Dri-Design - system overview:

  • Facade system based on aluminium cassettes
  • Installs twice as fast as other comparable facade systems
  • Minimum components; only secured by fixing along the horizontal flange top edge
  • High quality aesthetic options
  • very wide range of colours, finishes, sizes and cassette shapes
  • Cassettes types and size easily interchanged
  • No sealants or gaskets required, self-draining gutter, no streaks, low maintenance 
  • Can be installed to substructure (as a part of ventilated facade), as direct fix to the external wall or directly to Karrier panels 

3D facade system

  • 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.

TRULY INNOVATIVE SYSTEM

Lasting Quality and Beauty
The secret of dri-design's success is the interlocking system used to fasten the panels to the structure. It is a patented system that also functions as a superior solution of water management. Thanks to this unique technology, the panels perform flawlessly in the long term. There is no delaminating, streaking or staining associated with silicone sealants, gaskets and laminated competitor products.

Superb Efficiency and Cost Effectiveness
The panels are not the the only intriguing aspect of the system. Kingspan utilizes the latest automation technologies to streamline the manufacturing process of Dri-Design cassettes. Each panel is produced within seconds. The interlocking panel system itself simplifies the install process, making it much faster and more efficient compared to other traditional approaches. As a result, clients benefit from faster cladding lead times and buildings are occupied sooner.

Superior Sustainability
Solid aluminum is 100% recyclable.

Dri-Design rainscreen cassettes

Dri-Design 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.

In majority of Dri-Design projects aluminium cassettes are used. However, on special request other materials such as corten, steel, copper and zinc are also available.

Metals available in Dri-Design

Dri-Design System is available in a range of cassette shapes

Dri-Design Flat

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 Shadow

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 Tapered

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

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.

Manufacturing excellence

Perfection at every stage of the production process

The latest automation technologies are utilized to streamline the manufacturing process and maintain highest quality and precision in every single cassette.
