Metalline are delighted to announce they have developed a new aluminium extruded plank system to add to their Unity rainscreen range. Unity X-TRU is a cost effective cladding solution designed with simplicity and versatility in mind, making it the perfect solution for both new builds and the replacement of non-compliant ACM, HPL and timber cladding. The new X-TRU plank is functional with exceptional mechanical properties including strength, durability and fire-resistance and is particularly suited to buildings where dangerous timber cladding is present and needs replacing.
Available in a number of finishes, including wood grain, the X-TRU system is a unique way of transforming the exterior of a building and currently offers designers flat faced interlocking 100mm & 150mm planks. In addition to the wood grain effect finish, the extruded aluminium planks can be supplied in a variety of lengths and a vast array of powder coated or anodised colours to achieve A1 & A2 classifications. The panels offer a desirable fast track install and secret fix, connected by an interlocking male/female joint which can be easily fixed either horizontally or vertically to an adjustable support system. This drained and ventilated system creates a weather shield in front of a primary structure.
