PREFA aluminium façade systems: Bringing façades to life with aluminium

Discover PREFA façade systems: High-quality façade systems, manufactured in Germany & Austria

A building façade does more than just protect against the elements like snow, rain, wind and sun. When done properly, its heat insulation properties can also help to cut down on energy use. In addition, the cladding used on a façade is key to the character of any building. Choosing PREFA aluminium façade products means getting a high-quality, great-looking and cleverly designed all-in-one system for generations to come – produced in Germany and Austria.

Function and structure of a PREFA façade

Some of the most spectacular constructions of our age have aluminium shells. Which is hardly surprising since aluminium is such a versatile material that is virtually unmatched. Aluminium is a very lightweight and yet solid and durable building material. Corrosion-resistant, recyclable and super easy to work with – behind every PREFA aluminium façade lies a host of outstanding properties.

In addition, all PREFA aluminium façade systems are produced as rainscreens. A system that has stood the test of time for over a century, the rainscreen originated in the harsh environments found in mountain regions, 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 (instead of letting it creep into living spaces as condensation, for example).

In addition to being so robust, PREFA façade systems are also gorgeous to look at and allow almost limitless design combinations. The diverse range of colour and shapes speaks for itself. Whether you’re executing brand new visions or sprucing up older façades but want to keep the existing look, there are no limits to how creative you can get.

Aluminium – Durability, Sustainability

All our PREFA products are made predominantly from secondary, or recycled, aluminium. PREFA systems boast an extremely long lifetime and won’t weather, crack or rust. However, should you ever wish to freshen up your PREFA façade or roof, our products can be sorted according to type, making them easy to recycle – again and again (and again) without ever losing their quality. The light weight of aluminium products also makes for resource-efficient transport and has a positive impact on construction time.
