New manufacturing methods have made cladding and paneling more structurally sound and less cumbersome to install. These systems are highly customizable and are made to last from season to season.
Apollo II CertainTeed
These all-black shingles generate energy without the bulky infrastructure that typically accompanies solar panels. Simply installed directly on the roof, the environmentally conscious system can be employed on new and existing structures.
Marmi Maximum Imperial White Fiandre
Fiandre’s engineered tiles emulate the bold veining that occurs in marble. Unlike the natural stone, these porcelain slabs are lightweight and resistant to stains and wear and tear.
GRP SIDING Technowood
Made from fiberglass-reinforced polyester, this panel system is designed to withstand the weight of the most taxing structural applications. To fulfill the most decorative requirements, the siding is available in six natural wooden tones and seven varnished colors.
StoVentec Glass Sto Corp.
These glass-faced composite panels create a decorative reflective surface that provides thermal insulation. Made to order, each panel is offered in a variety of sizes, shapes, and custom colors.
These fiber cement panels highlight the sanding production process with surfaces characterized by an undulating coarse grit. It will be available to specify in June upon its release in the U.S.Porcelain Open-Joint Cladding Solutions Porcelanosa Facades Porcelanosa’s facade system incorporates all the colors and textures from its interior porcelain surfaces (including wood, concrete, stone, technic, or metals) for the building envelope. The system prevents moisture build-up and heat transfer via a ventilated air cavity directly behind the panels.
At 1017 Sierra Bonita, for example, Manferdini uses blue, white, and black Trespa panels, custom fritted glass, and gray stucco to lend a three-story apartment block atmospheric qualities. Hanging plants and balconies filled with hedges and landscape design by Green Republic Landscapes further dematerialize the five-unit building.The Trespa panels make another appearance in red, blue, and black at 1408 Poinsettia, where Manferdini has arranged ascending striped patterns with vertical building elements that camouflage each of the three-bedroom small-lot subdivision homes. At 1139 N. Detroit, Manferdini pursues a more subdued approach by using custom-designed mosaic tiles and painted stucco. In each of the projects, Manferdini works to play off of the architectural elements using unconventional patterning and color choices, perhaps a welcome approach for Hardie-panel weary observers. The designs are due to come online soon: Many of the projects are currently undergoing planning review, and 1408 Poinsettia is currently under construction.
Even the highest performing facades can be undone by gaps or by under-utilizing insulation. Weather and air barriers have expanded to fill a variety of niches, from eco-friendly insulation to ready-to-install sealant.
Rizza Partition Closure System Balco
This compression seal is perfect for vertical junctures and joints between the ends of partitions, curtain walls, and glazing. It measures 100 feet in length, reducing multiple splicing, and is made from 100 percent silicone—making it an effective solution for sound/vibration transmission, thermal transfer, and dirt/dust infiltration.
Spectrem Restoration Overlay Tremco
Sloped glazing can be difficult to maintain, but this UV-resistant overlay provides superior protection against air and water leakages. Instead of having to completely replace degraded sealant, this gasket system is easy to install, has a high tolerance for temperatures, and can be color-matched.
AFB evo ROCKWOOL
Available in thicknesses of 1 to 6 inches, AFB evo meets all of the same specifications of the original ROCKWOOL AFB, while also conforming to sustainability standards such as LEEDv4. This light-weight batt insulation contains no added formaldehyde and is a great choice for schools and hospitals.
Air-Bloc 16MR Henry
A fire-resistant air and vapor barrier applied as a liquid, Air-Bloc includes anti-microbial properties to create a mold-resistant membrane when set. Once cured, Air-Bloc forms a tough, rubber-like barrier without any seams, and can be applied in temperatures as low as 2o℉.
[SPONSORED] Humanscale Coming soon from Humanscale Design Studio: Summa – a new movement in conference seating.
AN found the latest additions that offer aesthetic sensibility, new advancements in materials and technology, and solutions for both passive and active design strategies.
TEXTURED CLADDING Paperstone
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.
TECU DESIGN_PUNCH KME Architectural
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.
FLOWTECH BY FLOOR GRES Florim
Giving an industrial look, Flowtech offers industrial-resilience to humidity, general wear and tear, and other weather-oriented impairments. The metal sheathing comes in fives sizes and in three neutral color variations.
The vertical 3-D wall sheathing is mounted invisibly by clips, horizontally positioned and supported by the structure underneath. It is available in custom profiles, even for curved and organic-shaped applications.
3D WALL PANEL Corian Design
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.
M.LOOK NCORE FunderMax
Reinforced with metal fibers, these heavy-duty architectural facade panels are equipped to with a weather-resistant decorative finish. The adorned layer protects and surrounds the non-combustible mineral core that is resilient to fire and heat threats.
