StoVentec™ Glass Rainscreen® systems combine proven performance and durability with the beauty and allure of glass. Taken together, the solution provides superior weather tightness, thermal performance, fire protection and the kind of compelling aesthetic designers seek.
Stunning, Durable Color
StoVentec™ Glass panels feature a proprietary and super-resilient substrate to which back-painted and tempered glass panes are permanently bonded. Color will not wear, scratch, fade or incur water damage. Choose from 63 standard colors, or a broad selection of custom colors. Or the panels may be digitally back-printed with custom imagery to create a truly one-of-a-kind signature facade.
Unique Shapes and Patterns
The design flexibility of StoVentec™ Glass extends the remarkable appearance possibilities of glass facades. Panels can be supplied in square, rectangular, trapezoidal and parallelogram shapes and can be designed to incorporate LED lighting and other effects.
Multiple glass panels can be bonded to the same StoVentec™ Carrier Board, to create unique stripes or patterns, while keeping installation easy.
StoVentec™ Render employs the same key components as StoVentec™ Glass to deliver superior performance. Render façade panels are field installed, flexible and easy to cut, making it simple to achieve unique architectural shapes including seam free curved surfaces. Sto’s wide variety of architectural finish systems, including unique StoSignature options, provide the broadest range of aesthetics available in a rainscreen system, allowing designers to create unique walls that perform seamlessly.
