Cassette wall cladding systems benefit from RHEINZINK's sustainable, architectural zinc options and 100-year lifespan

Woburn, Massachusetts (May 2023) – RHEINZINK and its partners offer a choice of architectural zinc materials fabricated into single-skin large-format cassette panels and engineered for installation on façade and wall cladding systems. Projects benefit from the natural metal’s sustainably processed, infinitely recyclable material and a lifespan of up to 100 years or more. The zinc surface responds to its environment with a dynamic patina that evolves through the decades. At the end of its use on a building, the zinc material is 100% recyclable, maximizing cradle-to-cradle benefits.
RHEINZINK’s product range for cassette wall panels includes: RHEINZINK-GRANUM® basalte and skygrey; RHEINZINK-PRISMO® color-pigmented options, and RHEINZINK-prePATINA® ECO ZINC® blue-grey and graphite-grey architectural zinc materials. RHEINZINK-prePATINA ECO ZINC products are produced using 50% less carbon dioxide (CO2). It is the first architectural zinc material in the world to reduce an already small carbon footprint by more than half.
Cassette wall panels made with RHEINZINK’s architectural zinc material are fabricated and manufactured under factory-controlled conditions. The panels are manufactured with 20GA 1.0mm or heavier gauge, sustainable zinc alloy. Larger format panels utilize 16GA 1.5mm RHEINZINK architectural zinc material.
The cassette wall panels are manufactured to fit the structure, which saves labor in the field and eases the installation process. Delivered to the jobsite, the façade contractor installs the panels on an engineered support system with a concealed fastening system. RHEINZINK’s partners also can provide installation support for contractors.
