Project - Vantage® Secret Fix-Full System
Technology - Steel
Company - EOS/Etex
EOS are supporting leading rainscreen and facade manufacturer BTS Facades & Fabrications to bring a pioneering complete ‘through-wall’ solution to market. Taking a safety-first approach, the Vantage® Secret Fix-Full System (SF-FS) is tried and tested as a unitised solution and supplied as a complete kit of parts incorporating an external rainscreen facade and protected internally by EOS’s innovative Thruwall® system. Developed by BTS in collaboration with Etex Group partners EOS and Siniat, together with Siderise, DuPont, Knauf Insulation, SFS and Nvelope - the system is believed to be the first in the UK to have successfully completed large scale testing in accordance with the most recent BS8414-2:2020 standard. Vantage® SF-FS successfully conforms to the stringent criteria for internal and external spread of flame, as well as mechanical failure. A robust testing protocol was seen as essential to not only demonstrate technical prowess but also a commitment to building safety and regulatory compliance. Compliance with BS8414-2:2020 provides not only technical credibility but importantly – certified assurance is now a pre-requisite for many tender opportunities, giving the new Vantage® System a commercial advantage.
