Imola Porcelain rainscreen systems are designed for use as a decorative and protective façade over external walls of buildings. The system consists of pressed porcelain plate fixed to vertical aluminium rail supports. Imola is available in a wide range of colours and textures.

Features:

  • Imola porcelain, fired at 1200ºC, creating a consistent quality plate of optimum accuracy in thickness, profile and flatness.
  • Plates are polished, matt, or embossed to provide a very low porosity and thereby protection for the façade from airborne dirt and chemicals.
  • Junctions between the tiles incorporate are open and reliant upon pressure equalisation for performance.

Standard product features

Type:

Drained and back ventilated.

Framing system:

  • A system of vertical aluminium carrier rails, pre-punched to suit the vertical module of the selected tiles.
  • Tiles are fixed to the aluminium carrier rails with concealed stainless steel clips (fulfilling the AISI 304 Norm).
  • The carrier rails are suitable for use on a variety of sub-structures including blockwork, timber, concrete and steel.
  • Dependent on the individual requirements of the project, insulation can be fitted within the cavity between the substructure and the rear face of the tile. Projection of the support system is dictated by the thickness of the insulation and the requirement for a minimum unimpeded ventilating cavity of 30 mm.
  • The support systems are designed to withstand stresses and loads imposed by wind, structural deflections and seismic movements, and will be tested to meet all criteria and building codes.
