The challenge

The customer wishes uniform roof and façade cladding made of corten steel cassettes. The joint pattern must be non-uniform. Location, orientation, and architecture of the building are unusual. Planning was performed by the architectural firm biagio lepori, Bellinzona.

The Ecolite solution

Trough-shaped vertical support rails carry the water and allow corten steel cassettes of a wide variety of sizes and shapes to be installed and aligned individually. Corner, terminal, and special elements are made to size on site.

Ecolite products

The following Ecolite products were used:

KA system: Aluminium U brackets, painted support profiles and U support profiles, sliding mounts for various joint widths, suspension bolts and rivets made of V4A stainless steel.
