Equitone rainscreen advantages

Advantages of Equitone Rainscreen

Equitone rainscreen is incredibly fire-safe, with a fire classification of A2-s1,d0. It is sound-insulating, and resistant to extreme temperatures and frost, ensuring that it can withstand harsh weather conditions and maintain its structural integrity over time.

Equitone rainscreen is water-resistant when installed in compliance with the application guideline. This means that it can effectively protect the building from water damage, extending its lifespan and reducing maintenance costs. The panels are also resistant to many living organisms such as fungi, bacteria, insects, and vermin, making it a reliable choice for long-term use. Additionally, the material is resistant to many chemicals, further enhancing its durability and versatility.

Equitone rainscreen is environmentally friendly and does not emit harmful gases, making it a sustainable and responsible choice. The panels are also strong and rigid, ensuring that they provide adequate support and protection for the building.

Equitone Rainscreen Fixing Options

Equitone rainscreen offers two main options for fixing: face fix and mechanical secret fix.

Face fix involves attaching the panels to the facade using rivets or screws that are colour-matched to the panel. This option provides a visible fix and can add a visual element to the design of the facade.

Mechanical secret fix, on the other hand, involves using a hidden system of rails and clips to fix the panels to the facade. This option provides a clean and seamless appearance, with no visible fixings, making it an excellent choice for modern and minimalist designs.
