Building Envelope Trisobuild® wall systems

Trisobuild® wall systems

An attractive and economic range of steel wall profiles to meet the aesthetic requirements of the designer

Trisobuild® systems comprise of a pre-finished steel trapezoidal liner profile, a spacer system, an insulation layer and a Colorcoat® pre-finished steel external weathering profile. The wide range of profiles offer total design flexibility.  

Trisobuild systems have excellent sustainability credentials, for example they are all certified to BES 6001, the BRE responsible sourcing standard. The system can also boast low levels of air permeability and good thermal performance over the life of the building, which is due to the quality of components used and proven performance. This reduces energy costs, carbon emission rates and facilitates compliance with Building Regulations.

  • The Colorcoat® pre-finished steel products that our wall profiles are manufactured from have been tested in accordance with BS EN 14782 to provide the specifier with the peace of mind of specification declarations and that the components meet the legal requirements set out in the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) and are affixed with a CE mark.
  • Easily handled on site without specialist mechanical equipment, due to its lightweight components. This is important on sites with limited access.
  • Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) approval to LPS 1181 part 1 for fire performance, helps to lower insurance premiums.
  • Fire resistance performance of up to 60 minutes insulation and 4 hours integrity are achievable, with standard installation methods.
  • Full traceability of all component materials and certified ‘very good’ to BRE’s responsible sourcing standard BES 6001.
  • Certification to BES 6001 provides independent evidence of our corporate responsibility, and helps increase credits under the Responsible Sourcing of Materials section of BREEAM.
  • An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is available for all the Trisobuild® system solutions.
  • Manufactured in factory conditions operating to quality management standard BS EN ISO 9001:2015, environmental management standard BS EN ISO 14001: 2015 and occupational health and safety management scheme BS EN ISO 18001:2007.

Platinum® Plus provides a complete building envelope solution guaranteed for up to 30 years. Designed in collaboration with our innovative supply chain of leading component manufacturers, our comprehensive portfolios of high quality products are fully integrated to provide the widest range of roofing and cladding systems.

The Platinum Plus guarantee includes, amongst others, the following components:

  • Trisobuild® systems wall profile in Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® or Colorcoat Prisma® pre-finished steel.
  • Trisobuild® systems liner profile.
  • Stainless steel fixings.
  • Roof lights.
  • Sealants.
  • Fillers.
  • Fall arrest systems.
  • Flashings and gutters.

The guarantee is offered directly to building owners, giving a direct link back to Tata Steel as the one point of contact.

For full details of our approved components please contact our technical team on +44 (0) 1244 892199.

To ensure that the building envelope will perform as required by the client, we work with specifiers to tailor a specification that considers the interactions of the components and how they impact the building design and performance. We will then provide a detailed Platinum Plus specification for use within the project tender package, together with a list of recommended installation contractors.

To guarantee the quality of components used on your building, our team of technical construction experts will visit the site to check for compliance to specification, reducing the risk of any issues arising in the future. Once the project is completed the installer will be required to apply for the guarantee using the supplied forms included in the specification document. Tata Steel will then issue the Platinum Plus guarantee directly to the building owner.

How to raise a specification?

The Platinum Plus system guarantee needs to be registered with the specifier prior to the tender package being distributed. Please contact our technical team so that we can help you to guarantee the longevity of your building on +44 (0) 1244 892199.

Thermal performance

Trisobuild® systems comply with the Building Regulations (Approved Document Part L2 – England Wales & Technical Handbook 6 – Scotland). All quoted system U-values and construction ‘psi’ and f values have been computer modelled in accordance with EN ISO 10211 as stated in MCRMA Technical Note 14 by trained and experienced technical engineers.

Fire performance

The Colorcoat® pre-finished steel products used within the Trisobuild system meet the requirements the Building Regulations Approved Document B for internal and external surfaces.

Trisobuild systems can also offer a Grade EXT-B and EXT-A approval by the LPCB together with fire resistance of up to 60 minutes insulation and 4 hours integrity.

Trisobuild® systems can offer a wide variety of sound reduction and sound absorption solutions, using variations in liner and insulation specification.

Many assemblies have been tested through independent acoustic laboratories. We have further test data and the ability to offer predicted performance ratings using software developed by the Department of Applied Acoustics, University of Salford and the Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA).

Please contact us and provide details of your requirements to the technical department and our engineers will work with you to develop a solution to achieve the performance levels necessary.
