New Vantage® Systems Launched

New Product launch  07/10/2019

Today, World Architecture Day, we have a very exciting announcement to make.

We have joined forces with The Expanded Metal Company to create an innovative new expanded mesh frame system for architectural design, which can update their look through its pioneering design and simple installation – the first of its kind in the UK.

The product came about after EMCo recognised a gap in the market for the installation of its expanded metal mesh material, not being able to source a fixing system in the UK, only in Europe.

The finished product is part of the Vantage® EM range – a protective mesh bracket and rail system affixed to buildings to create a pleasing aesthetic. With framed and non-framed versions available, the completed look is entirely the creation of the client’s imagination.

Displaying its striking visual effect, the Vantage® EMF (framed) range can be used in a variety of architectural façade applications, including shrouding areas such as fire escapes, mezzanines and balconies, while the Vantage® EMSA (site assembled) non-framed range has wider commercial applications such as car parks and open structures.

We have used The Expanded Metal Company’s products for a number of years so were thrilled when EMco Managing Director, Philip Astley approached us to work together.

We see the mesh framed system as a diamond ring, with the mesh being the ‘diamond’ and the framed fixing system the setting – together they are a perfect match.

As the product is so unique, we currently have a patent pending to protect the design and manufacture of the Vantage® EMF.

This is a very exciting time for both companies and after the hard work from our great design and manufacturing team over the last 18 months, we are now looking forward to our product entering the market.

The rainscreen is unique as the colours, finish and patterns of the mesh can be changed to alter the visual appeal, so it is perfect for refurbishments or modern building looking for a façade that can be altered quickly and easily.

With our strong market knowledge and as a trusted brand, the range will create a supply chain for contractors, who previously had to travel to Europe for a similar type of product.

EMCo has a long history of supplying expanded metal mesh products for use in the architectural and construction sectors, so this partnership combines their extensive industry expertise and manufacturing capabilities with our innovative approach and specialist knowledge.

We’re really looking forward to seeing the Vantage® EMF and EMSA range applied in future building projects and are delighted to be working hand in hand with another pioneering North East company.

Vantage® DF Discreet Fix Rainscreen System

Vantage® DF CWCT tested rainscreen system delivers the speed, precision installation and cost-effectiveness of a fully modular system, yet also has the flexibility to accommodate bespoke design detail. The system is particularly effective for vertical applications, but is also adaptable for use in horizontal orientations.

Completely integrated, envelope solution

The system offers a wide selection of panel sizes, offering designers the opportunity to experiment with panel variation and orientation, producing stunning façade, soffit and fascia combinations without breaking the budget.

Vantage® IP Interlocking Plank System

This innovative secret-fix interlocking plank CWCT tested rainscreen system gives visually stunning results. The system is self-spacing across both horizontal and vertical joints to give panel gaps from 2mm to 20mm without the need to site measure - and the standardised component and detail range means that this modular solution perfectly projects the right image for your design concept. The system can be used in either portrait or landscape orientation, allowing architects a number of design possibilities.

Crisp, clean lines, sharp, precise detail

Designed and developed using state-of-the-art 3d engineering software, Vantage® IP embodies BTS Facades and Fabrications’ truly obsessive focus on the finer points of rainscreen design. The team can also produce 3d renditions of the finished project proposal for discussion with specifiers to ensure that every aspect, every fold and every line of every panel accurately reflects the architects vision to perfection.
