How did you first learn about Frameclad?
When I thought of it! I used SFS for the first time at Brighton station (New England Quarter) using metal from EOS but designed by Nik Teagle who now runs DACS. When I set up Frameclad the first person to supply me with SFS was Martin Jamieson then at WA Brown and after that SFS from Phil Dufty. When I did the job at Brighton I was working for Southern Maze and buying render from Envirowall whose sales Director was Paul Winwood. All these people now work within Frameclad!
