ANS Global turn to Downer the Original Helping Hand Framing System
We’re extremely pleased to be able to include this latest project in our Downer framing portfolio. ANS Global is one of our valued clients, who we’ve had the privilege of working closely with in recent years.
We’re proud to say that our Downer framing systems have been utilised on a large number of their living wall residential and commercial schemes, such as this one. Over the past few months we’ve been busy helping our esteemed clients ANS Global with their inspirational living wall concepts; for which they often choose our Downer framing. This time it was our 25mm Omega Original Helping Hand framing system which was chosen as the envelope framing support, for end client Lidl GB Richmond.
Why Downer Framing was chosen?
“AS LIVING WALL SPECIALISTS AESTHETICS AND STRONG SUSTAINABILITY ETHICS ARE HIGH ON OUR CREDENTIALS LIST. DOWNER FRAMING TICKS BOTH OF THOSE AND IS ALSO EXTREMELY COST EFFECTIVE AND VERSATILE – NEATLY SUPPORTING OUR LIVING WALL RAIN SCREENS IN A NON INVASIVE AND EASY TO MOUNT WAY. THE OMEGA AND ZED DCS021 FRAMING SYSTEM ALLOWED US TO INSTALL OUR RAINSCREEN SEAMLESSLY WITH STRIKING EFFECT.”
Apparently their install team said ‘People were stopping by all day to find out more about the wall, the plants and how it all works!’ Fantastic.

Our Downer Framing DCS021 system overview
Downer DCS021 framing system is designed to provide vertical support to most rainscreen cladding panels using the principle of a ventilated façade.
Omega and Zed extruded rails are designed to be installed onto a continuous structural load bearing substrate to offer direct support to the cladding panels by face or adhesive fixing them.
It can also be used as a support working in combination with our other framing systems such us as DCS004 Mechanical Secret Fix or combined with DCS031 & DCS041, or another layer of DCS021 Omega and Zeds to provide horizontally orientated support rails.
Our customer service team was also highly commended by ANS. Thank you for the great feedback Andrew and we look forward to working on more projects with your team.
“I CAN’T FAULT YOUR DOWNER FRAMING TEAM, FROM AN OPERATIONS PERSPECTIVE THEY HAVE BEEN FAULTLESS. JUAN AND INES IN PARTICULAR HAVE BEEN A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH.”
