Shingle is available in various sizes and any polygon shape, providing a distinctive facade solution. It's a cost-effective method as a secondary support/railing solution is not required as standard.

Metals available in Shingle Cassette

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, standard, pearlised and textured.
