Joining Forces

Fairview Architectural North America is excited to announce our new strategic partnership with RHEINZNK America. RHEINZNK has long been known for its architectural appeal and timeless beauty, which directly aligns with Fairview’s track record of having the widest range in colors and finishes available to our customers and project stakeholders.

The collaboration between our two companies stemmed from our growing relationship over the years with Fairview already having use RHEINZINK material on multiple projects. Fairview supplied more than 5,400 sf of Vitrabond zinc composite material (ZCM) on the 70 Charlton St project featuring RHEINZINK prePATINA graphite-grey. This contemporary design by Beyer Blinder Belle has been touted as evoking a “contemporary interpretation of the neighborhood’s printing house architectural heritage by utilizing masonry, metal and glass.” Jerry Fossey, CEO of Fairview Arhcitectural North America said about this project’s design that the “modern architectural aesthetic of the ZCM cladding provides a striking contrast to the historical nature of the brick facade that the surrounding Hudson Square neighborhood is known for.”

The Vitrabond ZCM cladding consists of a Vitrabond aluminium composite panel with a front zinc skin supplied by RHEINZINK. There are two highly durable zinc finishes to choose from providing architects and specifiers with new horizons to explore in terms of design and creativity. All of the zinc finishes can be found in our new Color Design Guide.

Material and Finish Excellence

In addition to its progressive design characteristics, the ZCM also merges the self-healing, corrosion-resistant performance of zinc finishes with the quality and durability of Vitrabond that our clients have come to expect.

Charles “Chip” McGowan, President of RHEINZNK America noted “We’re excited about the increased opportunities that this relationship brings for Fairview and.  Fairview’s approach for incorporating our zinc products into their Vitrabond zinc composite allows us to offer ZCM with an array of completed tests and approvals.”

Vitrabond ZCM also allows Fairview’s fabricator and installer clients to take advantage of the flexibility 4mm metal composite material form factor as well as the familiarity of a traditional rainscreen system while still being able to offer a premium zinc material on each project.
