Rainspan offers even more design possibilities
12th February, 2014
The Eurobond Laminates Rainspan System has been expanded with two new material solutions - Rainspan Ceramic and Rainspan Render. The range is now even wider with choices of colours, materials and textures that open the door to new design possibilities that combine aesthetics, functionality and performance to offer the complete façade solution.
Rainspan Ceramic is a joint development between Eurobond Laminates and partners Telling Architectural. It offers an unsurpassed range of finishes in simulated stone and metallic effects, polished, honed and textured surfaces. The aesthetic of the façade can be optimised with composite mitred corners sections. CWCT test certificates have been gained for both structural bonding and mechanical attachment methods of fixing
RainspanRender is a joint development between Eurobond Laminates and partners Sto. The StoVentec R system provides a ventilated cavity between the exterior of the building and the reinforced carrier board is made from 96% recycled glass granulate and provides excellent weather protection, impact resistance and can even be used to form tight curves.
The cavity is filled with a fire-resistant stone wool board, providing effective external wall insulation. The ventilated cavity means there is no limit on the lightness value of the render finish, allowing even the darkest colours to be used. The system can provide up to 10dB improvement in airborne sound insulation.
The design freedom provided by the new facade systems is perfectly complemented by Rainspan's 'life-of-the-building' warranty.
All Rainspan Systems deliver a fast track construction and the architectural excellence demanded from modern building envelopes. The long span capability can reduce secondary steelwork requirements and build costs. Thermal efficiency helps to reduce the carbon footprint and can help achieve a building's BREEAM rating.
