SUPPORT SYSTEMS

SECRET FIX ANCHOR.jpg
 

There are numerous design possibilities using our facade materials, which is why the framing system plays an equally important role.

The requirements for each facade and support system are always different and as such depend on factors such as wind loads, height of the facade, substrate, facade material and intended cladding zone. 

We offer the ability to provide a range of fixing methods along with detailed wind loading calculations as well as U-value assesment on your intended design.

We can also provide cost information at design stage based on your facade design.

Our Under Anchor and Sika Adhesive systems are BBA Certified and all our support systems are manufactured to relevant European and British Standards. 

 

SYSTEMS

static1.squarespace.jpg

SECRET FIX SIKA

System for concealed fix / structural bonding applications – vertical cladding applications. 

'T' and 'L' profiles are fixed using NVELOPE support brackets, fixed through a series of fixed and flexible points. 

Flexible point brackets absorb wind loading and allow for expansion and contraction. 

Fixed point brackets absorb both vertical dead loads. 

Bracket spacing is determined by cladding options such as the dimensions and weight of the facade cladding, local wind loads.

 

SECRET FIX CASSETTE

System for concealed fix cassette (ACM / zinc / aluminium) – vertical cladding applications. 

Secured using cassette hangers to provide a concealed fixing.

'T' and 'L' profiles are fixed using support brackets, fixed through a series of fixed and flexible points. 

Flexible point brackets absorb wind loading and allow for expansion and contraction. 

Fixed point brackets absorb both vertical dead loads. 

Bracket spacing is determined by cladding options such as the dimensions and weight of the facade cladding, local wind loads.

VISIBLE FIX RIVET

System back frame for vertical cladding applications using colour coded rivets.  

'T' and 'L' profiles are fixed using support brackets, fixed through a series of fixed and flexible points. 

Flexible point brackets absorb wind loading and allow for expansion and contraction. 

Fixed point brackets absorb both vertical dead loads. 

Bracket spacing is determined by cladding options such as the dimensions and weight of the façade cladding, local wind loads and cladding zone.

 

SECRET FIX ANCHOR

System is suitable for off-site / factory application of face fixed or concealed fixed plank panelling.

System uses 60 x 40 L profile running vertically fixed into the helping hand bracket with an SR2 screw. 

 

 

 

SECRET FIX ANCHOR

System for concealed fix/mechanically fixed applications – vertical cladding applications. 

Secured using hangers and undercut stud anchors or screws to provide a concealed fixing.

Horizontal  channel profiles are fixed to the vertical profiles. Rainscreen panels are hung from and secured to the horizontal profiles with hangers and adjustable hangers.

Flexible point brackets absorb wind loading and allow for expansion and contraction.

Fixed point brackets absorb both vertical dead loads. 

Bracket spacing is determined by cladding options such as the dimensions and weight of the facade cladding, local wind loads.

 

THERMAL BRACKET

Manufactured from an industrial engineered FR polymer composite, an extremely strong industrial compound with low thermal conductivity and improved U-value performance resulting in reduced heat flow through the rainscreen construction.
