The new bi-directional Kalzip FC Façade System is stylish, non-penetrative and extremely costeffective. Installed on vertically fixed modular click rails, each lightweight panel is simply hooked at the top and then clicked into place at the bottom - quick, easy and ingenious.

Kalzip FC Façade's innovative bi-directional installation capability (top down / bottom up) allows flexible project scheduling where on-site requirements such as scaffolding or subsequent construction work can be coordinated independently of the fixing process.
 
No rivets or screws are used - and in the event of future damage or desire to change the façade's appearance, the system allows individual panels to be replaced quickly and easily without affecting adjacent components which negates the costly task of renewing the entire façade.
