Benx offers a wide range of recladding systems with excellent performance characteristics

At Benx we have developed an extensive portfolio of tested and certified fire-safe recladding solutions for all build types, from single storey through to high rise-buildings.

Our experience in this sector spans 20 years and covers a comprehensive range of A1 and A2 fire rated cladding systems in an array of finishes including render, brick, aluminum and multiple board options with various textures, styles and colours.

Our expertise in fire protected cladding solutions stems from our policy of carefully sourcing each of the components used in our cladding systems and then extensively testing the assembled system. This allows us to validate each component and how it acts in-extremis alongside the other components in our systems.

Benx offers a comprehensive range of Euroclass A1 and A2 fire classified façade systems for all types of recladding projects. Whether you require a rain-screen cladding system or an external wall insulation system with render or brick slips, we can supply a complete recladding solution from the external board outward. Our systems can be utilised on masonry, timber and metal framed structures.

Please note: Fire classification is dependent on the specific system finish selected for the façade :

 

Cavity System 1

A1 non-combustible fire classification

A2 limited combustibility fire rating

A1 Fire classification dependent on system finish selected.

This modern method of construction, also referred to as ETIC’s, has proven extremely popular over recent years and is now the preferred recladding method for mid-to-high rise structures. Our market-leading Cavity Systems consist of Euroclass BS EN 13501 – A1 components, which are mechanically fixed back to the inner sheathing board to create the designed cavity width with either the insulation board fitted directly to the A1 fillets (CS1 system), or a secondary A1 sheathing board and insulation (CS2 system). Our A1 EWI recladding systems are supplied with a mineral top coat finish.

System Build-Up

Our render systems EnviroSil, FlexiSil and Enviromin topcoat finishes have a long lifespan but should there be a requirement they can all be easily redecorated at any stage of their lifetime, making them very versatile. This offers the opportunity to change the appearance of the façade easily whilst still maintaining the performance of the system.

All of these finishes are applied onto a basecoat incorporating reinforcement mesh resulting in a robust and impact resistant system. Find out more about our Cavity System 1 here

Cavity System 2

A2 limited combustibility fire rating

Cavity systems are extensively used on lightweight framed structures to create a void between the cladding and the sheathed framed structure. Our CS systems 1 & 2 are the next generation of this solution.

These market-leading Cavity Systems consist of Euroclass BS EN 13501 – A1 components, which are mechanically fixed back to the inner sheathing board to create the designed cavity width with either the insulation board fitted directly to the A1 fillets (CS1 system), or a secondary A1 sheathing board and insulation (CS2 system). Our A1 EWI recladding systems are supplied with a mineral top coat finish.

A proprietary base coat render is applied with a reinforcing plastic coated glass fibre mesh prior to the application of the required finishes.

Wall System 1 – Applied to Framed Structures

Flame Icon

A1 non-combustible fire classification

A2 limited combustibility fire rating

External wall insulation systems are extensively used on lightweight framed structures and direct-fix projects. The speed at which they can be erected and weatherproofed provides significant benefits to the developer. Removing the cladding from the critical path, bringing forward the internal trades and thereby shortening the contract period and eliminating the problems associated with brick and blockwork construction. This method of construction has proven extremely popular over recent years.

The details that follow demonstrate the use of the SPSenvirowall systems on lightweight steel frames although the principle operates equally effectively on timber frame structures.
