Maple is a leading designer, manufacturer and installer of solar shading, weather protection and screening for building exteriors and interiors. Since 1983, we’ve been combining innovation, technical excellence and exceptional customer service to deliver projects that save energy, create visual impact and make buildings more comfortable for their occupants.


Our Approach


Collaboration - We work with architects, contractors and suppliers to get under the skin of every project from Day One.


Consultation – We’re experts in our field and share our knowledge to achieve success - we care about every project as much as our clients do.


Delivery - We make sure every concept is buildable and can be manufactured and installed safely - on time and on budget.


Rainscreen Cladding

Rainscreen cladding systems are designed to perform well in a number of areas. Firstly, as the name suggests, they must protect the exterior of buildings from the weather. They must also improve thermal performance (reducing heat loss and saving energy), meet fire and combustibility standards, and improve a building’s appearance... all within a commercially viable solution for clients.

 

As well as meeting the latest fire-safety standards, our system has been through stringent CWCT lab-testing and has been designed to BS8414:2 2020 standards. But what exactly is rainscreen cladding, and what should you be thinking about when specifying it for a building project? Read more about how rainscreen cladding works

Architectural Façades

Architectural façades enhance the aesthetic of buildings by using different designs and methods of manufacture. As well as being aligned to clients’ visions and budgets, it is important that architectural façade systems – whether made up of solid panels, vertical fins or expanded mesh - comply with building and fire regulations.

Maple's in-house design and pre-construction team carries out desktop simulation, detailed calculations and real-life lab tests to ensure our systems are fire-safe and structurally sound.

Architectural façade - perforated panel

Our perforated architectural panels can be created in aluminium or Corten steel. Each aluminium or Corten façade panel is perforated according to the custom design of the façade. Installation is fast and efficient thanks to Maple's engineered bracket design. 

Each perforated façade panel can be colour-treated to meet the concept design theme – and all panels are bi-metallic corrosion protected. 


Other options include image perforation which allow the pattern of the holes to replicate a picture or theme.


Features

  • Flexible design and orientation - vertical or horizontal
  • Perforated pattern based on fabrication drawing designs
  • Powder-coated or anodised to add colour and effect
  • Aluminium or Corten material finish
  • Lightweight and versatile panels incorporate a fixed pin arrangement
  • Maple-design fixing for easy of installation
  • Brackets fit curtain walling mullions
  • All fixings A2 stainless steel with bi-metallic corrosion protection
  • Fitted by fully certified façade installers
  • Three-year manufacturer's warranty

Architectural façade - fins positioned vertically or horizontally


Linear façades are a good way to add an architectural feature to a building envelope. Each blade can be positioned vertically or horizontally. There is also a range of material specifications that can be used to align to your concept designs.


Features

  • Flexible design and orientation - vertical or horizontal
  • Various material and finish specifications available (see blade options below)
  • Grade 6063 T6 extruded aluminium profiled blades can be set to desired pitch
  • Brackets fit curtain walling mullions

Architectural façade - twisted fin

Twisted fins can be configured to meet the different aspects of any design brief. The angle and position of the twist, orientation and overall pattern can all be designed to meet the most exacting requirements of any façade.  

In car park projects, Maple's twisted fin façade blades have a spring-load mechanism to counter the natural building movement and retain the blade pattern and positioning. We also offer a range of materials to provide a shine or colour option. 


Features

  • Flexible design and orientation - vertical or horizontal
  • Aluminium blades are powder-coated or anodised for a shined or coloured finish (see blade options below)
  • Grade 6063 T6 extruded aluminium profiled blades can be set to desired pitch
  • Brackets fit curtain walling mullions
  • All fixings A2 stainless steel
  • Fitted by fully certified façade installers
  • Three-year manufacturer's warranty
