Dri-Design Cassette Options

  •  Flat

  • Shadow

Dri-Design rainscreen facade installs at least twice as fast as comparable systems and can be directly fixed to the external skin of Rainspan or Karrier Panel, or be fixed to tophats to form a ventilated cavity with a tradional construction method. The rainscreen cassette comes in three variations - flat, tapered, and shadow - and can also be perforated.

Dri-Design derives its name from the fact that it requires no sealant or gaskets within its self-draining gutter joints, removing any maintenance requirements across the facade and enhancing the speed and simplicity of installation. 

For buildings with complex designs, high aesthetics or requiring a ventilated façade, Dri-Design cassettes provide fast build, high technical performance solutions.

Dri-Design Flat category image

Dri-Design Flat

Dri-Design Flat can be used on its own and is easily interchanged with the other Dri-Design options. No sealants, gaskets or butyl tape in the cassette joints, means no dirty streaks or legacy of maintenance for the building owner.

Dri-Design  Tapered category image

Dri-Design Tapered

Dri-Design Tapered cassettes can be angled in any direction with varying depths and degree of slope, without the need to modify the substrate or weather barrier.

Dri-Design  Shadow category image

Dri-Design Shadow

Used alongside Dri-Design Flat, individual Shadow cassettes can be extended at varying depths to create texture or a dynamic variation in patterns.

Dri-Design Perforated category image

Dri-Design Perforated

By varying the size, location and density of perforations, areas of light, dark and shades in between are created to form an image. These perforations also allow the cassette to provide needed airflow and/or shade to a structure. Since the images can be created from any digital picture, you are only limited by your imagination

Dri-Design Case Studies


Dri-Design Wall Panels Fast Installation

One of the many secrets of dri-design's success is its interlocking system used to fasten the panels to the structure. This patented system also functions as a superior method of water management. Because of this unique technology, the panels perform flawlessly in the long term, without the delaminating, streaking or staining associated with silicone sealants, gaskets and laminated competitor products.
