The structure is made up of profiles and brackets manufactured via the extrusion of aluminium alloy, with a minimum thickness of 2 mm.
The structure will be tied to the support in order to absorb thermal expansion/shrinkage and subsidence of the support itself so that the external covering is not affected by any possible future induced stress.
The safety of the system must be guaranteed via a subsequent check for every single project, in accordance with the norms relating to wind pressure/depression.
Specific description of the system
The fixing of the brackets to the underlying support must be carried out using adequately sized plugs suitable for the specific type of support. The fixing of profiles onto the brackets will be carried out using rivets with “fixed point” and “sliding point” depending on the project specifications.
Horizontal looped profiles will then be anchored to the vertical profiles, these horizontal profiles will be duly sized so that the stress due to the action of wind is axial with respect to the clips.
This system calls for the slabs to undergo mechanical manufacturing on the back of them and the subsequent introduction of special steel inserts.
This device has been designed for the anchorage of the clips that will be then fixed to the horizontal profiles.
1. After drawing the element positioning on the facade, according to the design, drill and fix the brackets by means of mechanical or chemical plugs.
2. The insulating material shall be fixed by means of 3/4 nylon plugs m2.
3. At this point the vertical uprights are assembled and then aligned parallel to a plumb line.
4. After making the holes, insert the rivets and lock. Rivets are inserted according to the project specifications, so as to create either "fixed" points or "sliding" points.
5. Now it is possible to fix the horizontal profiles slotted at the correct height. (See "panel preparation").
6. The panel shall be “hung” by fastening the clips to the horizontal profile.
7. Finally, adjust the screws on the adjusting clips so as to obtain horizontal joints of the right size.
8. Finally, adjust the screws on the adjusting clips so as to obtain horizontal joints of the right size.
