SAS Europe’s rendered rainscreen system ProWall has been certified with LABC Warranty and Premier Guarantee Product Approval again. This adds to its 60-year BBA durability certificate that the system has been holding since 2013.
The cavity based rainscreen has been developed as a hassle free option for new build timber frame buildings. It delivers breathable buildings with a tough, attractive, and low maintenance façade due to its rendered surface coupled with a free draining cavity. It can also be an ideal choice for larger public buildings as its adaptable system has the option to be fitted using ‘helping hands’ systems to steel frame constructions. Its integrated fire safety, together with premium render carrier boards and a high quality render finish, make ProWall a top choice for many architect and developers.
“We are finding that ProWall rainscreen is being chosen for an increasingly wide range of builds, from one off architect-designed homes to local authority commissioned leisure centres and schools. We expect the use of ProWall to continue to grow in 2018 as it is such a great option for timber frame new builds, and we have increasing repeat customers,” said Adam Powell, Technical Consultant at SAS Europe.
ProWall was named a Premier Guarantee Product and was approved to perform to a consistently high quality standard and remain durable for at least 60 years. The system’s manufacturers were audited on assembly, design, on site construction, quality control, and transportation.
Being approved by LABC means that the ProWall system has been rigorously checked by Local Authority Building Control surveyors and it complies with the LABC Warranty technical standards. It demonstrates compliance with UK Building Regulations, product testing and third party accreditation, all fulfilling the requirements of the Construction Products Regulations of July 2013.
