Vertical Interlocking System

Uses

  • WALL / SOFFIT

Features & benefits

  • Provides a smooth, flat appearance with negative details.
  • Natural ventilated air flow.
  • Solid panel design installed directly on to a galvanised top hat or trapezoidal substructure and fixed directly onto the structural element of the building.
  • It is classified as a rain screen system allowing water to enter through the panel surface and drain behind in a ventilated cavity. Fully waterproof with the use of membranes, without the use of exposed mastics and sealants.
  • Flexibility in overall appearance. Joints can vary from 0-20mm. The panels are adaptable in width.
  • Fully non-combustible certified solution.

Aluminum

FEATURES
  • Superior quality aluminium, produced overseas and available for use in all our panel systems.
  • Alloy 3005 with a temper of H42.
  • Pre-painted using a PVDF paint system, using at least two layers to produce a minimum paint thickness of 27 microns.
  • Can be used in areas without direct rainfall with no corroding or discolouring.

Zinc

FEATURES
  • Composed of very high quality zinc (at least 99% pure) alloyed with copper and titanium to make it harder and stronger, increasing both mechanical and creep resistance.
  • Continues to develop a natural protective layer (or patina) as it ages, self-repairing any marks and scratches throughout its lifetime.

Copper

FEATURES
  • Lifespan of 70­­–100 years, depending on exact location.
  • As a result of surface oxidisation caused by weathering, copper forms a protective barrier (patina) that resists further corrosion and extends its life.
  • This results in ongoing colour changes depending on the environment – from blue-green to nut-brown.

Retains its bright red copper colouring after installation, before forming a protective oxide layer and gradually changing from matt, through a wide range of brown tones, and finally a robust green patina on sloping surfaces.
