Framing

Aluminium brackets, rails and systems are predominately used for cladding applications.

The brackets and rails support the decorative cladding panels and create the cavity between the building substrate and façade panel required for insulation and for ventilation.

Aluminium framing are used for Rainscreen cladding systems and are appropriate for most types of decorative façade materials that utilise mechanical fix and structural adhesive techniques.
