Rainscreen Façades are cladding systems applied either during the initial construction of a building or an over-cladding as part of refurbishment of an existing building. These provide an outer weather resistant decorative skin, fixed to a structure by means of a supporting grid, and maintain a cavity which is ventilated and drained, between itself and the primary structure.
Rainscreen cladding allows the designer to create complex and interesting facades, with an economic load bearing structure. The need for complicated detailing and the risk of cold bridging is dramatically reduced.
Our Façade range is fabricated from a multitude of solid and composite materials to suit a wide range of project applications, complemented by a wide variety of fully adjustable support systems to suit various wind load/spanning criteria.
Ash & Lacy offer a complete design package which includes structural steel framing, cladding and window design; in fact everything involved with the secondary elements of a building façade.
Through the design of both the supporting Steel Frame System and the co-ordinated detailing of the Ash & Lacy Façade, a robust, fast and cost effective approach can be achieved efficiently and aims to reduce costly on-site issues at controlled design stage.
