Refurbishment and Cladding Replacement

R-MER Shield LT achieves A1 fire classification, making it the ideal system to replace any failed facade or combustible cladding that does not meet Approved Document B building regulations or fire classification standards. 

The extruded subframe fixes directly into the existing concrete floor slabs and requires fewer fixing brackets and penetrations, significantly minimising disruption to building occupants.

  • Fire Classification A1 rated
  • NyRock® non-combustible insulation
  • No insulation cutting required

Thermal Performance Upgrades

R-MER Shield LT significantly contributes to improved thermal performance of the building, where the inclusion of NyRock® stone wool insulation provides maximum thermal performance from minimal insulation thickness. 

Utilising the high-performance fixing brackets from Hilti, the R-MER Shield LT system prevents heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer to enhance the overall energy efficiency of the building and align seamlessly with sustainable construction practices.

Cladding profiles showing smooth, macro and micro panels

Crafted from high-grade aluminium, our profile options boast a wide range of customisation possibilities, available in an array of corrosion-resistant and UV-resistant coatings, allowing you to select the perfect finish that complements your building’s environment.

Seamlessly integrating with Hilti’s substructure solutions, R-MER Shield LT is engineered to minimise thermal bridging while creating a rear ventilation void. This innovative design effectively evaporates moisture away from the core building structure, contributing to temperature regulation within the building.

Wide range of colour coated aluminium profiles 

Enhance the visual appeal of your building with R-MER Shield LT’s striking finishes. Our colour coated finishes, available in a wide range of RAL colours, allows for complete creativity. Whether you prefer bold, vibrant hues or subtle, classic tones, our extensive palette ensures that your cladding perfectly complements your architectural design.
