ECO Cladding Fiber Cement Rainscreen Hci.10 Cladding System

SPOTLIGHT: Alpha Hci.10 System Selected for Built-in Adjustability

The new 8-story Academic Research Complex for the School of Public Health at SUNY Downstate is a design by Ennead Architects. The building is composed of three "stacked" boxes, of which two...

Design Hint: Don't Isolate - Think Full Systems!

We're not limited to component parts only! ECO Cladding is committed to providing fully-engineered system-based solutions, in which both cladding and substructure are engineered to accommodate project wind loads, seismic loads, building slab to...

ECO Cladding Systems are superior to the traditional Z Girt Approach

The Z Girt’s Time has Passed

With all the code changes and requirements for Continuous Insulation (c.i.) on Light Gauge Metal Framing (LGMF), Z girts have proven to be challenging to seal for water/airtightness and are very inefficient thermally.  ECO Cladding provides...

A Complete Solution for Thermal Performance

With over 25 years of industry relationships, technical expertise and real-life experience, ECO Cladding continues to offer 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.

ENGINEERED

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

COMPLIANT

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

OPTIMIZED

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.

Thermal Modeling

Our non-continuous, thermally broken Alpha brackets have been thermally modeled by Morrison Hershfield to help designers achieve the intended U-value for their wall and demonstrate what insulation material thickness is required to meet or exceed...

The Alpha Advantage

Alpha V, H, and E brackets are the building blocks designed to simplify the process of building rainscreen walls of all types including C.I. Subframing and Panel Subframing.

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.
