Our proprietary high-quality overcladding is a pressure-equalised, back-ventilated, insulated aluminium rainscreen cassette system secretly fixed to an aluminium framework which is secured to the existing structure by stainless steel connections.
The rainscreen is integrated with high-performance windows by aluminium window pods and readily interfaces with other systems including curtain walling using proprietary extrusion profiles.
This system has BR135 classification, CWCT accreditation and is proven for more than 30 years, during which time severe fire has occurred and been successfully contained. The system comprises only inert aluminium and stainless steel fixings with anticipated service life well in excess of 60 years.
For Overcladding to be successful it must last a very long time and provide modern desirable accommodation. The d+b facades system is proven to last and continue to look good for the duration of its extended life, retaining its ‘as-new’ appearance without the need for periodic maintenance.
