RHEINZINK’s premium prePATINA products are now part of its ECO ZINC offering, making it the first architectural zinc material in the world to reduce an already small carbon footprint by more than half. Using renewable energy sources including water and wind power, ECO ZINC material production generates significantly less CO2 than any other architectural zinc manufacturing process. The zinc is 100% recyclable and offers Cradle to Cradle certification to help teams meet both the U.S. and Canada Green Building Councils’ LEED criteria.

Beach House Shake
Tando Composites

Tando Composites’ Beach House Shake offers a composite shingle technology as an alternative to high-demand natural cedar shingles. The shakes replicate the authentic look of real cedar shingles without cedar’s natural photodegradation due to sunlight. Beach House Shake is available in four styles: Atlantica, a silvery gray reminiscent of bleached cedar shingles; Sandcastle, a fresh white cedar; Hatteras, a deeper gray found in southern coastal regions; and Pacifica, a fresh western red cedar shingle. Beach House Shake is certified for high-velocity hurricane zones by Miami-Dade County.

The Wood Veneer Hub

An extension of the brand’s best-selling interior slat panel series, these new exterior panels encapsulate the essence of mid-century and Scandi-inspired architecture that will weather all conditions. Slatpanel exterior composite slat wall panels feature a 3D wood grain surface and an easy-to-install, tongue-and-groove assembly to ensure a neat finish with no visible fixings. Crafted to withstand the harshest of elements, the panels are waterproof with a durable polymer coating and are available in oak, walnut, gray, and black color options.


ABKSTONE slabs are among the largest porcelain tiles available on the market, measuring just over 5′ by 10′. Produced with dry compaction techniques and fired using the latest generation of ceramic kilns, ABKSTONE can withstand extreme weather conditions and will never fade or crack, even when subjected to harsh UV rays and frost. An ideal solution for creating energy-efficient ventilated rainscreen facades, the slabs come in twenty-four styles including marble, stone, concrete, metal, and wood. The slabs are available in 6 mm, 12 mm, and 20 mm thicknesses.
