The omega rail, also known as top hat is a simple solution for mounting cladding panels on to any substrate. The Omega Aluminium top hat rails are rated A1, which makes them a better alternative to timber, and easy to install, and are generally used in conjunction with the z rail for flat panel or shiplap/ weatherboarding options to the external cladding of all types of buildings.
They come in 26mm of 40mm depths off the building, and limited the requirement of packers, which are commonly used for timber stud work.
The Omega bars can also be used in horizontal applications when the orientations of the cladding is vertically directed. On request the manufacture Fastframe will provide full calculations, which is fully backed by their PI Insurance. If you have a cladding project please feel free to get in touch with the Kladworx team, and we can offer you the best assistance.
