Building Envelope Kalzip® FC rainscreen system

Kalzip® FC rainscreen system

Ingenious, attractive, innovative and economical.

Kalzip FC rainscreen is a non-penetrative façade system that incorporates a fast-to-install lightweight flat rainscreen panel, suitable for both new build and refurbishment projects.

The main feature of the system is its flexibility, which allows the installation of the profiles to be carried out in two directions, either from the top down or from the bottom up.

The choice of panel mounting direction is one of the unique benefits, which enables not only easier and faster installation compared to conventional panel systems, but also allows scaffolding or subsequent construction work to be coordinated independently from the installation process. The system’s innovative design and technical capabilities also allow individual sheets to be removed and installed without compromising the adjoining panels or the overall integrity of the façade system.
