VM Zinc has become the first UK supplier to receive BRE certification for its zinc interlocking panel façade systems (BRE137/07). The system, which is available in five colours uses a pre-weathered process to provide an aged patination.

It is designed for use as an open jointed, drained and back ventilated cavity rainscreen façade or overcladding, on buildings where designed wind loading does not exceed approximately 2kN/m². As a further aid to specification, 160 online CAD downloads have been made available in .DWG or pdf format.
