High Rise Retrofit & Recladding
Wetherby Building Systems are specialists in the design and supply of external wall insulation systems for the refurbishment of multi-storey domestic properties.
Following the Grenfell Tragedy, guidelines have been changed to ensure safe systems are installed on to High Rise buildings. In some cases, strip offs are required with the need to reclad with suitable, safe and robust systems.
Unlike low rise dwellings, the system at height is subject to a considerable amount of wind suction pressure and great care must be taken to ensure the system can withstand these pressures and remain adhered and watertight.
With over twenty years of experience in this type of solution, Wetherby can bring a wealth of experience to the very important technical requirements for these buildings. Specialist fixings, adhesives and pull out tests are all required to meet the onerous requirements. Our technical staff have the knowledge to ensure the specification for these buildings will provide a workable, long lasting system able to cope with the extra demands of being applied high in the air.
Once the basic insulation and reinforcements are correctly specified a range of external colours , textures and finishes are available to transform the appearance of the building along with the heat saving advantages.
Wetherby follow a stringent process to ensure high rise buildings are correctly designed and accurately installed. This is detailed in an easy to follow step by step guide featured in the brochure below.
A1 Fireproof Brick Slip & Render Systems
Wetherby are constantly developing new innovative systems and with the large requirement for external systems that perform well with Fire, it made sense for us to add more fire proof systems to the portfolio. Wetherby now offer A1 Brick Slip options alongside the original A1 Render system.
The A1 System sets new standards in external wall insulation fire performance.
