About FORMA

The Alumetal facade system consists of panels of different base materials, shape, dimensions and colours mounted on a single support structure. The aesthetic effects created for both new and renovation projects is only limited by the imagination of the designer.

The outer facade or rainscreen is seperated from the main superstructure by a cavity which allows the designer freedom to incorporate thermal insulation and ventilation. The simple erection procedure permits rapid assembly and ease of detailing at junctions with other building elements.

Today, commerical and industrial buildings are not designed and constructed with traditional heavy and labour intensive components. Technology close to Aero and Car production techniques, applied to modren construction as well as practicability dictates that light weight structures are required and each component has to play its part in making an overall compatible design and construction within optimum cost constrants.

Alumetal facades made from a verity of metals, surfaces and colours can be formed into bespoke shapes and sizes in a pre-fabricated format to allow ease of handling on site and speed of erection.

Ventilated Walls
A ventilated wall or Rainscreen is a Cladding System characterised by a cavity between an inner wall and outer cladding which allows the free circulation of air. It is composed of the following elements:
  • External cladding (generally metal) which allow passage of air through system jointing
  • Insulating material externally applied on the inner/supporting wall - which also provides a vapour barrier to the system
  • Upper, lower and other openings for air circulation to the cavity

This technology provides several advantages the most obvious is the protection of the wall from bad weather conditions, from industrial, urban or maritime aggression and from humidity and mould. It increases thermal inertia inside the building and general thermal comfort.

The ventilated wall system is based on the chimney effect. Atmospheric pressure diminishes with altitude, this creates an upwards circulation of air in the cavity, increased by the wind which blows more intensively in the upper level and by day-heating which creates a convective current towards the upper part.

Metal walls reflect heat, so under strong solar heating conditions they protect the building from thermal radiation.

Insulation helps eliminate thermal changes and protect masonry as the walls are not exposed to external temperature variations.

There is a growing need to restore old buildings in order to both extend the life of the building and make them usable and modern in appearance.

ALUMETAL is the ideal instrument to re-design the architecture of old buildings without carrying out important structural changes. Furthermore, masonry repairs are not necessary as the walls are protected from adverse weather conditions.
