Recent Projects

Due to recent changes in building regulations, many housing associations are faced with challenges surrounding timber cladding replacement. High-rise dwellings now require fire rating on all external wall materials of A1 or A2 classification. Timber and other cladding less than A2 present a fire risk. Here are some recent wood finish projects which we have supplied to ensure buildings meet current regulations.

Timber Balustrade and Cladding Replacement

VulcaBar® Façade Screen System in ‘Rosewood’ finish provided a like-for-like timber replacement with A2 fire rating. This project eliminated the risk of fire whilst giving the property a modern low maintenance finish. The residents are impressed with the system as the existing timber had greyed and weathered unevenly in very few years.

Timber Cladding Replacement

The existing timber planks on this building failed to meet the required fire performance for high-rise dwellings. VulcaLap® T&G 125mm aluminium profile in ‘Western Red Cedar’ was selected for replacement due to its traditional timber appearance, low-maintenance qualities and superior product performance.

Timber Cladding New Build

Council property managers required a low-maintenance alternative to real timber on new builds next door to an existing timber-clad estate. VulcaLap® T&G 150mm aluminium profile in ‘Dark Oak’ provided peace of mind for the residents. It will also prove a good replacement for the estate next door!
