series of standard patterns are available which show the visual appearance plus percentage fee air.

Perforations are a bespoke solution which is an additional feature of our existing rainscreen systems, refer to features and benefits from the Optima Rainscreen Range.

Perforations are introduced to the panel system when there is a requirement for air flow or daylight into an enclosure such as car parks, plant rooms etc.

There is an opportunity to create a great variety of bespoke perforated patterns that are possible with the use of standard or specialised tooling.

Optima FC rainscreen cladding has been developed as a carrier and panel system allowing for secret fixing of panels. Its versatility is such that a multitude of materials and thicknesses (from 0.7mm to 4mm) may be used on one universal carrier.

Regardless of material or thickness used, the superior design and manufacturing techniques employed maintain a cosmetically flat and uniform appearance.

This drained and ventilated system consists of a baffle-jointed series of panels that creates a weather shield in front of a primary structure.

The system has been independently tested and certified to meet CWCT rigorous specification for rainscreen cladding.

Optima FC rainscreen cladding is engineered to seamlessly integrate with all other building façade elements such as windows, doors and louvres.

Optima TFC 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 vertical 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.

Optima TFC 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.

Substructure for external insulation

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 have polyethylene anti rattle clips attached to the back retaining flange, these connect with the hooks on the substructure.

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.

Substructure for Rainscreen fitted to Sips or Insulated Panels

Easy installation, refer to installation guide for wall type build up

Panels can be fixed to a simple Eco FC Carrier of minimum 38mm depth to create ventilation with a cladding zone as shallow as 90mm.

System allows ventilation zone to be minimum stipulated by CWCT.
