The fischer stand-off installation systems Thermax 8 and Thermax 10 are solutions for thermally separated fixation in external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS) and non-load-bearing layers. The threaded rod has a glass-fibre-reinforced cone and cuts its own way through the plaster and into the insulation material without a setting tool. This saves time and money. The cone on the head of the threaded rod interrupts the thermal bridge. The system is adjustable, which makes installation easier. The fischer Thermax 8 and 10 can hold medium-sized loads such as lights, letterboxes, and lightning rods in concrete, aerated concrete, and masonry made from perforated or solid brick.
