Rainscreen Cladding System
Sto Corp. is launching its StoVentec ventilated rainscreen cladding system in the United States. Available in both glass and render finishes, StoVentec provides designers with a range of aesthetic choices and the ability to achieve distinctive looks for building façades.
StoVentec Glass is an elegant design solution comprised of glass-faced composite panels, thermal insulation and robust sub-construction. Manufactured individually, the panels come in a variety of shapes and custom colors. The colors are fused into the glass so that the panels will not wear, scratch, fade or incur water damage. Widely adopted in Europe, StoVentec Glass works well as either an external cladding with the sheen of a reflective surface or as an internal decorative option for lobbies, elevator banks and branded entranceways.
The StoVentec Glass system can be mounted on virtually any substrate. The panels are factory produced with a horizontal “agraffe” fixing-rail and hung from the subconstruction on-site, promising a fast and simple installation regardless of weather conditions.
The StoVentec Render ventilated rainscreen system provides an ideal balance of artistry, economics and performance, employing Sto’s range of specialty finishes to achieve a multitude of decorative looks, from heavy grits to ultra-smooth surfaces and variegated color palettes, to uniform vibrant colors utilizing Sto’s HP Colorant System.
StoVentec Render’s layered system is made up of a sub-construction of steel and aluminum brackets, mineral wool thermal insulation board, render carrier board, reinforcement plaster, reinforcement mesh and Sto textured finish.
