Made from recycled paper and a non-petroleum resin, the cladding is environmentally conscious and incredibly hardwearing. It is resistant to rain and UV rays, making it suitable for rainscreen and other environmentally-conscious applications.

Perforated and embossed, the sheeting creates an ever-evolving, “living” facade. It can be used as screening or secondary cladding and in copper as its natural (and eventual patinaed) coloring or in treated variations ranging in colors that pass through the various stages of oxidation.

SELF-CLEANING AND SUSTAINABLE FACADE
Neolith + Pureti

This facade system is treated with an aqueous and titanium dioxide nanoparticle-based treatment, which creates a photocatalytic, self-cleaning, and decontaminating effect. Put simply, the photocatalysis-activated coating is accelerated by light, decontaminating the surface millions of times per second. As a byproduct, the autonomously cleaned cladding also improves air quality.

Undulating and virtually seamless, the 3-D surface can morph into almost any shape imaginable. By the means a thermal-forming technology, it can be produced in varying levels of transparency and countless colors.

CEDAR AND ASH ARCHITECTURAL PANELS
Nichiha

Nichiha developed two new colors—redwood and ash—for fiber cement cladding collection inspired by the look and feel of natural wood panels. The red and gray tones add the perfect notes to complement both commercial and residential projects.
