Rainscreen Cladding Support Systems - Principles, Design, Specification, Procurement and Installation
Modern façades are becoming more complex and are combing different types of cladding. There is a need for a more detailed, structured and collaborative approach to rainscreen cladding support systems specification, procurement and installation.
- Fluent communications between the Architect, specialist cladding contractor and the material and rainscreen support systems manufacturers is crucial. It’s a serious business and support systems need to be ‘fit for purpose’.
- In this module, we discuss what needs to be considered to realise a safe and optimum support structure, and presents an approach that takes into account both the specifier’s and the installer’s needs.
