Formal STEP is a cladding system made up of custom made panels hook on vertical carrier with pre-spaced hooking points. This system has been conceived to create and cover any flat, curved, conical, linear or three-dimensional architectural element. All finishing components such as windows shielding, corners, lower and upper frames are properly shaped in order to be perfectly integrated with the cladding system. Compared to the SLIDE model, the STEP carriers with pre-spaced pitches make installation phases quickly, after the structure fixing panels can be simply hooked without further adjustments. The special silicone rubber to be applied on the hooking points makes the system stable against vibrations. Nanotechnological coatings, high resolution digital printing, laser cutting, punching, moldings and special Dot-Art perforations make the range of applicable decorations truly unique. Among the cladding systems, Atena Formal represents one of the most complete technical solutions to create ventilated facades with modular elements perfectly taylor made on the building features.
