WRB/Air Barrier: VaproShield; RevealShield SA Self-Adhered (applied directly under a terracotta rainscreen design)

Project Description

Novotel Christchurch Airport is a 200-room hotel designed by Warren and Mahoney Architects. Projected for completion in Fall of 2018, the new-build Novotel hotel features an open-joint bespoke terracotta rainscreen design over RevealShield SA Self Adhered WRB/Air Barrier membrane.

MaxClad primarily selected RevealShield SA Self Adhered to combat the bulk water infiltration typical in open-joint rainscreen designs. RevealShield SA's sleek black appearance was an added benefit, as it blended seamlessly behind the seams of the terracotta panels while providing necessary UV-stability. RevealShield SA Self-Adhered boasts an advanced-technology adhesive that required no primers or special installation equipment, saving installers time and money.

Novotel Christchurch Airport will be the 9th Novotel branded hotel in New Zealand, and joins a global network of over 450 Novotel’s in 61 countries.
