Central is able to offer a wide range of roofing and cladding options, for both the new build and refurbishment markets. Correctly specified, a rainscreen cladding system will provide insulating properties whilst controlling water, wind and fire.
The primary driver for a rainscreen cladding system is usually down to the visual impact of the building. But the desire for aesthetics has to be combined with performance, waterproofing the building and contributing to the overall thermal performance.

Centrals product range of external facade options ranges from the simple recessed fix metal trays through to more complex and bespoke systems. Pressed metal panels are available in fully secret fixed systems, utilising either cassette or hook-on type joint details.
There are three main types of rainscreen cladding /external wall cladding systems that they can supply:
Full Envelope Systems
Central is able to offer contractors a full envelope systems.
The system comprises the following products:
• CFF 32/1000 roof and cladding sheet
• CFF 19/1000 liner sheet
Some building types may be subject to condensation forming on the underside of the roof, such as an un-insulated warehouse or agricultural building and to reduce the chance of dripping water within a building environment, profiled sheets complete with anti-condensation fleece can be supplied.
Curved Sheets Barrel Vault
The CEN-R 32/1000 roof profile will self-curve down to a minimum radius of 40.000 meters. Below this radius, the sheets will require 'crimping' in order to achieve the required curve radii. The more crimps, the tighter the curve.
The maximum sheet length available for this type of curve is 6.000 meters. Therefore, when more than one sheet is required to cover from eave to eave, it is recommended that one sheet sits at the 'apex' of the roof, to create a lap of minimum 4 degrees, with the remaining sheets fitted either side.
Deliveries are made daily throughout the UK from the extensive stock range which allows Central to offer short lead times of normally around 7 days from receipt of cut lengths.
