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

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 rainscreen facade from Kingspan New Zealand

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.
