PREFA FX.12 façade panels are innovative design elements that feature a mixture of longitudinal and transverse edging sections, creating a “crumpled” look. The end result is a contemporary and eye-catching surface finish. The appearance changes depending on how the light hits the surface, making every property unique. And the option to use two different panel sizes (FX.12 façade panels in short and long) reinforces the asymmetrical and individual look of your new house façade. For designers and architects with a real creative flair, the façade panels are also available in a wide variety of colours.

A real eye-catcher: the irregular canting of the FX.12 façade panel conjures up lively light effects on your façade. With their irregular surface structure, the aluminium panels constantly change appearance, depending on the position of the sun. But this modern edge effect does more than just look good – it also has a useful function: It increases the strength of the panels, making them even more stable.

But what gives the panels their unique appearance? During production, each piece is embossed in a unique way so that the cant pattern never repeats itself and is always irregular, even on large surfaces. Another special technical feature is the tapered standing seam. This ensures that any lateral expansion acting on the FX.12 is absorbed.

Through the additional canting of the top seam and the pre-cut holes, the FX.12 façade panel can be directly fastened to boarding. This makes the façade panels especially easy to install.

Façades with PREFA FX.12 panelling are installed as a non-bearing, rear-ventilated façade. This allows air to circulate between the PREFA façade cladding and the supporting structure (brickwork/insulation). This ensures that warm air does not accumulate beneath the aluminium façade and therefore no condensation can form.
