FastFrame is an adjustable cladding fixing system that suits most brands of exterior cladding panels. We can offer an in-house technical service to calculate the safest yet most cost-effective bracket spacings to support your facade. Save time and money by completing the checklist below.

The FastFrame solution offers many benefits not found in other systems. These don’t just make installation quicker, they also result in a more reliable, cost-reduced facade support system.

The FastFrame component bracket also resolves issues with other current rail and bracket aluminium framing systems. The unique design of this three-part folded aluminium bracket features a base leg much thicker than the stalk leg. As the performance of the bracket is directly related to the thickness of its base leg, this ensures that FastFrame brackets can easily withstand the total stresses placed upon it by its own weight, the forces of the wind, and the weight of the facade.

Isolation of the bracket from the building substructure is essential, both for thermal and long-term reliability purposes. Without a form of inert material between the aluminium bracket and the building, corrosion will eventually occur, weakening the framing and shortening the life of the installation. This aspect is not to be underestimated as the failure of corroded brackets could result in a disastrous failure of the whole facade. By incorporating a tough integral PVC clip to secure the ‘L’ piece and the base plate together, this essential isolation barrier cannot be inadvertently omitted, and at the same time accelerates installation.

The design of the highly efficient FastFrame bracket also yields long term environmental benefits, contributing to meeting Building Regulation Part ‘L’ by limiting heat conduction away from the building and lowering heating costs. A further benefit of the stronger isolated bracket is that it enables wider spanning and, in many cases, a reduction in the number of brackets required to secure the facade. This brings significant savings in terms of materials and particularly in installation time.
