OPTIMA XTR CONTOUR RAINSCREEN
LIGHTWEIGHT, VERSATILE, AND CUSTOMIZABLE EXTRUSION
Welcome to Optima XTR Contour Extrusion, a tailored extrusion solution designed to meet your specific design needs. Our process shapes durable aluminium alloy through a die to create profiles or intricate shapes that you can choose to fit your project perfectly. These extrusions are then securely attached to an extruded aluminium support framework, allowing for horizontal, vertical, or diagonal installation.
The Optima XTR Contour system offers the elegant appearance of terracotta cladding but with several advantages. Its lighter, more cost-effective, and highly versatile. Crafted from extruded aluminium 6063-T6, it is exceptionally durable, ensuring your project maintains its integrity over time.

Optima XTR Castellated: Adding Intricate Texture to Modern FaCade
XTR Castellated is a unique extruded plank profile that takes inspiration from ancient fortress walls, creating a modern façade with captivating patterns and dynamic visuals. It is a strong statement about blending the best of old and new in architecture.
Anodising is an A1 non-combustible finish. It is an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts.
Due to the nature of the anodising process and the tight quality controls on both the aluminium and the surface treatment, anodising has a homogeneous (matching & consistent) appearance.
Colours, textures and patterns can be incorporated in the anodic film, enhancing the natural metallic appearance without affecting the total UV resistance of the rainscreen cladding.
Anodising enhances the natural qualities of aluminium further; it permits a strongly contemporary finish with incomparable corrosion and abrasion resistance.
Aluminium is exceptionally recyclable, requires minimal maintenance and has proven lifetime performance.
Polyester Powder CoatED ALUMINIUM (PPC)
PPC is an A2 limited combustibility finish.
PPC is a type of dry coating, rather than a conventional liquid paint, and is applied to metal rainscreen as a free flowing, dry powder. The powder is applied to rainscreen panels electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to form a ‘skin’. This electrostatic powder process means we can ensure complete coverage of the panels, even on more complex shapes.
Powder Coating can produce a much thicker coating than conventional liquid coating leaving PPC rainscreen cladding with a hard finish. This is much tougher than normal paint and its strong abrasion and corrosion resistance properties make it extremely durable and long lasting.
If you are looking for a finish to make your project stand out PPC is a great specification choice with a range of 200 standard RAL colours and a wide choice of special effects offer a great alternative to anodised aluminium and stone, natural effects and different textures can be used to add a unique touch to your project.

The Learning Zone plays host to innovative design workshops, CPD seminars and launch events where designers, contractors and material manufacturers can meet, evaluate and review projects and address technical issues at the very start of the design process.
We also have constructed training walls where installation teams can come and familiarise themselves with our Optima Rainscreen Systems, and products can be tried, tested and handled prior to going on site.
IF YOU’RE AN ARCHITECT/DESIGNER
There is a huge range of materials, finishes, colours and design options, offering the specifier an almost limitless choice of products, presented in a practical and convenient way designed to cut research time for the designer and provide an in-depth technical resource.
IF YOU’RE AN INSTALLER:
Experience the range of systems and choice of materials, explore technical solutions to specific problems, iron out design details and gain an understanding of scheduling requirements. All systems can be examined in detail and real-life applications can be rigorously reviewed and tested.
