A Complete Solution for Thermal Performance

With over 25 years of rainscreen industry relationships, technical expertise, and real-life experience, ECO Cladding offers a non-combustible aluminum subframe platform of adjustable bracket and rail systems to accommodate a wide variety of rainscreen panels.  Our approach to rainscreen subframing gives designers the ability to interchange multiple cladding materials on the same elevation and/or project seamlessly with the same non-combustible substructure components and bracket assembly.

Our team evaluates the thermal impact of the rainscreen on the building, the implications of penetrations on the air-barrier, the need for internal adjustability without shims, the ease of installation, and provides a fully engineered, non-combustible subframing solution that has no NFPA 285 triggers.

From wind load, thermal, and span analysis to panel layout optimization and installation support, ECO Cladding provides a full range of design-assist, engineering, and installation support.


Connections at brackets, profiles and panel fasteners are engineered to limit panel stresses associated with thermal movements.


Our bracket based systems are designed to meet or exceed the thermal perfomance requirements of
ASHRAE 90.1.


Our approach allows fewer penetrations through the Continuous Insulation plane & the weather protective membrane.

Raina Rainscreen Association in North AmericaECO Cladding is proud to be a founding member of the Rainscreen Association in North America (RAiNA), an international not-for-profit industry association dedicated to serving the rainscreen market in North America. RAiNA provides a forum for designers, trades, test agencies, and material suppliers to gather to determine best practices, interpret and inform codes, as well as educate and address technical concerns in the industry. ECO Cladding is grateful to serve as a voting member on many of RAiNA's committees, with the shared goal of promoting properly designed rainscreen assemblies throughout North America. 

Seamless Integration

Design materials such as ACM, metal panels, FRP, fiber cement, HPL, terracotta, natural stone, porcelain ceramic, and fiber concrete can all be integrated into a drained and back-ventilated (DBV) rainscreen wall assembly with one seamless and uniform attachment approach that has no NFPA 285 triggers. ECO Cladding’s Alpha Wall Brackets offer a turn-key solution for the increasingly rigorous demands of engineering, fire safety, and thermal performance.
