Specification Hub

Fastener performance starts with correct specification – too often, poor quality or incorrect fasteners are used. With our specification services, you can specify with confidence – from bespoke technical advice to downloadable CAD drawings, we have the solution to your specification challenges.

Download our building envelope fastener specification guide

We have developed a specification guide to set out the basic principles of fastener performance in terms of material make-up, durability, and aesthetics.

Together with guidance on the requirements of system applications, this guide will help you navigate the relevant standards and regulations - with a checklist to work through when developing written specifications.

Based on the specific demands of your project, we will put together a package of best-in-class components - including substrate fasteners, the substructure and facade fasteners - so you can deliver cost-effective, compliant, secure and durable rainscreens for your clients.

Living Roof

It is clear to see why living roofs are growing in popularity. By reducing heating costs while also creating an urban space for wildlife to thrive, living roofs hit the economy + ecology sweet spot. In addition, planning policies are increasingly calling for the inclusion of wall and site planting, including roofs and walls where feasible.

Flat Roof and Drainage

The Fixfast product portfolio includes flat roof fastening systems to securely fix many roof build-ups to a variety of substrates, robust roof drainage systems to suit most flat roof membranes and a substantial range of other rooftop products essential to completing the weatherproofing.
