Technical Support & Specialist Design

 

 

Customised 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.

c-technical-service-r-4 • Finite element method stress analysis

 

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.

c-technical-service-r-3 • Parametric design

 

Client Consultation

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.
c-technical-service-r-1 • Shop drawing with application details

 

Technical Documentation

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.
c-technical-service-r-2 • Structural analysis report
