Spanwall RF50-FR is a concealed fix, aluminium cassette panel, retained by hooks which are bolted onto extruded aluminium carrier rails, fixed to the structural support wall by adjustable wall brackets, secured with ant-lift screws.

Spanwall chose the most rigorous test regime, assessing panels sizes much larger than the norm at the largest floor spans and deepest cladding zones practical, to prove that the RF50-FR Rear Fixed 50mm Fire Rated Rainscreen System is truly fit for whatever configuration you might specify.  

The system can be used effectively on both new build projects and as a re-cladding solution to existing structures.

Three-dimensional adjustment and wall brackets that are available in numerous sizes, make it possible to deal with irregular building surfaces and introduce feature details.

The use of deeper wall brackets can allow for a range of insulation thickness to meet or exceed the U values required by the current Building Regulations in the UK and Ireland.

All cassettes are made specifically for each contract and can include project specific Copings, Cills, Closers, Window Pods, all carried out to the same high standards.

Spanwall also manufacture other detail products such as Louvred Ventilated Panels, Column Castings, Aerofoil Edging, Fins and Soffit Panels, all specific to each project.
