RigiSystems Introduces Rainscreen Panel Range
RigiSystems has developed a range of rainscreen cladding panels, using Alubond ACM.
RigiSystems has the exclusive rights to distribute Alubond products throughout the UK and France, and the new range of rainscreen panels offers unlimited opportunities for creative, innovative and individual designs, using the wide palette of colours and finishes available.
In addition to the aesthetic properties, the high formability, durability and excellent weather resistance of Alubond, combined with the low panel weight, make the rainscreens suitable for any application.
There are three basic panel systems – hook-on, face fix and adhesive – designed to cover most cladding situations.
The addition of rainscreen cladding to the RigiSystems product portfolio further enhances the company’s position at the forefront of metal cladding solutions.
New CladFrame from RigiSystems
CladFrame is a cladding/façade support system, which features a unique cladding rail support bracket that has been engineered to provide a universal solution to façades – whatever the building structure, the carrier rails, and whether for fixed or floating-point rail support.
The design of the bracket makes it inherently stronger than other similar systems, both in carrying capacity and in pullout strength, which enables fewer brackets to be used making the system faster and more economical to install.
Two clips at the extremities of the bracket allow for simple positioning of the carrier rails prior to levelling and fixing. Having only one bracket for use either left handed or right handed, and for vertical or horizontal applications, makes designing the whole carrier system simpler, quicker and more cost-effective
CladFrame brackets are made from 3mm thick structural grade aluminium, and, if required, come complete with an integral bonded isolation pad in order to provide a thermal break between the building substructure and the façade system. The isolation pad also prevents any corrosion occurring as a result of interaction between the substructure and the aluminium bracket.
The simplicity of the CladFrame system allows it to be used safely with any RigiSystems façades, including Rainscreens, as well as with other manufacturers’ own façade systems.
