Anvil Metal Cladding Systems
Anvil metal cladding systems
This innovative range of metal rainscreen systems allow a precise and efficient installation, with perfect joint lines and accurate tolerances.
The common misconception is that innovative and stylish metal facade systems are expensive and perceived to be complicated to install and detail. This metal cladding range will allow you to achieve a stunning facade at a very competitive cost.
More and more developments are calling for fast track construction techniques to enhance performance with regard to build time and programmes. Clients are demanding reduced build time and weather tightness as a necessity to ensure that the schemes can be complete as soon as possible. This system offers both the architect specifying and the subcontractor installing the product, a generic framing system to support the range of metal facades, excluding the unitised and mesh systems.
Pre-coated aluminium (A1 fire rated)
We offer a range of pre-coated aluminium panels which are manufactured through a coil coating process. Pre-coat solutions provide a high-grade and quality surface in an extensive range of colours and textures. It is also available as a printed option, to provide decorative finishes including anodised metals, metal patinas, wood-grains and stone. The benefits of pre-coated aluminium include:
- Class A1 fire rating
- UV colour resistance
- 30-year guarantee
- Rust free
- Water resistant
- 25% stronger
- Environmentally sustainable
- Available as a cladding system
Polyester powder coated (PPC)
This type of paint coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder, which sets it apart from a conventional liquid paint as it does not require a solvent to separate the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is usually applied electrostatically and forms a skin by being cured under a heat source; creating a harder finish that is tougher than conventional paint. The benefits of PPC include:
- Extensive range of RAL and British standard colours
- Simulated zinc and Corten
- Textured finishes
- Stone effect
Pressed plank secret fix (PPSF)
This range of aluminium planks are truly engineered components that offer precise joint lines. Standard panel sizes are between 75-450mm high with a maximum length of 6000mm. These planks can be orientated vertically, horizontally or diagonally and can also be used as a soffit.
This product provides a distinct regular joint that adds to the aesthetic and is available in finishes including PPC, anodised, stainless steel, perforated, pre-painted, zinc and 'zinc look-alike'.
If you are looking for a bespoke, curved architectural plank these can be profiled to suit your design intent.
Secret & recessed joint fix (SRJF)
Architects looking for a smooth continuous facade, without visible fixings, have two choices to consider. The first option is to use a secret fix system, whereby the method of securing the cladding panel to the support structure is at the rear of the panel.
The second option is a compromise between faced fix material and truly secret fix, whereby the fixings sit between the shadow gap of adjoining panels, creating a recessed joint fix. In addition to this, the recessed joint fixing allows each panel to be individually demountable, which may by useful if any panels need replacing in the future.
Both these systems are available in PCC aluminium, anodised, pre-painted and zinc look-alike finishes.
Unitised offsite manufacturing
The increase in popularity of offsite manufacturing has revolutionised the way buildings are being constructed. Unitised facades are designed to exploit the benefits of manufacturing off-site, and allow modern methods of construction to be applied to the external envelope.
Architects, house builders and main contractors are more than ever acknowledging the benefits of relocating elements of the construction process into a controlled environment. A more efficient and timely build process is achieved, quality is improved and on-site work is significantly safer.
Façades that are unitised comprise of prefabricated assembled units which are directly transported from the factory to site, for quick installation onto ready prepared fixings. Unitised facades allow designs to diverge from the uniformity associated with standard manufacturing processes, allowing a mix of panel sizes, colours and materials.
