From CWCT to Award-winning Landmark Façade


As a cladding systems manufacturer with over 60 years of experience in this market sector, we are continually investing in the development and testing of systems that meet and exceed the strict guidelines set out by building regulations and CWCT (Centre for Window and Cladding Technology)



CWCT is a publisher of standards and guidance on corrosion, intrusion, fenestration, weather and fire resistance, acoustic and impact performance, of building envelopes, facades, cladding and glazing.

Eltherington carried out a full project specific CWCT test for the raisncreen facade on this award- winning Landmark project.

The façade test rig passed the full CWCT Sequence B test with large 3mm thick aluminium panels at 4m x 1m on our Hilti Eurofox subframe.

CWCT sequence B tests the Air-Permeability, watertightness, wind resistance, water penetration and impact resistance, ensuring the full system performs physically and the maintenance and servicing can be done safely.

Our TFS1 through fix systems uses only solid aluminium in both the panel and Hilti Eurofox subframe.  Available in either A2 rated PPC finish or A1 rated pre-paint or anodized finishes. We have an unrivalled choice of finishes and panel designs as shown in our rainscreen brochure.

The Award-winning Landmark is located on St Peter’s Square, Manchester’s premier business district, and provides 180,000 sq ft of exceptional workspace, developed by Barings and designed by world-renowned architects Squire & Partners
