Abstract: The Ductal® rainscreen cladding solution is a new development designed to meet the specific requirements needed for a variety of different buildings. In order to validate a technical assessment in France for a rainscreen cladding panel, several tests and calculations have to be done on the complete system (fastening and panel) by the CSTB: seismic test, shock test, wind resistance test, fire test and a calculation of the seismic influence on the anchors. For example, the mechanical performance of Ductal® UHPC gives the panels a good strength and impact resistance. With a specific constructive design, the panels and fastening can withstand until 400J with a soft body and 10J with a hard body. This paper discusses the development of the new Ductal® rainscreen cladding solution, how it can be integrated in an External Thermal Insulation system and the tests done for technical assessment in France.
