With extensive experience in creating innovative façade options, Wetherby Building Systems Ltd teams up with other manufacturers to introduce TotalWall.
Wetherby, Frameclad, Kemwell Fire and ROCKWOOL join forces to offer this full through wall system for the building envelope. It is suitable for a variety of markets, including modular/offsite construction.
The collaboration offers a combination of expertise in external wall insulation systems, light gauge steel frame, passive fire protection building products and non-combustible insulation. The TotalWall system includes all components in one unique wall system. This ranges from the internal plasterboard to the decorative finish and everything in between.
The structural component of light gauge steel frame from Frameclad is manufactured to the highest standards of strength and durability, with the benefit of taking the clients plans and turning them into bespoke steel frames to create their own modular units.
The TotalWall system also incorporates non-combustible ROCKWOOL Stone Wool insulation and Kemwell WeatherKem Fibre Cement Board, with a Wetherby Thin Coat Render System finish that can have the application on site to finish off the façade.
Wetherby Thin-Coat Render finishes are lightweight and flexible in nature. This makes them the ideal application onto off-site construction frames, where movement is likely. They also have a wide range of finishes and colour options available to achieve any design aspirations.
The system benefits from being the only ‘through wall’ system on the market to undergo a 2-hour fire test in both directions (from inside to out & outside to in), with temperatures in the furnace reaching over 1100°C. This thorough structural testing has BS EN 1365-1:2012 approval, offering piece of mind to the specifiers, clients and occupants.
The steel frame and external wall system also has the 60-year BOPAS assurance scheme approval. This means the system has a minimum life expectancy of 60 years for durability and maintenance.
