Ash and Lacy AxiAL Support System
The AxiAL range of rainscreen support systems and lightweight framing components has been developed by Ash and Lacy to offer a diverse selection of generic framing options that can accommodate a wide spectrum of materials and design requirements. The SCI assessed the Ash & Lacy structural design methodology for the AxiAL façade support system, including reviewing the following aspects of technical information and procedures:
- Bracket test procedures
- Determination of characteristic resistances
- Analysis and design of the system mullions
- Calculation procedures for the system design resistances.
SCI Assessed status has been awarded to the AxiAL Support System resistance procedures. The full scope of the products and data covered by the assessment are described in SCI Report RT 1766 v01 March 2018.
