  • The RAL values stated are merely approximate values (~), some of which may differ vastly from the original PREFA colour and, under certain circumstances, may not reflect the subjective perception of the colour. 
  • Above all for colour quality P.10, it is almost impossible to define values due to the surface structure.
  • Plain aluminium: The guarantee does not cover surface appearance alterations caused by processing and environmental influences. Follow the instructions.
  • Metallic colours may vary in shade.
  • To identify exact colours for complementary components please consult original samples.

As a visual highlight, protection of the weather side or as a complete façade cladding, you can design your new exterior wall with the aluminium rhomboid façade tiles according to your individual requirements and choose from numerous façade colours.

We have compiled some tips and ideas for façade design for you here. In our Reference Gallery and Renovation Gallery, you will find further application examples with rhomboid façade tiles.

In addition to the large-format rhomboid façade tile 44 × 44, we have two other smaller rhomboid tiles in our product range: the rhomboid façade tile 29 × 29 is indirectly fastened with clips and the rhomboid façade tile 20 × 20 is directly fastened.

This image of a pre-school in Stockholm shows the new façade with large windows and a flat roof. The exterior façade was clad with the rhomboid façade tile 20 x 20 in brown.

If you are interested in an aluminium façade from PREFA, contact a PREFA partner company near you directly. To do this, use our tradesman search on the website.

PREFA is not a rendered façade. It is a high-quality aluminium façade which is installed as a non-bearing, rear-ventilated façade.

Fears of rusting are completely unfounded because aluminium cannot rust. If the surface of the PREFA aluminium façade is damaged, a new protective oxide layer is formed and the durability of the PREFA façade remains unchanged.

PREFA façades are installed as non-bearing, rear-ventilated façades. This means that there is a gap for rear ventilation between the aluminium façade cladding and the insulation. In summer, the hot air cannot accumulate behind the façade because it rises through the rear ventilation and is transported away. In the winter, this structure provides thermal protection, as the heat transfer resistance is increased in the rear-ventilated space. This temperature buffering in the rear-ventilated space ensures a comfortable indoor climate all year round.

The PREFA façade is the outermost protective layer of your house and simultaneously serves as a visual design element to improve the look of your home. Not only is it nice to look at, it also protects your home from the weather. In addition, durable PREFA aluminium cladding protects the underlying layers (supporting structure, insulation and substructure) from the effects of the weather. Owing to the fact that your PREFA façade is particularly weather-resistant, you can enjoy its beautiful appearance for decades.

It should be noted that PREFA façade products must not be confused with sandwich panels or other products with integrated insulation, as they are exclusively specialised for the functions mentioned above (protection and visual design). If you would also like to have a high-quality aluminium PREFA façade, the skilled workshop will be able to provide you with a suitable substructure and, if desired, suitable insulation in addition to improving the appearance of your home with PREFA façade cladding.

All PREFA aluminium façade systems are produced as rainscreens. A system that has stood the test of time for over a century, and also has a positive impact on the indoor climate thanks to its special structure. Air is allowed to circulate between the masonry and the PREFA façade, wicking away any occasional moisture behind the metal façade.
