ASTURIANA DE LAMINADOS
This rainscreen system is especially apt for flat façades and gently curved façades (in which the panels run perpendicular to the direction of curvature).
It is commonly used to clad soffits.
It presents a solid and formal appearance. It is lightweight, very durable while being low maintenance, and quick and easy to install. The panels can be fixed in a horizontal or vertical direction, and the width of the shadow joint itself can be adjusted slightly, enabling the architect to reduce or emphasise the visibility of the joints as he wishes.
The panels are usually direct-fixed to a supporting structure consisting of the metal rails. The hidden fixing is by way of screws or rivets. It normally uses elZinc thicknesses of 1,0 and 1,2mm.
