The NBK Terracotta and QuadroClad Aluminium systems that utilise the same dual sub-frame system allowing for easy transition between the Terracotta and Aluminium, giving you even greater design flexibility and allowing for a completely unique design.
NBK Terracotta is a ventilated curtain wall/rain screen system with exposed components made exclusively from terracotta. The systems moves water away from building envelope, using a ventilated and pressure-equalised system. Natural chimney effects not only keep the building dry to reduce maintenance, but also help save energy. The NBK Terracotta support system — a patented development within the NBK product range — comprises a few individual components using 6063-T5 alloy, ensures excellent integration of the system. Qualified NBK engineers design the Support System on a project-by-project basis to accommodate site specific Design, Seismic and wind-load requirements.
Hunter Douglas QuadroClad Aluminium is ventilated rain-screen system. Aluminium honeycomb structure sandwiched between aluminium skin. The external skin is 1.0mm thick, and the internal skin is 0.5mm thick. The skins and honeycomb are bonded together with a durable adhesive to create a panel designed to withstand high pressure and sheer force. The panels are available in a range of sizes up to a maximum of 1550mm wide x 6000mm long. They are also available in thickness of 10mm to 35mm.
