Shackerley: A leading UK Cladding Manufacturer
How Our Cladding Company Began
Shackerley (Holdings) Group is an independently-owned, British rainscreen cladding company with a rich industrial heritage that stretches back over half a century. Founded by Lancashire entrepreneur, Brian G Newell, Shackerley began in the ceramics industry with porcelain tiles and we have always been involved in the manufacture, prefabrication and distribution of technical porcelain products that offer flexible design and installation benefits for architects, construction professionals and façade specialists.
SureClad® Ceramic Granite (Porcelain Stone®) Cladding Systems
Today, Shackerley is a major UK manufacturer of non combustible rainscreen cladding systems. With ISO 9001 accredited factories in Lancashire, we are UK’s market leader in the design, manufacture and supply of fire safe cladding systems for building façades. Our SureClad® Ceramic Granite porcelain cladding systems have pioneered the use of large format cladding panels, winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for innovation.
Investment in equipment, facilities, software systems and training at our Lancashire cladding factories have enabled us to remain at the forefront of the cladding sector, providing façade design solutions for architects and innovative cladding fixing systems for construction professionals.
We have continued to innovate in the cladding sector and ensure our rainscreen cladding systems meet the needs of specifiers throughout the lifespan of the building. This includes offering large format cladding panels and bespoke cladding details, providing a huge array of cladding materials, colourways and finishes, and adding new cladding systems to our range.
We have been particularly driven to ensure the safety of cladding systems. All our cladding systems are A1 or A2-s1-d0 rated to EN13501-1, ensuring we can offer a non combustible cladding solution for any project. We also offer a safety meshing process and have developed an A1 rated safety meshing system. As a result, our SureClad cladding systems are popular choice across a wide range of façades, including residential, offices, hospitals, schools and local authority buildings.
