Prefabricated building components manufacturer FabSpeed, part of the Michelmersh Group, has launched a new brick cladding support system in collaboration with facade solutions firm Cladmate.

CMS40 is a lightweight, easy-to-install, cost-effective solution for mechanically fixed, non-combustible brick slips. It is suitable for multiple construction projects, from volume high or low-rise projects to new-builds or retrofit applications, and can be applied to both indoor and outdoor facades.

CMS40 offers reduced on-site labour for shorter project durations, installation cost savings, improved production safety and quality procedures, enhanced precision and environmental advantages through waste reduction, system recyclability and re-use.

Clay bricks are renowned for their strength, fire resistance, thermal and acoustic performance and beauty and provide enduring quality alongside long-life expectancy.

With a variety of colours and textures, clay brick slips offer design flexibility and adaptability, which can evolve over generations while also complementing change in architectural vision. CMS40 is versatile, freeing architects to choose less standard brick bonds and projecting brickwork patterns that give facades more depth.

The CMS40 support system incorporates 70 per cent recycled aluminium as its primary component and as such is fully recyclable, promoting circular principles, similar to its clay brick counterpart.

Its dismantlable and reusable nature coupled with clay brick slips, can ensure a full aesthetic revision with only mortar replacement, ensuring it aligns with sustainable building practices and makes it an ideal choice for secondary applications.

CMS40 can be specified with a wide selection of clay brick slip products from Michelmersh's core range. Additionally, FabSpeed's team of skilled craftspeople can customise slips from various manufacturers' clay products, providing tailored solutions to meet every project's challenges.

Certified for fire safety and environmental standards, CMS40 has undergone rigorous testing, including BS 8414-2:2020 and CWCT standards, with BBA certification covering both Parex lime-based and Instamac cement-based mortars.

The lightweight framework system reduces structural load and has an A1 non-combustible rating, ensuring safety throughout its lifecycle.

CMS40 is available through FabSpeed with components that can be supplied directly from Cladmate to offer an efficient and reliable supply chain.
