Ex­te­rior cladding

Com­pos­ites 1 Weather Ready

Re­sis­tant to graf­fiti and ex­treme weather, Ele­mex’s Cerami­tex fa­cade pan­els are made from fi­bre­glassmesh-re­in­forced ceramic. Avail­able in a va­ri­ety of stan­dard colours, they were re­cently in­stalled on the Canada Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Mu­seum in Ot­tawa, in Arc­tic White (shown). ele­mex.com

2 In­dus­trial Evo­lu­tion

Three ce­ment-in­spired de­signs by ar­chi­tect

Daniel Ger­mani will be added to Dek­ton’s In­dus­trial Col­lec­tion this fall. The new looks will join Nil­ium, Orix, Tril­ium and Ra­dium (the ox­i­dized me­tal ef­fect shown). Suit­able for ven­ti­lated fa­cades – as well as floor­ing, walls and coun­ter­tops – the pan­els are avail­able in sizes as large as 144 by 320 cen­time­tres and up to three cen­time­tres thick. dek­ton.com

3 Fine Grain

Ker­lite has in­tro­duced Ce­ment Project, a col­lec­tion of slim and light­weight ceramic slabs that mimic the ap­pear­ance of poured con­crete. The three sur­face op­tions (shown) in­clude Work, which re­pro­duces the look of board-formed con­crete. cot­todeste.it

4 Var­ie­gated Tex­ture

Rough and rugged new tex­tures (in­clud­ing Crater Ferro, shown) have been added to Rieder’s Con­crete Skin col­lec­tion. With mod­ules formed as round arches, cor­ners or U-cross sec­tions, the sur­faces run smoothly around edges. Pan­els are in­stalled us­ing ad­he­sive and un­der­cut an­chors. rieder.cc

Wood and Stone 1 Clean Slate

Cu­pa­clad slate rain­screen cladding, from Cupa Pizarras, is avail­able with vis­i­ble or in­vis­i­ble fix­ings. The hid­den mount­ing sys­tem op­tions in­clude Ran­dom, a pat­tern of three tile sizes that lends rus­tic char­ac­ter. cu­pa­pizarras.com

2 Flush Mount

Ke­bony’s Pas­sive Rain­screen is in­stalled with a clip-based sys­tem that can be quickly ap­plied over most ex­te­rior en­velopes, even di­rectly over in­su­la­tion. The fas­ten­ers com­bine with durable poly­mer­ized wooden slats to cre­ate a flat sur­face with tight joints. ke­bony.com

3 Be­spoke Shin­gles

To clad the As­plund Pav­il­ion in­stal­la­tion at the 2018 Venice Bi­en­nale, Alpi de­vel­oped an ex­per­i­men­tal shin­gle fea­tur­ing its Xilo 2.0 Planked Grey wood pat­tern. Part of the stan­dard cat­a­logue, the Xilo 2.0 col­lec­tion was orig­i­nally de­signed by Piero Lis­soni and fea­tures vein­ing and fin­ishes in­spired by nat­u­ral wood. alpi­wood.com

Re­flec­tive Sur­faces 1 Mir­ror Wall

New from Nichiha, Mi­raia is a re­flec­tive fi­bre-ce­ment cladding made in three tinted shades, in­clud­ing Onyx (shown). The tiles can be in­stalled via a clip mech­a­nism or on their own, in hor­i­zon­tally stacked or stag­gered pat­terns. nichiha.com

2 Sil­vered Glass

Safety-tem­pered Chan­nel Bronze Sil­vered Glass from Nathan Al­lan is a mir­rored op­tion for ac­cent­ing ex­ist­ing fa­cades and walls. The smooth, bur­nished glass pro­vides pri­vacy and acous­tic in­su­la­tion while still al­low­ing light trans­mis­sion. Pan­els come in a max­i­mum size of 1.5 by three me­tres and in frosted or etched fin­ishes. nathanal­lan.com

3 Me­tal Graph­ics

Eight me­tal fin­ishes make up Pure + Freeform’s Chameleon Col­lec­tion of pearles­cent and iri­des­cent build­ing skins. Fea­tur­ing graph­ics by Mar­cel Wan­ders, the four-by-10-foot printed alu­minum sheets are made of post-con­sumer re­cy­cled con­tent and of­fer a 60-year life­cy­cle for ex­te­rior ap­pli­ca­tions. pure­freeform.com
