CEI Materials Adds New Expansive HPL And In House INOVEZE Product Lines
With the trending evolution from monolithic building design to a more varied and geometric look, architects began seeking more versatile façade solutions. In response to the growing need for such materials, HPL was created.
High-Pressure Laminates (HPL) are a highly adaptable and durable decorative cladding material commonly used in Europe. Used on both the interior and exterior, the panels come in a wide variety of innovative colors including; solids, wood grains, stones, textures, and metallics.
Often these panels have more color versatility than other cladding options and can be used to create colorful mosaics. Typically, these products are utilized in a variety of thicknesses, creating a more dimensional and robust look.
For exteriors, the material has a plethora of applications from façade cladding, sunscreens, soffits, canopies and many more. Due to the panel’s composition, the material is extremely durable to environmental deterrents such as water and UV radiation. The material contains a pore-less, uniform surface, drastically reducing the need for cleaning as it can withstand dirt accumulation.
For installation drained back ventilated rainscreen systems are commonly used. They can be installed in a horizontal or vertical application and come in both exposed and concealed fastener attachment systems.
