For vertical load transfer of ventilated rainscreen façades.
The vertical profiles of the subframe systems for ventilated rainscreen façades are made of aluminum. They are used for vertical load transfer of the occurring loads and pass them on to the next subframe elements. The vertical profiles are connected to the other substructure elements with system rivets. Together with the wall holders and their projection length, the geometry of the vertical profile determines façade offset. This system also enables the compensation of structural tolerances of the building substrate. Direct fixing of façade panels to the vertical profiles can be visibly riveted/screwed or invisibly glued. In addition, the profiles can be used as a distance substructure and as a base structure (e.g. for horizontal systems with concealed fixings). Different geometries allow applications for all cladding materials. The profiles are available in 6 m lengths as standard.
