EUROFOX SUPPORT MAKES RAINSCREEN SPECIFIERS’ TASK EASIER AND SAFER
Eurofox Engineering, the rainscreen cladding support systems specialists, has put together the industry’s most comprehensive package of specification tools and support for its comprehensive range of systems.
Eurofox has become the UK leader in the field of ventilated façade support with its structured and safe engineering approach to ventilated façade specification. This attitude has now been crystallised with the launch of dynamic new specifier support tools, literature, a new web site, interactive CD, NBS plus specification writing assistance, all with full technical back-up.
Modern rainscreen support systems need to offer the specifier and end user excellent technical performance and confidence in the engineering – Eurofox offer vertical and horizontal systems utilising both mechanical fix and structural adhesive techniques. Cladding zones from 40 to 340 mm can be accommodated. Eurofox support systems offer a wide range of advanced solutions for both concealed and visible cladding fixing systems.
Eurofox systems utilise a pre-mounting technique for fast effective initial line and level adjustment prior to final fixing which results in a perfectly level façade and an accurately controlled cladding zone as well as an allowance for dead and dynamic loading.
At the centre of the Eurofox specifier-focussed service offering is the user-friendly ‘Project Checklist’ system available on line at www.eurofoxengineering.com. This takes specifiers through a step-by-step route to compiling the specification. A project specific response is prepared including static calculations for the project’s structural requirements, AutoCAD drawings and project integrity checks and m2 layout advice calculations to project material quantities and cost saving suggestions.
This total support package for specifiers has now been enhanced with the launch of a new, interactive web site and CD giving designers real insight into specifying cladding support systems. The site has been formulated by Eurofox’s market-leading team of technical support staff who can help Architects with installation plans and training, static analysis, detailing and surveys. Fully downloadable literature on all of the systems is a simple operation from the web site and many of the systems are fully animated.
Suitable for new build and for refurbishment schemes, Eurofox’s ‘off the shelf’ product can be used with cladding materials as diverse as Ceramics, Timber, Metals, Aluminium Composite Material, High pressure laminate, Fibre cement, Terracotta and site rendered building boards. The company also offers specially designed and fabricated solutions for bespoke applications.
