Prime HPX (formerly Prime VII)

Prime HPX Rainscreen comprises a support structure, typically Prime SF, which uses brackets to fix the vertical mullion hook carriage to the frame.

Hook & Pin Fix Rainscreen Panel


A project-specific delivery can be developed by determining the design and wind performance requirements, enabling the hook centres and support pins to be accurately calculated.

Prime HPX Rainscreen allows a change of direction to be incorporated into the design quickly and effectively. This is because both internal and external corners are only limited by the choice of material and colour of the system.

The system also provides a robust canvas for the designers to work on as soffits and copings can be seamlessly incorporated into the facade.

The Prime HPX Rainscreen layer can accommodate an in-plane tolerance adjustment of +/- 7mm as standard. If the Prime SF support structure is also adopted as part of the facade, greater tolerance can be accommodated which in turn contributes to the longevity of the installation’s aesthetics.

Prime HPX has been independently tested at Wintech Engineering in line with the stringent CWCT standards for systemised building envelopes. For more information click here.

The system was incorporated on the BBC Media City project and tested for air tightness achieving 0.17m³/hr/m² @ 600 Pa.

Prime systems can be supplied in a spectrum of colours and materials, such as: Aluminium, ACM Natural, ACM Design, Brass, Copper, Stainless Steel and Zinc.

Prime TFX (formerly Prime II)

Prime II is a traditional through-fix rainscreen panel system.

These include ACM (Aluminium Composite Material), copper, plywood and steel. A key […]

Prime RFX (formerly Prime III)

Prime RFX is a recessed fixed panel system offering visual depth for the building facade with the fixings hidden in the recess where the panels meet.   In order to obtain a clean design all of the recesses in the joint are developed so that the colour continues into the space between the panels. To […]

Prime SFX (formerly Prime V)

Prime SFX has evolved from the PlanoWall Rainscreen system with enhancements made to ensure the CWCT testing criteria was met.   Like the PlanoWall system before it Prime SFX is based on a system of cassette panels which interlock on the top edge, concealing the panel fixings.  With Prime SFX the spanning capacity has also […]
