Offsite Manufactured Cladding Systems

StructurClad by SIAC

StructurClad is SIAC’s Offsite Unitised Prefabricated Wall System. The growing popularity of modular off-site construction, together with the increasing trend to unitise a wide variety of façade treatments on commercial projects, led SIAC to research new methods of manufacture and installation to meet the needs of the architect and specifier. We developed a factory-built unitised system, StructurClad, which offers dramatic time savings over conventional façade treatments. StucturClad panels are manufactured to individual requirements in a clean, controlled environment in our assembly plant in Gloucester. Once on site, StructurClad panels are installed without the assistance of mechanical access or scaffolding. The pre-fabricated panels can incorporate many of the features of traditionally built window configurations and offer dramatic on-site programme savings. The results are reduced preliminary and installation costs. Specifying the StructurClad unitised system offers valuable benefits as follows;

• Fabricated and assembled off site ensuring a quality finish to both panels and windows

• Eliminates the need for scaffolding by back fixing

• Significantly reduces installation time as off-site techniques provide faster ‘lead in' and on-site project commencement and completition

• Offsite techniques provide predictable cost, construction quality, programme timing and project handover and minimise weather interruption and programme overrun risk

• Elimates the need for materials to be stored on site, thus reducing site wastage and damage

• Fully tested to the rigours of CWCT Sequence B performance criteria, ensuring the highest level of façade performance for medium and high-rise buildings

• Ensures minimum disruption to surrounding environment. Optional unitised solutions include curtain walling and terracotta finishes together with a wide variety of back-up wall solutions for quick and efficient on-site erection from off-site assembly.
