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 sub-framing or attachment systems as two parts, what we call “C.I. Sub-framing” and “Panel Sub-framing,” working in harmony to create one wall assembly.
With a variety of solutions being offered, ECO Cladding believes that our aluminum “C.I. Sub-framing” 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.
Alpha Vci - Vertical C.I. Subframing System
Vertical C.I. Subframing system addresses fire safety, engineering and thermal performance. Based on panel layout, creates an attachment plane for vertical panel layout.
Alpha V brackets serve as the engineered building blocks components for vertically oriented C.I. Subframing. Fully-engineered and designed to incorporate intermittent Alpha brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create the “C.I. Subframing” layer.
Alpha 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, Alpha Hci creates an attachment plane for horizontal panel layout.
ECO Cladding attachment systems incorporate intermittent Alpha brackets with continuous outer aluminum rails to create the “C.I. Subframing” layer.
Alpha Eci - Edge to Edge C.I. Sub-framing System
This “edge to edge” 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.
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 can support floor-to-floor spans for a more cost-effective installation with increased thermal performance.
