Kingspan Insulated Panels continues to deliver fast build, architectural, high-performance building envelope solutions with the launch of BENCHMARK Dri-Design.
An innovative and high quality metallic rainscreen façade solution, Kingspan BENCHMARK Dri-Design is manufactured using world leading automated machinery.
Available in a range of cassette types and geometries, coupled with various material types and ancillary components, the Dri-Design façade system accommodates a wide scope of design possibilities.
The range includes four cassette designs: Flat, Tapered, Shadow and Perforated, providing architects with a variety of options that enable projects to be built at speed without compromising on design versatility, building performance or high aesthetic values.
Dri-Design cassettes are available in highly durable PPC or anodised aluminium, stainless steel, weathered steel, zinc or copper, in a range of shapes and sizes.
Able to be installed at least twice as fast as most comparable systems, Dri-Design is suitable for direct fix or ventilated cavity construction methods. A clean, easy to maintain finish is achieved without the use of sealants, gaskets or butyl tape in the cassette joints.
Dri-Design Flat cassettes deliver sleek, streamlined finishes without the need to modify the substrate or weather barrier.
Dri-Design Tapered cassettes can be angled in any direction with varying depths and degree of slope. This freedom to design each specific cassette provides an unlimited capacity to create a dynamic, one-of-a-kind surface on nearly any façade.
As with all Dri-Design, the Tapered cassette is a patented design that installs much faster than most similar systems. There are no seals or gaskets so it is easily maintained.
Dri-Design Shadow cassettes add depth and definition to any architectural design. Individual panels can be extended at varying depths to create texture or a dynamic variation in patterns, all while keeping the substrate and weather barrier in the same plane.
Aluminium Dri-Design Flat, Tapered and Shadow cassettes can be perforated to create complex images. By varying the size, location and density of the perforations, areas of light, dark and shades in between are created to form an image. Ideal for projects that require airflow or shade, design possibilities are endless using digital imaging technology.
BENCHMARK Dri-Design provides architects with a high performance, durable rainscreen façade solution that can bring design vision to life.
