GreenCoat PLX Pro BT can be curved to suit any traditional roof design and is particularly suited to curved or barrel vaulted roof designs.
The material will self-curve to a radius of 15m but can be formed to tighter curves using specialist equipment that will be familiar to any metal roof installer. GreenCoat PLX Pro BT unique hard wearing yet flexible coating and its ability to be fabricated at temperatures down to -10 C means that the micro cracking of the coating does not occur during bending of the metal.
GreenCoat PLX Pro BT can easily be formed into a variety of facade panels including vertical standing seam panels, shingle (square or diamond) and rainscreen panels (sometimes referred to as cassette or reveal panels).
The unique formability of GreenCoat PLX Pro BT combined with its high strength means that by simply profiling panel edges in a method similar to that used with Zinc or Copper a range of building facades can be achieved. Depending on the desired panel shape and finish the formed panels can usually be installed onto a wood or metal framework.
Using GreenCoat PLX Pro BT gives you the freedom to vary the cassette panels' width, height, length and size of shadow gap (the joint between each panel). This, combined with a choice of diagonal, horizontal or vertical installation and a wide colour palette offers architects and designers endless possibilities to achieve any desired look.
The use of sandwich panels as wall or ceiling material is a creative alternative to walls in profiled sheet and other pre-fabrications. The unit becomes very strong due to the core of cellular plastic or mineral wool with a surface layer of steel sheet glued on both sides of the core allowing it to be used as bearing units on large spans. Sandwich panels can be assembled quickly and provide good heat insulation and air density. Profiled steel for facade cladding is used in many buildings such as, agricultural constructions, warehouses and halls.
