Cost-effective, efficient and compliant design
Energy-saving regulations are often a key factor when designing the optimum build-up and selecting the right substructure can have a big impact. We can support you with everything you require from planning, through to the selection and installation of your façade; with our complete range of systems including a passive-house certified thermal bridge-free solution.
Whatever panel system you are working with, whether it be A1 rated metal cassettes or natural materials, we have a cost-optimised solution designed to meet your requirements.
Now, with the introduction of the new Hilti Fox-VI small bracket, we can further optimise the design with a potential saving of up to 20% across the total value of a typical project. This will not only have an impact on the overall cost of the build but also the volume of raw material required to complete the build.
Why the right design is crucial
The trend in construction is towards increased thermal requirements and achieving low U-values, reducing insulation thickness. What does this mean for the selection of the substructure and the usable space within the building? Click below for more information.

What we need from you
Every project has individual requirements. By filling out the checklist, this will enable our team to analyse your project and calculate it in detail according to your wishes.
- View plans
The substructure must be adapted to the properties of the cladding material. Based on your AutoCAD® drafts, we can adjust the calculations accordingly.
- Relevant documents
In order to provide you with the best possible solution, we need all the relevant documents for your project. These include, but are not limited, to vertical sections.
Hilti can assist you in helping to ensure that the components of your ventilated façade system are legally compliant with national or European codes.

Testing, Approvals, Warranty and Certificates
Peace of mind with comprehensive product warranty and corrosion resistance
Our ventilated façade systems are covered by a 15 year, project specific product warranty. Furthermore, our solutions have successfully passed numerous statics, earthquake and thermal conductivity tests and are rated as corrosion resistant for up to 30 years.
The Centre for Window & Cladding Technology tests for external cladding systems demonstrate how well the cladding system will resist the everyday challenges it will face from the weather by testing how resistant it is to water penetration, impacts from objects hurled at the cladding system and its resistance to the strain of wind.
The British Board of Agrement (BBA) certification tests various aspects of the product, such as impact tests, fire reaction tests, production procedures and quality, the installation guidance etc. before stating that they are satisfied the product is suitable for numerous construction applications .Hilti Fox-V / VI BBA Approval
