Corten® - Interlocking
Corten® is a unique cladding material that creates an industrial aesthetic; Interlocking is an elegant profile that creates modern aesthetics.
Interlocking is a profile suitable for wall cladding only. It uses a concealed fixing system and can be roll formed in all materials. Being a rather elegant system, interlocking utilises modern profile designs to create modern aesthetics. Panels can be placed vertically, horizontally or diagonally, have the option to be curved and are installed with concealed screws and clips, creating deep express joints perfect for dramatic facades.
Some of its advantages include:
- Smooth, clean finish, with no visible fixings
- Minimal maintenance
- Ability to taper panels
- To reduce the chance of wind stress on high wind load applications, Polystyrene can be placed behind each panel
Corten® is a steel made up of a group of steel alloy materials which, when left uncoated and exposed to the natural elements, develops a rusted appearance. It is twice the strength of mild steel and can give buildings an industrial feel that is now very common in modern architecture. Corten®’s strength is visible in the fact that it can be cut and shaped in many ways whilst still maintaining its strength and rigidity.
