Sheet metal façade Kalzip®

Sheet metal façade

made of foldable Aluminium

Kalzip foldable aluminium sets new standards for visually attractive façade elevations and meets the highest structural and design requirements from planning to implementation. The unmistakable metallic surfaces minimise glare and reflections and convey a discreet, prestigious building character even on large surfaces. Kalzip foldable aluminium can be processed for metal wall cladding using conventional roofing techniques. The most frequently chosen design is the angled standing seam or a diamond or shingle covering on a ventilated formwork.

The advantages of the metal sheet façade:

  • Freedom of design through almost unrestricted formability
  • Convincing value for money
  • Planning, construction time and cost certainty thanks to simple processing of the material, even at low temperatures without heating
  • Highly corrosion and value-resistant for long-term building protection

Made of foldable aluminium

Kalzip foldable aluminium shingles are lightweight, durable and versatile. Any geometric shape can be realised, whether as a square, rectangle or rhombus. Due to their small size, shingles are also ideal for covering curved or rounded roof and façade surfaces. The shingles are folded by the installer himself. This means that every shingle and every project is unique in its own way. An almost unlimited combination of shapes and sizes offers the planner maximum architectural design freedom.
