Rainscreen cladding: terracotta, glass, stone, ceramic
Terracotta cladding gives you outstanding aesthetic appearance with lasting vibrancy of colour and excellent resistance to water penetration, making this a reliable and adaptable façade. Aliva’s Grescovering terracotta rainscreen cladding system has simple aluminium support structures that are designed to ensure the easy removal of panels from anywhere in the façade. Clay tile formats range up to 600mm by 3000mm and can be fired in an infinite range of colours and tones.
Glass cladding offers you a clean, durable, easily-maintained and visually stunning finish that will turn heads whatever the location of your building. Aliva’s glass rainscreen cladding is available in a huge range of colours. There are an extensive range of colours, designs, shapes and sizes, with a variety of systems available to suit bespoke projects, made up of lightweight sandwich panels, structurally bonded with 3M adhesives and laminated systems using either a PVB or SGP interlayer with mechanical anchors.
Stone cladding has a natural elegance that gives it a timeless quality. It is also the natural choice for contemporary buildings that are required to harmonise with their surroundings in conservation areas. Aliva’s stone solutions range from traditional 40mm stone rainscreen to lightweight large format panels. The company work with key quarries around the world to source limestone, granite and marble stone cladding.
Ceramic cladding is exceptionally durable and strong, and free from the flaws that can weaken quarried stone in its original state.
