RCM has announced its latest acquisition – the Rockpanel exterior cladding, part of the Rockwool group, the world leader in stone wall solutions. Rockpanel is now part of RCM’s extensive portfolio of façades offerings.
The façade is quick and easy to install, easy to maintain, highly cost-effective, and virtually waste-free. The boards could be used as exterior cladding, for applications along the roofline and for building detailing. Each one of them is made from compressed mineral wool from basalt, which is then mixed with a small quantity of organic binder, resulting in a unique board that combines the strength and durability of stone with the workability of wood.
The full range contains eleven products for different applications and finishes: Rockpanel Uni, Rockpanel Ply, Rockpanel Colours, Rockpanel Metallics, Rockpanel Chameleon, Rockpanel Brilliant, Rockpanel Woods, Rockpanel Natural, Rockpanel Stones, Rockpanel Lines 2 and Rockpanel Premium. In addition, all boards are available in various colours and are treated with a 4-layer water-based high quality coating that locks in their appearance, colour and finish for years to come.
“RCM are delighted to be able to offer Rockpanel façades to our customers. It has added a new dimension to our façade portfolio and compliments the already existing range on offer. Rockpanel is made from natural volcanic rock-basalt and offers many benefits. It is as easy to process as wood, the colours remain stable and the material does not delaminate or rot. We look forward to increasing demand for this exceptional façade,” said Ian Quinton, Managing Director at RCM.
RCM has already started supplying the Rockpanel range to various UK based project and is looking forward to expanding its façade range over the coming months.
