Rainscreen Cladding U-value Insulation

U-VALUE ASSESSMENT

The use of a Rainscreen Facade provides an opportunity to achieve low U-values. InOpera Facades can provide early design stage guidance as to the performance of your Rainscreen Facade. We  provide detailed U-value calculations in accordance with BS EN 10211 / BRE 443 Convections for U-values by project.

We use the support system setting out to determine the heat loss through the construction and model it three dimensionally. This allows us to confidently ensure the chosen through wall build up do not effect the designed asthetic.
