  • Simple, easy assembly

Metal profile cladding systems by RHEINZINK – a real eye catcher

We supply high-quality metal profile cladding systems that can be employed as design elements and create high visual impact even from a distance. However, before you buy new profiled panels, we would like to explain the benefits that RHEINZINK profile systems will bring to your project.

Basically, RHEINZINK supplies two types of metal profile cladding systems that are aimed at different target groups:

  • Corrugated metal profile cladding
  • Trapezoidal metal profile cladding

It is important for us to emphasise the proven quality of RHEINZINK products as these elements are not only creative facade elements, but functional elements as well.

The properties of the individual metal profile cladding products and the benefits they provide are described below.

Corrugated metal profile cladding by RHEINZINK

When working with architectural features, it is always vital to preserve the form and achieve a harmonious impression through continuity of design at crucial points. RHEINZINK corrugated metal profile cladding proves that aspects of design are as significant as functional factors. It is characterised by the flowing form of the typical sine wave which enables it to give otherwise rather bulky utilitarian or functional buildings a more attractive appearance. Corrugated metal profile cladding made by RHEINZINK can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Use the practical range of sizes to incorporate further elements, such as partitions, into the facade design.

These profile systems are a form of rainscreen cladding. Once installed, they create an economical construction facade profile with two different cross sections. They can be used to equip entire buildings with long-lasting weather protection that is both effective and decorative.

Our tip: Rounded surfaces requiring a profile system as the finishing touch can also be easily created using RHEINZINK corrugated metal profile cladding. Please feel free to contact us at any time for further information.

Trapezoidal metal profile cladding by RHEINZINK

If you are looking for metal profile cladding, you are sure to find what you want at RHEINZINK. Our program includes construction profile systems aimed at a wide range of target groups and building types that will be indispensable for completing your project. We recommend RHEINZINK trapezoidal metal profile cladding for angular, clear styles. They can be arranged horizontally, vertically or diagonally and lend any building an air of practicality. Unlike corrugated metal profile cladding, that have a rather subduing effect on sunlight, trapezoidal metal profile cladding can create a range of intensely contrasting effects that can be put to impressive use.

Metal profile cladding systems of this kind can be attached directly to the substructure and so provide effective protection against the weather – in other words, this system is a form of rainscreen cladding. Quick and easy to assemble, this profile system can be used to create wall / facade cladding with a choice of two visible faces. In this way, a calm and orderly structure can be brought to the entire building, depending on how it is positioned in the surroundings.

Metal profile cladding systems – planning and application

System description

  • Horizontal, vertical and diagonal installation

  • Visible attachment

RHEINZINK panel systems are suitable for buildings with a modern, technological appearance, such as commercial or industrial buildings. They can also be used to clad small surfaces such as balcony parapets and are easy to install, long-lasting and available in a variety of designs. They are often used in combination with other types of cladding.

Both trapezoidal profiles and corrugated profiles can be installed horizontally, vertically and diagonally. Either the A side or B side of trapezoidal profiles can be used as the visible face. This results in a wide variety of design options.

Dimensions and metal thickness

The geometry of trapezoidal profiles is ribbed whereas corrugated profiles are shaped like waves. Two different cross sections are available for either version:

  • Trapezoidal profile: T 25/88-700 and T 25/128-768
  • Corrugated profile: W 18/76-836 and W 27/111-778
  • Metal thicknesses 0.8 and 1.0 mm
  • Standard lengths 2000 mm to 4000 mm
  • Max. deliverable length 5000 mm

When directly attached, length variations of the profiles are compensated by limiting the facade panel size to max. 4000 mm and by adjusting the substructure. This applies to applications using multi-part, metal substructures.

The resulting horizontal or vertical joints can be given different designs using, for instance, cornice or pilaster strip profiles.

Corrugated metal profile cladding – customised forms

  • Concave and convex rounded profiles

Corrugated facade profiles can also be used to cover buildings with convex or concave rounded building plans. The radius and profile length are the deciding factors of feasibility.

If using these profiles, please contact your responsible field service consultant.


RHEINZINK profile systems are visibly attached to the metal substructure in the bottom bead using rivets or self-drilling screws. The required spacing of the substructure depends, amongst other things, on the wind load, the type of support structure, the structural system and the load bearing capacity of the cladding and requires appropriate structural analysis.

On request, we can provide information on profile load-bearing capacity and a corresponding wind load table.
