Our Downer rainscreen framing systems are fully engineered, proprietary subframe systems constructed from high strength aluminium alloys.
Ideal for: Cost-effective alternative to timber battens, providing a non-combustible framework
An aluminium framing system Downer DCS021 can be attached directly to the substrate. Sizes 25mm & 40mm which can be installed in single layer & cross battened layer formats.
Ideal for: Low to medium height buildings with solid masonry or stud frame walls
The aluminium sub frame system offering rapid installation and reduced costs, the Downer system incorporates HELPING HAND® wall brackets fixed back to the substrate. Combined with tee and angle carrier rails these provide the user with an adjustable system allowing for thermal and structural movement and variation in cavity depth ranging between 65mm-425mm. The system is ideal for low to medium height buildings with solid masonry or stud frame walls.
Ideal for: Multi-storey buildings
Designed to be specifically fixed to floor slabs, this high strength adjustable support system is capable of spanning storey heights without the need to introduce intermediate fixings. Due to the enhanced high wind resistance, this application is particularly utilised for multi-storey buildings.
Where specifications dictate a smooth facade unobstructed by visible fixings the Downer DCS002 & DCS004 mechanical secret fix systems can be used. Panels hangers fixed to the rear face of the panels hook on to horizontal cladding rails, which in turn may be integrated with one of our vertical carrier rail systems Downer DCS 021, 031 & 041.
