ModCell® Panels are available in three variants:

ModCell® Traditional lime render

ModCell® Core non-rendered

ModCell® Core + breathable render

ModCell® Traditional panels are delivered to site with a two layer render finish inside and out. A finish skim coat is applied on site from a scaffold or cherry picker.

ModCell® Core is a factory finished fully closed, dry lined panel system using breathable sheathing boards in place of the lime render. The standard external finish is breathable sheathing board, battened ready to receive a variety of rain screen cladding systems. the internal sheathing board is ready to accept a variety of internal boards. 

ModCell® Core + is as the Core panel above, the external battens are replaced with 40mm of wood fibre breather/render board. The wood fibre board then has a thin coat breathable render system applied. Both the wood fibre and render is applied onsite. ModCell® Core + meets the demanding PassivHaus standards, see opposite.

All panels are located with a tolerance gap between them and sealed using compressible tapes. Weathering details vary from project to project  and are developed by ModCell® in conjunction with the project designer. See typical details for recommended finishing and weathering details. 

ModCell® panels can be lifted into position on site using a telescopic arm or crane. The mass of the largest ModCell® panel is 1.7 tonnes. Panels are sealed using a range of airtight tapes. 

Weathering details vary from project to project and are not supplied by ModCell®.
