Metal cladding for facades

Beautiful and durable facades Facades are a central feature of a building’s architecture. They help create a more pleasing environment. An essential aspect of this is to put forward and implement new and fresh ideas. Our surface cladding systems offer designers many alternatives. Metal can be moulded and formed in many ways to suit many designs, which are a joy to behold. To choose Ruukki is to opt for quality and reliability. Our surface cladding range covers a host of metal cassettes and lamellas, Design profiles and

profile sheets. Different systems can be combined with each other. We deliver precisely dimensioned facades to end users, in which all components and materials work together seamlessly. If desired we can also take charge of facade component design and installation. Facade cladding can be installed in our Thermo-frame elements at the factory. Together with third parties we can look for a variety of alternatives to find the best solution.


Facade lamella Fasetti allows surfaces to be arranged both horizontally and vertically.


Our design profile collection inspires a varied and vibrant surface.

The corrugated profile collection can be used to create both traditional and original surfaces.

A versatile range of cladding materials We offer a wide and varied range of metal claddings for facades. As well as colour-coated steel sheets, our surface cladding can be made from several different metals with a variety of surface treatments. PVDF and PVDF Hiarc colour-coated steel sheets are particularly suited to demanding outdoor uses. PVDF Hiarc is a pearlescent multicolour coating, which changes colour dependant upon the angle at which light reflects from the surface .

PVDF and PVDF Hiarc are compatible with the following facade claddings: • Liberta cassettes • Design profiles • Profile sheets • Fasetti lamellas COR-TEN® steel is a weather-resistant, patinating steel, the surface of which develops a corrosion-resistant patina in contact with air.

COR-TEN® is compatible with the following facades: • Liberta COR-TEN® cassettes • Fasetti H-lamellas • Design Madrid The thin, passive coat on the surface of stainless and acid-resistant steels protects them from corrosion. Stainless and acid-resistant steels do not require surface treatment or rust protection. Over time a layer of oxide forms on the copper, protecting it from corrosion. Copper oxidises in contact with the outside air causing the colour to change. Aluminium, too, is a good facade cladding material.

Facade cassettes – systematic vivacity Our facade cassettes offer a multitude of ways to combine surfaces and colours in a facade. The rhythm of a surface can be varied by using different-sized seams and different cassettes. Our fully refined and precisely dimensioned cassettes are always designed to the measurements of their application, enabling rapid installation. A range of fastening methods and varied cassette forms, such as slanted, curved and corner cassettes open up a world of facade architecture alternatives to the designer. The Liberta facade cassette is a facade system that comes complete with all necessary components. It offers many alternatives. In the Liberta 100, Liberta 102 and Liberta Grande 102 models, the fixings are visible, while on the Liberta 200, Liberta 500 and Liberta Grande 502 they are concealed. Liberta Grande is a large, even cassette option. The stiffened back makes large cassettes, up to 900 x 3000 mm possible. Large cassettes give a facade uniformity and are quick to install. Liberta COR-TEN® is a weather-resistant steel cassette, the surface of which develops a patina over time.
