Kalzip’s ingenious rainscreen system
The bi-directional Kalzip FC rainscreen system is stylish, non-penetrative and extremely cost-effective. Installed on vertically fixed modular click rails, each lightweight panel is simply hooked at the top and then clicked into place at the bottom - quick, easy and ingenious.
Kalzip FC rainscreen’s innovative bi-directional installation capability (top down / bottom up) allows flexible project scheduling where on-site requirements such as scaffolding or subsequent construction work can be coordinated independently of the fixing process. No rivets or screws are used - and in the event of future damage or desire to change the rainscreen’s appearance, the system allows individual panels to be replaced quickly and easily without affecting adjacent components, thereby negating the costly task of renewing the entire rainscreen.
Suitable for all common substructures, the rear-ventilated Kalzip FC rainscreen system is ideal for external, internal, new build and refurbishment applications. Supplied with edge folding as standard, panels are available in various cover widths ranging from 250mm - 500mm and in lengths of up to 8 metres.
Adjustable aluminium back-fixing accessories enable the Kalzip FC rainscreen to be aligned solely via the substructure. Complementary mono-click brackets are available for use with the modular click rails to cater for special details providing architects with tremendous creative design scope and flexibility. Vertical joints are neatly achieved with pilaster and corner flashings whilst fully integrated corner panels add subtle harmony and enhance the overall aesthetics of the rainscreen.
Kalzip FC rainscreen panels are available in a variety of smooth surface finishes including stucco embossed aluminium, AluPlusPatina and a range of RAL / PVDF standard colour options. Special micro-ribbed and perforated panels can also be supplied on request.
