As well as the design services we can provide, the product offer has been packaged as convenient systems, encompassing support rails and brackets referred to collectively as BML Smart Fixing Systems. The standard types of panelised rainscreen cladding systems cover the majority of requirements, whilst the design services allow for bespoke solutions or subtle reconfigurations of the standard systems to suit specific applications
Material and colour choice forms an effective trinity with design services and BML Systems to mean that whatever the design, we’ll deliver.
A rainscreen façade is a cladding applied either during primary construction or as an over cladding to an existing structure. Rainscreen cladding consist of an outer weather-resistant decorative skin fixed to an underlying structure by means of a supporting grid, which maintains a ventilated and drained cavity between the façade and the structure.
Rainscreen façades are not normally sealed and a ventilation cavity of at least 25mm is allowed immediately behind the cladding panel. Insulation can be positioned within the cavity and openings at the top and bottom of clad areas allow for evaporation of moisture vapour and ventilation/drainage. A ventilated rainscreen incorporating insulation will allow the building fabric to breathe without the risk of interstitial condensation or structural decay.
Booth Muirie uses a range of metal and metal composite materials (MCM) to manufacture rainscreen cladding systems. MCMs consist of two thin skins of aluminum or other metals such as copper, zinc and stainless steel continuously bonded under tension to either side of a thermoplastic or mineral core.
