Engineering led approach

Your rainscreen support system is customised to your specific requirements. Based on the location and structure of your building, and our extensive test data, our in-house technical team will undertake substrate and wind load calculations to determine the exact support system you require. If needed, we will carry out on-site pull tests to confirm the structural suitability of your system with the available substrate.


We optimise your support system to match with the outer skin of your rainscreen design, and make installation as straightforward as possible. The end result is a system configured specifically to your project and easily installed by your on-site team, with components delivered to site when you need them, so you can move on to the next job sooner.
