QC500® | QUADROCLAD HONEYCOMB
The QuadroClad® façade system is a unique, open-jointed cladding system based on the principles of rainscreen façade technology. The lightweight skins are fused to a honeycomb aluminium core that provides extreme panel strength and flatness. They are engineered to deliver both outstanding looks and excellent functionality, QuadroClad® panels and components have been designed to perform in even the most challenging of environments and have been independently tested for corrosion resistance, fire resistance and wind-load performance.
QuadroClad® QC500 is our COMPLETE system and as its name suggests is our most complete façade solution. It is an ideal external wall finish for larger elevated buildings such as high rise residential buildings and skyscrapers exposed to extreme weather conditions. QC500 features free hanging panels with a ventilated cavity, with open joints that are designed to reduce surface wind loads. Tall buildings by their very nature require a different level of technical specification and Hunter Douglas Architectural have developed a unique patented method of installation (including wall brackets, support rails and fixing plates) to meet these building’s requirements.

Material, Finishes & Surfaces
Buildings are defined by form and design. Often they are the product of an architects inspirational vision. At Hunter Douglas our mission is to help designers realise that vision, by providing them with a palette of colours, materials and surface finishes that will inspire their creativity.
Health and wellbeing
Hunter Douglas contributes to sustainable buildings through aesthetic solutions that enhance comfort and save energy. Promoting health and wellbeing of their occupants is arguably the most important function of buildings. Buildings are not constructed just to be energy efficient. Our shading solutions promote the use of healthy daylight without the hindrances of glare and thermal discomfort. Our acoustic ceilings are a key element in the provision of acoustic comfort.
Environmentally sound materials are key to sustainable buildings. Our strategy is to pick materials that have good environmental properties to start with. Many of our products are made of aluminum produced in our own smelters. We’ve optimized our processes to use up to 99% of recycled content to produce the right alloy for our products. Our wood is FSC certified and we embrace the Cradle to Cradle principle in our product development.
Reducing the energy use of the total building stock is key to the prevention of global warming. Most modern office buildings use more energy for cooling than heating. Effectively managing the solar energy that passes through the transparent part of the façade is a key strategy in the prevention of overheating in both old and new buildings. Our high performance shading solutions bring substantial energy savings, while at the same time promoting health and wellbeing.
