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
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 cassettes can be angled in any direction with varying depths and degree of slope, without the need to modify the substrate or weather barrier.
Used alongside Dri-Design Flat, individual Shadow cassettes can be extended at varying depths to create texture or a dynamic variation in patterns.
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
