Dri-Design rainscreen facade installs at least twice as fast as comparable systems and can be direct fix or form a ventilated cavity. The rainscreen cassette comes in three variations plus can be perforated. Stackbond or Stretcher Bond patterns, horizontal or vertical orientation, designers can achieve patterns that are easily interchangeable without the need for complicated rail and bracket systems. Dri-Design is available in a wide range of colours, finishes, textures and five different natural metals.* Dri-Design with QuadCore Karrier has been tested to BR135/BS8414, find out more

* (Aluminium currently avaliable, corten, steel, copper and zinc avaliable soon)

Aluminium with polyester powder coating is classified to EN13501-1/2: A2-s1,d0 
Anodized aluminium is classified to EN13501-1: A1
Corten is classified to EN13501-1:A1
Stainless steel is classified to EN13501-1:A1

Aluminium can be fully recycled and used for the production of new material.
Corten Due to the nature of the steel, rainwater run-off may cause staining due to the rainwater partially washing away the rusted surface. Therefore, special design and drainage consideration should be taken to ensure that the rain water run-off is channelled into a specific route to ensure that the contaminated rainwater does not cause any staining.
Stainless steel is highly recyclable and can be continually recycled without any degradation of the material properties or performance. There is little to no run off and no contamination from stainless steel resulting in little or no pollution.


Metals available in Dri-Design

Aluminium alloy 3103 H22 available in a factory applied post powder coated and anodised finish. Also grade 5005 H34/J57S as required.

Corten a weathered steel is a weather resistant steel created by alloying copper, chromium and nickel and adding phosphorous which makes the material best suited for aesthetic fascias. The top layer of the material reacts with atmospheric elements to form a rust coloured protective layer which not only makes the steel virtually maintenance free but also creates a striking aesthetic appearance.

Stainless Steel material is available in a large selection of patterned finishes allowing a large flexibility of design choice. The patterning process increases the strength and rigidity of metal enabling lighter gauges to be used.



When a design demands colour and tone, Kingspan Facades has a vast palette of choice. Aluminium can be coated in any RAL or BS colour, with coatings that can replicate more expensive metal options.

We have hundreds of options from metallic and standard to pearlised and textured.
