Rainscreen Wall Design has Matured...
Building designers and owners want a complete, cost-effective wall where all components work together to maximize the wall’s performance. Substrate, air-vapor barrier, insulation, sub-framing, and exterior facade panels need to be designed as one wall assembly with each element complimenting the other. ECO Cladding sees cladding support systems or attachment systems as two parts, what we call “C.I. Sub-framing” and “Panel Sub-framing,” working in harmony to create one unified wall assembly.
With a variety of solutions being offered, ECO Cladding believes that our aluminum and stainless steel “C.I. Sub-framing” layer provides the best combination of fire safety, engineering, and thermal performance at a cost-effective price. When the “Panel Sub-framing” is incorporated into the system, the wall assembly will address all of the wall’s design requirements and ensure the façade’s exterior panels achieve maximum performance.
In addition, all of ECO Cladding’s cladding support system components are non-combustible and are not triggers for the NFPA 285 requirements in the IBC.
Vci - Vertical C.I. Subframing System
Vertical C.I. Subframing system addresses fire safety, engineering, and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, this system creates an attachment plane for vertical panel layout.
ECO V brackets serve as the engineered building block components for vertically oriented C.I. Subframing. Fully engineered and designed to incorporate intermittent wall brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create the “C.I. Subframing” layer.
Wall brackets are available in our Alpha (aluminum) and Sigma (stainless steel) versions. These metals qualify as non-combustible per IBC language.
Hci - Horizontal C.I. Subframing System
As the primary building block, our Horizontal C.I. Subframing system addresses fire safety, engineering, and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, this layer creates an attachment plane for horizontal panel layout.
Our cladding attachment systems incorporate intermittent Alpha or Sigman wall brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create this “C.I. Subframing” layer for cladding panel attachment and support. .
Our components are made of aluminum (Alpha) and stainless steel (Sigma). These metals qualify as non-combustible per IBC language.
Eci - Edge to Edge C.I. Sub-framing System
This “edge to edge” wall bracket is specifically designed to be fixed to concrete floor slabs. This unique, engineered support system is capable of spanning story heights without the need for intermediate fixings. The system is individually constructed and fabricated for each project, making it ideal for over-cladding medium and highrise buildings.
ECO Cladding's Alpha E brackets offer high load-carrying capacity and large spans can be achieved with solid supporting beam recess. Each bracket is able to perform a fixed and sliding point function and support floor-to-floor spans for a more cost-effective installation with increased thermal performance.
Our components are made of raw aluminum and stainless steel. These metals qualify as non-combustible per IBC language.
