The Proteus hr honeycomb rainscreen panel system is based on well-proven composite technology which originated in the aircraft industry.

The system, with the incorporation of an aluminium core structurally bonded between two lightweight metal skins offers a range of unique, sustainable features:- Multi metal finishes � Copper / Zinc / Stainless Steel / Aluminium / Steel / Cor-ten

- Permits the use of light gauge skins, reducing metal requirement per m2.

- The reduction of required metal per m2 can significantly reduce building cost.

- A perimeter extrusion captive within the panel reduces wastage of front skin material, and yields optimum panel size design from raw materials.

- Panel thickness is dimensionally variable, enabling multiple spanning capabilities between vertical mullions, thus reducing metal volume within the wall cavity.

- Lightweight, with minimum loads transferring back to structure, allowing minimal structure designs.

- All system components are 100% recyclable.

- Permits the use of large panel sizes - less joints, less cost.

- Exceptional panel flatness.

- High impact resistance.

- The cellular core minimise thermal bow or "Oil Canning"

- Individually demountable panels.

- No set installation sequence required.

- System is fully adjustable.

- Suited for horizontal & vertical cladding.

- Panels can be hinged with locking mechanisms for access.

- NHBC certified

- Tested to CWCT standards for Water Tightness & Wind Resistance.

- Tested to 50 years serviceability.

- Tested to LUL Subsurface Standards

Offering a complete metal facade solution in both flat & curved options, Proteus hr can be applied to both new build and refurbishment projects/overcladding.

The system offers a flush facade with a range of jointing and material options including:

-  Steel: Corten / PVDF / Prisma / Plastisol 
Aluminium: PVDF / Post Coated / Anodised / Polyester
Stainless Steel: All Polishes / ALl Brushed finishes / All Patterned finishes 
Zinc: Natural / Weathered
Copper: Natural / Weathered
