Anvil Metal Cladding Systems
Anvil Metal Cladding Systems
This innovative range of aluminium rainscreen systems allow a precise and efficient installation, with perfect joint lines and accurate tolerances.
Available in a wide variety of colours and finishes, including an A1 fire rated (to EN13501-1) pre-coated aluminium panel, our metal cladding systems will allow you to achieve a striking facade at a very competitive cost.
More and more developments are calling for fast track construction techniques to enhance performance with regards to build times and programmes. As well as strong demands for reduced build time, changes in building regulations in 2018 now prohibit the use of ‘combustible cladding’ on relevant high-rise buildings over 18 metres. Suitable for new builds and re-cladding, our pre-coated finish, part of the Anvil range, offers a non-combustible aluminium panel solution.
Interlocking Multi Plane (IMP)
Our Anvil metal cladding is available using an interlocking multi plane (IMP) system with a secret fix joint. The secret fix joint means there are no visible fixings, providing a precise and uniform finish to the facade.
To suit individual design requirements, the IMP panel system can be utilised to create a range of facade patterns. The system can employ a mix of wedge-shaped and variable depth cassettes, allowing the creation of varying panel configurations and geometric effects. These cassettes can then be laid in a multi-directional fashion, allowing the construction of highly creative aesthetic details.
It is possible to perforate the faces of the cassettes, providing another means of generating unique and decorative visual effects on the facade with perforated aluminium panels.
The IMP system is available with a PPC, natural metal or anodised finish. Contact us for samples, further details regarding the colours/finishes available or technical details.
Recessed Joint Fix (RJF1)
Our Anvil metal cladding is available using a semi-concealed recessed joint fixed (RJF) system with an overlapping joint. To provide a consistent finish to the facade, coloured fixings are available to match the aluminium panels.
It is also possible to perforate the faces of the cassettes, providing the option to generate unique and decorative visual effects. The panels can also be laid in a multi-directional, staggered pattern, allowing the construction of a highly creative aesthetic to suit individual project designs. Available in panel sizes up to 1.3m x 3.8m. The standard joint width for this system is 20mm.
The RJF system is available with a PPC, anodised, natural metal or A1 pre-coated finish. Contact us for samples, further details regarding the colours/finishes available or technical details.
Secret Fix Landscape/Portrait (SFL1/SFP1)
Our Anvil metal cladding is available using a secret fixed joint system with either a landscape (SFL) or portrait (SFP) profile. The concealed joint means there are no visible fixings, providing a precise and uniform finish to the facade. Comprising of secret hook-on cassettes, this system is available in variable sizes, allowing design freedom to create a desired pattern/effect using the multi-variant cassette formats. Well suited to over cladding existing facade structures.
Available in panel sizes up to 1.3m x 3.8m. The minimum joint width for this system is 10mm.
The secret fix system is available with a PPC, anodised or natural metal finish. Contact us for samples, further details regarding the colours/finishes available or technical details.
Pressed Plank Secret Fix (PPSF)
Our Anvil metal cladding is also available using a pressed plank secret fix (PPSF) system which utilises a secret clip fix joint on to an aluminium support framework, providing an aesthetically clean finish with no visible fixings.
Similar to our recessed and interlocking systems, the pressed planks can be laid horizontally, vertically or in a multi-directional fashion, allowing the construction of unique and imaginative project designs. It is also possible to perforate the faces of the cassettes, providing another means of generating decorative visual effects on the facade.
Planks are available in face widths of 100 – 400mm and in lengths of up to 6m. To create the look of longer lengths, the system can be utilised with butt joints. The PPSF system is also available with a PPC, anodised, natural metal or A1 pre-coat finish.
Perforated Metal and Expanded Mesh
Perforated metal panels are produced by punching holes of different shapes and sizes into cold sheets of metal to create various patterns. The amount and size of the perforations are a critical factor for consideration in the design process. We can supply round, square or special-shaped perforated systems as well as bespoke perforated or embossed patterns to suit your project design requirements.
Expanded mesh screens are extremely versatile, ideal for creating a contemporary facade and offer an instant transformation on refurbishments and new developments. The amount and size of perforations, or the 'eyes' of the expanded mesh, are a critical factor for consideration in the design process. These flexible metal patterns can be used to enhance the shape of a building and can be manipulated to achieve unusual and striking visual effects.
Colours and Finishes
We also offer an extensive portfolio of over 180 polyester powder coated (PPC) RAL colours, available in either a matt, satin or gloss finish as well as a range of anodised and anodic-look PPC finishes – a cost effective alternative to the anodised finishes, that create the visual of an anodised surface.
For an affordable solution to natural materials like stone, we provide a range of PPC mineral textures. As an alternative, we provide a range of natural metal finishes including bronze, Corten and copper, as well as an additional PPC metal-look and metallic range.
All of our PPC colour ranges are A2 fire rated (tested to EN13501). For some examples of colours available, please see our gallery below or contact us for a full list of colours.
A1 Fire Rated Pre-coated Finish
We provide a vast range of colours and finishes to suit our Anvil aluminium cladding systems.
For an A1 fire rated (tested to EN13501-1) panel, we offer a pre-coated aluminium finish which is manufactured through a coil coating process, providing a high-grade and quality surface. Our non-combustible panels are available in several finishes including anodic silver, basalt grey, city concrete, jet black, polar white and Corten. The benefits of pre-coated aluminium include:
- Class A1 fire rating (EN13501-1 + A1:2013)
- UV colour resistance
- 30-year guarantee
- Rust free
- Water resistant
- 25% higher tensile strength
- Environmentally sustainable
