MFT-FOX VT-1L-CLAMPS-STAINLESS STEEL


The system consists of profiles plus wall brackets that eliminate thermal bridging and is specifically designed for vertical substructures and systems that use visible stainless steel clamps on ventilated facades.

The wall brackets are supplied with a powder-coated base plate, according with the method of installation to 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.

The panels are glued to the vertical profiles with structural adhesive and the clamps guarantee that the panels will not move while the adhesive hardens. The stainless steel clamps are directly screwed to the vertical profiles.

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 fastened 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. The base plate of the bracket is powder coated for corrosion resistance. The stainless steel clamps are fastened to the vertical profile by rivets or screws.
