UK RE-CLAD & RAINSCREEN INDUSTRY CAPACITY
According to recent reports, there are circa 100no residential tower buildings that require combustible cladding removed and replaced with a non-combustible cladding such as solid aluminium. This is just the tip of the iceberg, when you consider other buildings in the commercial, health & education sectors. BTS Facades & Fabrications are predicting a unprecedented busy time and we are getting prepared.
Can other rainscreen manufacturer’s cope when using out dated manufacturing processes?
Our focus is on technology, rather than relying on man power, in our opinion the more people involved in the process the more likely errors will occur and slow down fabrication.
BTS is investing in automated processes, from slick software to minimise human input to our new automated panel bender. After running time trails compared to fabricating a panel on a traditional brake press a standard size panel can take up to 5 minutes to fabricate, our panel bender takes under 80 seconds…
Investing in automation is the best way to increase capacity, maintain reliability and our industry leading reduced lead in periods.
BTS is ready for the challenge, are you?
