Panel Orientation

CERACLAD siding panels are designed to allow both horizontal and vertical applications, providing greater design flexibility for architects. Installers will find that the innovative panel clip system makes installation easy and straightforward no matter what application is chosen.

In order to have an effective rainscreen system, a fully ventilated cladding with openings to the exterior, both at the top and bottom of the wall, is critical. Simply providing an air space behind the cladding is not enough. In addition, tests found that in order to maximize airflow, each story should have a separate air cavity.

Metal “Reveal Joints” may be used in lieu of a caulking joint.
