Facade fixings design and engineering
If you need specialist wall cladding fixings, our expert engineering team can help.
We provide construction contractors, structural engineers, and architects with bespoke facade fixing system designs. Our engineers carry out all the necessary structural calculations and analysis, providing these details alongside the design.
our focus is to design and make fixings that are safe, secure, and affordable. Please contact us with any queries.
Advanced software and tools
Our technical department uses CAD and parametric design software such as Autodesk Revit, as well as structural stress and finite elements analysis programs.
The first stage of the customised design process is that a member of the technical engineering team liaises with the client to fully understand their requirements and project criteria. Our technical team can collaborate with you on technical and architectural drawings.
Our engineering team will produce all the necessary technical documentation and drawings that are needed to obtain approval for fixing systems elements. Full analysis reports will be provided, such as finite element stress analysis for sub-channel and unitised panel facades.
Standard ComplianceAt HAZ Metal, we make sure that our engineers that our work to meet all the relevant regulations and standards. Once the projects scope and speciation has been agreed we'll get to work using the following standards. European Standards
