Matrix SFM Rainscreen Cladding

The CWCT tested Matrix SFM (Secret Fix with Mullions) rainscreen system is based on Matrix SF but includes mullions for structural support.

Our rainscreen facade systems provide an aesthetically pleasing external envelope solution whilst also offering rapid installation times. PSP provide a comprehensive range of integrated metal rainscreen facade systems that can be adapted to suit specific client needs and provide a solution for almost any building type.

The CWCT tested Matrix SFM rainscreen system is a high tolerance fabricated panel generally supplied in 3mm thick which is dictated by the material type and panel size.

Special features, pressings and louvers can be manufactured from single skin material ensuring it matches that of the panels.

This rainscreen system is ideal for integrating perforations into the panel; these can be designed to integrate anything from uniform lines to random patterns or pictures.

PSP’s Matrix SFM rainscreen system is available in a range of materials such as COR-TEN®, Stainless Steel and Aluminium. The most suitable type of secondary support structure is generally dictated by the panel orientation along with the ability to incorporate thermal and floor movements where required.

This system offers a variety of benefits:
  • Fully tested and accredited rainscreen system to CWCT standards
  • Quick and easy installation to backing structure
  • Allows for a variety of colours and finished
  • Panels can be manufactured in lengths up to 6m
  • Allow for both floor and thermal movements

PSP Hook on System:

The Hook on system can be used for any panel orientation where thermal and floor movement is occurring. The spring loaded offset head dowels allow for these to be inserted anywhere on the rail and do not have to be slid down the whole length. The spring itself will ensure the dowels do not fall to the bottom.

PSP are able to offer a range of support grids to suit most cavity build ups. It is essential that the correct system is utilised to ensure it can allow for thermal and floor movement. It is essential that care is taken when installing the grid to ensure the accuracy require to accommodate the relevant panel system. Accurately fitted grid will ensure a trouble free installation of the panels.
