Bracket-based Assemblies: Balance and Performance

As rainscreen cladding took hold in the US design market, Z girts have proven to be challenging to seal for water/airtightness and are very inefficient thermally. Although commonly utilized due largely to budgetary constraints, the structural and...

A Complete Solution for Thermal Performance

With over 25 years of industry relationships, technical expertise, and real-life experience, ECO Cladding offers a complete 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 substructure components and bracket assembly.

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.

C.I. Subframing Solutions

With a variety of solutions being offered, our aluminum “C.I. Subframing” provides the best combination of fire safety, engineering and thermal performance at a cost-effective price.

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. ECO Cladding’s Alpha Wall Brackets offer a turn-key solution for the increasingly rigorous demands of engineering and thermal performance.
