The Fenestration And Cladding Engineering Technology Scheme was originally published as an interactive CD-ROM covering many aspects of building envelopes and glazing.  It comprises over 100 topics in fourteen packages.

FACETS was developed by the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology with funding from the Department of Trade and Industry, Focus Technical programme.

September 2019

We have taken the decision to make FACETS available as an online resource.

FACETS was published in 2002 in order to facilitate technology transfer, information sharing and best practise within the façade sector.

Whilst now slightly dated, FACETS still provides a very useful source of technical information in a areas of façade engineering.

FACETS has not been maintained or updated since it was first published. Please therefore be aware that some of the technology together with references to standards and so on will be out of date.
