Easy to work with
Gérard Chiocchia, manager of the General Façades company (GFC): “This is the first time that we have worked with Rockpanel facade boards. It was an architect's choice that we adopted very quickly. The boards are flexible, easy to cut and easy to work with on site. Initially, we worried a little about the curved parts, but that quickly ended because the coating proved to be solid. For us, it was really the right product for this job and we will not hesitate to praise its qualities to our customers."
A flexible solution, designed to resist
As the building is exposed to both the strong winds in the coastal area and to high thermal and hygrometric amplitudes, the decorative facades designed by the architect required materials capable of accommodating all of these factors.
Mainly made of basalt rock, the Rockpanel boards offer a very high dimension stability and exceptional durability while being sufficiently flexible. These qualities, combined with the know-how of the installation contractor, made it possible to meet all the specifications for this project.
Tested against the elements, the Rockpanel cladding solution also fully met the requirements for installation in seismic zones and the need for resistance in the event of fire, a priority issue to which Rockpanel is committed.
