Optima Casstte Rainscreen is a cost effective ventilated and drained, interlocking cassette cladding system, showing a 20 mm joint between panels.

System features:

  • Developed and manufactured in accordance with CWCT guidelines.
  • Does not support combustion.
  • Components meet the requirements of Class 0 fire performance in accordance with Building Regulations.
  • NHBC and LPCB accredited including a red book entry.

Support and fixing system:

A fully adjustable system of cleats and carrier profile offers a 'hands free' lining and levelling facility for cladding zones from 100–320 mm; consequently, small irregularities in the substructure are not significant, and a simple arrangement of preformed top hat sections or timber battens can be used. Isolation of the structural bracket and fixing reduces thermal transmittance to a negligible level. Panels are fixed using wafer head, self-tapping stainless steel screws through pre-punched holes.

Consult Sotech regarding structural restrictions, and constraints relating to panel size, fastener type and frequency of fixings.
