Fixfast have provided a complete engineered rainscreen support system to securely fix the decorative rainscreen façade for the new WorldPay offices.
TR Freeman was appointed as the specialist façade subcontractor and approached its long-standing fixing partner, Fixfast for advice on the best fixing solution for the project.
The rainscreen features decorative polyester powder-coated cassette panels in soft champagne, soft silver and anodic ice, with Kingspan composite panels.
These were complemented with anodised column casings adjacent to the main entrance.
A customised rainscreen support system was created for TR Freeman, which was designed to make installation as straightforward as possible.
To create the structural aluminium framework for the substructure, T-bars were used with double brackets and single brackets.
The framework was secured with DrillFast® DF3 frame fasteners in A2/304 stainless steel.
Powder-coated DrillFast® Lacquered stainless steel fasteners were used to ensure they blended in with the panels.
The decorative detailing featured shadow gaps and moulded corners, meaning each panel needed to be laser-levelled to create horizontal stripes that wrapped around every elevation.
Fully adjustable brackets on Fixfast’s rainscreen support systems meant that TR Freeman’s installation team could achieve perfect alignment.
