MFT-FOX VT-1L-ADHESIVE-RIVETS-SCREWS


The system consists of profiles plus wall brackets that eliminate thermal bridging and is specifically designed for vertical substructures in ventilated facades. The wall brackets are supplied with a powder-coated base plate, according with the method of installation on the base material — anchors, screws and direct fastening — with the appropriate hole geometries in the base plate.

The wall brackets are designed with both fixed and flexible points to allow for thermal expansion of the profile. The fixed point takes the weight of the panels and substructure and the proportional wind loads, while the flexible point only assumes the proportional wind loads.

Vertical profiles are connected to the wall brackets with specially designed screws for fixed and flexible points. This allows virtually frictionless movement of the profiles relative to the wall brackets and keeps the profile connected by the fixed point in place. The flexible point makes sure that no additional loads are applied to the substructure by expansion forces exerted by the profile.

Adjustment of the profiles relative to the wall brackets is assisted by a «helping hand». The helping hand keeps the profile in position whilst the profile is being fixed with screws, allowing fast connection to the bracket. With this system, wall tolerances of up to 40 mm can be perfectly compensated. The wall brackets are available in lengths from 140 mm to 320 mm. To avoid corrosion, the bracket base plate is powder coated.

Advantages

  • Flexible design using fixed and flexible points
  • 40 mm adjustment capability of the profiles on the wall brackets
  • Bracket length from 140 mm to 320 mm
  • Brackets can be installed using a range of methods — anchors, screws or direct fastening
  • Powder-coated base plate for corrosion resistance
  • Substructures can be designed with PROFIS Facade to create technically sound, cost-efficient solutions
