Rainscreen cladding

Lapitec® slabs are ideal for rainscreen cladding and ventilated systems mechanically fixed. High resistance to high temperatures, frost, UV rays and high-speed wind, makes Lapitec® sintered stone ideal for a long lasting exterior cladding. Lapitec® is also “self-cleaning”, thanks to Bio-Care technology which gives to slabs super hydrophobic properties that facilitate the breakdown of organic compounds. It also guarantees anti-graffiti and anti-polluting properties

Flexibility and freedom for your design

Thickness commonly used in rainscreen facades slabs must ensure resistance to the entire structure. Lapitec® is produced with calibrated thickness of 12 mm, perfect to be mechanically fixed in exterior cladding, offering a lightweight and resistant application. 
Large slabs measuring 3365x1500 mm allow design flexibility for a wide range of architectural applications, with invisible joints even for details and particular shapes.

Colours and finishes for rainscreen cladding

Most commonly used finishes for rainscreen cladding are “Fossil” and “Vesuvio”, offering a coarse surface similar to natural split stone.
A wide range of elegant colours is available to architects and designers who love freedom and flexibility in their designing materials.
