Developed by Ciprés-Group together with the architect Julian Franco, SCLIC is a lightweight modular cladding system for facades that is installed from the interior of the building. It consists of a self-supporting structural panel that forms the principal layer of the building envelope, with the capacity to support any facade system or exterior cladding material. SCLIC is installed from the interior of the building by just two laborers, with limited auxiliary means and wihtout exterior scaffolding.
The standard panel has a galvanized steel structure with a fiber cement panel on the outside face, two layers of fireproof and waterproof gypsumboard on the inside face and a core filled with thermal and acoustic insulation.
The standard panel weighs 85 kg and is 11 cm deep.
The industrialized system permits shop prefabrication of much of the element. The system is mounted in parallel with the erection of the building structure, thanks to the simplicity of the installation. The reduction in weight and its influence on the structure, the limited auxiliary means required and the reduced construction time make SCLIC a highly cost-effective system, especially for tall buildings.

Sclic used as the main element and rainscreen facade with two types prefabricated panels.
The system permits a simultaneous construction process: as the building structure is erected, the facade can be installed and work on the interior can proceed.

A. Fiber cement panel.
B. Insulation core.
C. Fireproof gypsumboard panel.
D. Waterproof gypsumboard panel.
E. Galvanized steel track and studs.
F. Galvanized steel furring strips.
The placement of the lower track is fundamental for the perfect alignment of the facade.

The system elements are easy to handle. They are installed from the interior of the building without using scaffolding.
Once installed, the panel becomes the structural support for any type of facade system, either rainscreen or conventional.
