Tactile Cladding

Our rain screen cladding systems are adapted to support our various cladding materials. All of our systems are open joint, ventilated facades with thermally improved connections and provisions for insulation and air/water barrier behind the insulation. Our metal materials include plate, sheet and cast aluminum, bronze, copper, zinc, porcelain enamel, steel and iron in many textures and finishes. We have developed earthen cladding materials including stone, wood, GFRC, terra cotta and concrete materials that deliver natural warmth and tactile character.

We have developed earthen cladding materials including stone, wood, GFRC, terra cotta and concrete materials that deliver natural warmth and tactile character. We have pioneered the use of high performance composites that cast a modern, edgy character to any project with the use of carbon fiber, FRP and advanced polymers for large cast assemblies. Our glass cladding materials include fritted number one surfaces, embedded and prismatic glass.
