A Perfect Finish with MetSkin

Vivalda launches MetSkin, a new aluminium cladding system for residential high rise or municipal projects.

Vivalda Group, the UK’s largest distributor of rainscreen facades, has expanded its product range to include MetSkin, a new, UK designed and manufactured solid aluminium cladding system. Supplied as a whole tested and warranted system, MetSkin is manufactured within the group by MSP Façade Solutions, which has more than 30 years’ experience in high performance cladding production.

Available in Interlocking Plank (2mm thickness), Hook-on Cassette (3mm thickness) or Tray Panel (3mm thickness) Systems, MetSkin is fabricated using premium grade, non-flammable, solid aluminium sheet. Once formed, this is then powder coated on-site to globally recognised Qualicoat standard. This chrome-free, environmentally friendly process is undertaken by sister company Prism Powder Coating, which has also gained Akzo Nobel approved applicator status.

In addition to being available in more than 740 RAL colours, MetSkin can also be supplied in an anodised finish or PVDF pre-coated aluminium, providing architects and specifiers with limitless creative possibilities.

Andy Thomas, trading director at Vivalda Group, said: “MetSkin represents an important step for us, adding the manufacture of a fully tested system to our established business as the UK’s biggest cladding distributor. While we are already well-known by contractors for the supply of world-class, non-flammable cladding materials including fibre cement, GRC, terracotta and solid aluminium, it’s exciting to be able to provide customers with our own fully approved and tested envelope system.

“We see a significant market for this product in the UK, on both new build and retro-fit developments. We have worked hard during the two-year development phase to create a complete solution for architects and specifiers – matching existing colours or helping them bring to life their latest vision. For contractors, this means that we supply a total A-rated, tested system, including fixings, rails and ancillary products such as membranes and insulation as required.

“We’ve designed MetSkin with creativity in mind, which allows the use of various substructure configurations, without compromising on the safety or aesthetics of the façade. We’ve also not forgotten about contractors and made our system easy to order and easy to install.”

MetSkin is now available and is being distributed exclusively through the Vivalda Group, which includes Vivalda, BBS Facades and Pura Facades.
