Fastenings for ventilated facades - Series S
Anchorage systems for ventilated facades
This anchoring system Series S is made of steel (galvanized or stainless) for the vertical mullions and aluminum for the horizontal profiles. This anchoring system is the best solution for ventilated facade with misaligned vertical joint.
The vertical mullions are available in three different types and dimensions according to the project and the static calculation.
The horizontal profiles type S are produced in aluminum EN AW 6060 T6. They are also available in different type S1, S2, S3, S4 and in two different colours, natural grey or anodized black.
This anchoring system is especially designed to allow a fast connection of the cladding panel. This anchoring system is designed to allow the independent installation or dismantle of any cladding panel by means of a special pop-out clip.
The anchoring system is composed of a vertical C shape profile type K2 (X) in steel (Y) cold formed and with slot on the backside, distance 50 mm from slot to slot, cut in bar of exact length according to the project requirements. The vertical groove along the vertical profile allows, with the use of special nut, the front connection of the cladding tile and the fast correction of the level and alignment.
The vertical profiles are fixed to the wall at a specific distance each other (normally in the middle of the vertical joint of the cladding) by means of a steel special bracket (Y), i.e. plate OMEGA shape. The bracket dimension is calculated according to the load and the shape is studied to reduce the thermal bridge. The load brackets are fixed to the structure in concrete by means of anchors (mechanical or chemical) and allows an adjustment of ±20 mm of the vertical alignment. The vertical profile is also fixed along the wall by means of threated bar and anchors according to the wall material.
The horizontal profile type S (W), in aluminium EN AW 6060T6 (Z) is designed to support and hold the marble panel all along the base. This solution helps a lot during the installation of the marble and also reduces the load on the stone. In order to connect the top of the stone to the horizontal profile S, stainless steel A2 (AISI 304) clip must be inserted in the kerf, which is made in the thickness of the stone. The stone is vertically pushed by the installer until the clip is connected to the gap on the bottom of the horizontal profile. The horizontal profile has also a gap on top to allow the connection to the vertical profile without holes.
Series S – Fastenings for ventilated facades benefits
This anchoring system is designed to allow the independent installation or disassembly any stone panel: this is very important during the construction activity or/and for maintenance.
All the elements are produced in the exact length according to the project, with hole and slot: to reduce at minimum the use of electric equipment on site, to speedy up the installation on site, to allow easy levels regulation and alignment, to allow thermal expansion.
Series S – Fastenings for ventilated facades certifications
All the anchoring system elements are produced following high standard of quality according to ISO 9001 and are also CE certified according to the UNI EN 1090.
