Get the insights, materials and precision engineering know-how you need to be able to build with confidence. Crossen Engineering takes you from design through to final production, including engineering all the tooling needed to manufacture the metal components for your construction project.
We’ll help to select the ideal metal, then use our range of pressing capacity to deliver anything from cost-effective low- volume runs through to 200,000 units per week.
Set the foundations for a successful project by drawing upon our engineering experience, data analysis and flow simulation technology to hone your design.
Avoid costly delays and control your lead times by completing all prototyping, tooling and manufacturing at our premises outside Belfast, N. Ireland.
We hold ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for quality management, so the standards of service and manufacturing you can expect you are as safe as houses.
Having collaborated frequently with customers on lintels, flashings, window products, we were approached by a customer during development of a non-combustible cavity tray system.
Our tool room team worked with the customer to develop a patented interlocking joint overlap, which creates a watertight joint without the use of sealants, and a weep vent through which water is channeled out. After selecting a 304 austenitic stainless steel that gives the system a lifespan of more than 125 years, we undertook a process of prototyping, trialling and full production to perfect each of the integral metal components.
We also ensured the design complies with Document B of the Fire Safety Regulations (2019), which requires the use of steel framing systems in the external cavity in buildings over 18m following the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
The customer has now taken to market its A1 fire rated cavity tray system, which provides damp-proof course protection over lintels, masonry supports, soffit systems and other cavity elements. The product not only improves safety in taller buildings, but also limits the opportunity for installation errors on site.
We would love to talk to you about tooling and metal forming of robust and long-lasting metal components for your upcoming construction projects.
