Fixing system for aluminium composite facade cladding
Aluminium composite is a popular material for facade cladding: it has a long lifespan, looks great and it is versatile. Aluminium composite panels (ACP) must be properly fixed to the sub-frame system. The fixing system must meet high quality and performance standards. The new i-Facade fixing system is an efficient and reliable solution for tension-free fixing of ACP panels to aluminium profiles.
This new fixing system uses the 0707 screw and the 0521 centring and spacer sleeves and tubes. The 0707 screw is a stainless steel drill screw with a head of 16 mm and has the advantage that it can be installed without creating stress. The 0521 centring and spacer sleeves and tubes are plastic sleeves that make sure that the panels are connected accurately to the aluminium profiles, at the right distance. These components allow fast and correct installation of the panels.
Another benefit of this new fixing system is that the protective film can be removed from the panels after all panels have been installed. This is a great advantage, because removing the film during installation can cause scratches or damage to the panels.
The fixing system consists of the following components:
0707 SB 5.5 x 25: Stainless steel drill screw with a 16 mm head
0521-Slide tube: Plastic centring sleeve (green)
0521 Fix tube: Plastic centring sleeve (red)
0801 Cutting Tool: This tool can be used to cut the protective foil on the panel in advance, so that the foil can be easily removed after mounting.
The red tube, called the Fix Tube, fixes the plate and keeps it in place. The green tube, the Slide Tube, gives the plate/construction room to expand.
The benefits of the new fixing system: efficient, tension-free and reliable attachment of ACP panels to aluminium profiles, the protective film can be removed after all panels have been mounted, quick and correct installation. The fixing system is suitable for various purposes, such as facade cladding, roof edge finishing, and dormer windows.
The fixing system was developed by IPEX, expert in facade systems and cladding. Our company is known for its innovative solutions and high-quality products for the facade industry. The new fixing system is the result of years of experience and expertise in the field of facade cladding.
The fixing system is easy to install and can be used with different types of aluminium composite panels. It is also suitable for different types of surfaces, such as concrete, wood and steel. The system can be applied to both new and existing buildings and is a sustainable and safe solution for facade cladding.
The new i-Facade fixing system is an efficient and reliable solution for tension-free fastening of ACP panels to aluminium profiles. The system is easy to install and has many benefits, such as the possibility to remove the protective film only after all panels have been mounted. This fixing system contributes to safe and sustainable facade cladding and other structures made with aluminium composite panels.
