The name Ash & Lacy been synonymous with product innovation and high standards of engineering for over 165 years.

From very humble beginnings, Ash & Lacy has grown into a company with a group annual turnover in excess of £70 million, now employing over 350 staff based across five UK office locations. The Ash & Lacy group manufactures an exciting range of products and systems for the construction, automotive, acoustic and audio markets, exporting globally to over 10 countries including partnerships in Europe, Australia and South Africa.

In the construction sector, we manufacture a diverse range of engineered facade and roofing systems tailored to the architectural sector, complemented by a comprehensive range of fasteners, load bearing components and accessories. Our in-house testing facilities, as well as design and engineering analysis capabilities ensures that all Ash & Lacy products are at the forefront of technical performance, and often exceed industry standards.




  1. Metal Facades Rainscreen Façades are cladding systems applied either during the initial construction of a building or an over-cladding as part of refurbishment of an existing building. These provide an outer weather resistant decorative skin, fixed to a structure by means of a supporting grid, and maintain a cavity which is ventilated and drained, between itself and the primary structure.
  2. NaturAL-X Brick Cladding A lightweight, mechanically-fixed brick cladding system delivering all the benefits of natural clay brick. Featuring unique clay brick slips and 6063T6 grade aluminium support rails, the system is available in a wide range of colours and textures.
  3. Mechslip Brick Cladding Mechslip is not an extruded brick slip. This genuine brick innovation allows architects and specifiers to use real brick slips with the inspired efficiency and versatility of a mechanically fixed brick slip cladding system.
  4. AshGrid DuoTherm Roofing & Cladding AshGrid™ DuoTherm is the latest innovation from Ash & Lacy, combining our tried and trusted AshGrid™ spacer systems with non-combustible thermal insulation, a choice of our standing seam or profiled sheet coverings, solid and acoustic liner, and all the fixings and ancillaries required for a comprehensive systemised solution.
  5. Steel Frame Systems The cold rolled Steel Frame system range offers a structurally robust and dimensionally stable, warm spaced wall construction that can be used with the majority of external finishes, across most applications. Ash & Lacy’s component supply, structural stud and track system, is available to suit both infill and oversail steel frame systems, both of which provide early weather protection capability to the building, and offer many advantages over traditional construction methods.
