Dealing with singular points

The singular points of a façade are all the points that may be problematic in the continuity of the cladding. They must be designed to prevent water filtering through and great care must be taken when working on them.

The singular points of a façade may be linear (start and end of cladding, expansion joint, fire stop profiles, façade corners, etc.) or in set positions (rainwater drains, ventilation, cable raceways, window and door frames, etc.).
