Profile system for concealed fixing of natural stone panels by means of a milled groove.
A sub-structure system based on NASTO-N is comprised of vertical L-shaped and T-shaped aluminium support profiles, wall brackets and optional accessories. According to thermal loading and demands – wall brackets are made out of aluminium, stainless-steel or glass fibre reinforced polyamide.
The cladding elements require a groove at the upper and lower edges of the panel.
This construction is especially well suited for panel sizes up to 1500 mm in height. The advantages arise thanks to the horizontal support profile above all things when laying them in cross bond, as cladding can be effortlessly arranged offset on the support profiles.
The support profiles are connected to the wall brackets using screws or rivets. When doing this, sliding points take up horizontal (wind) loads and fixed points take up horizontal and vertical loads (dead load). Constraint-free assembly is achieved at the sliding points in the vertical longitudinal holes. One fixed point is allocated per support profile.
Wall brackets can be optionally fitted with an installation aide, which makes fixing and holding the support profile possible, to make working with them easier.
Thermostop Elements are available as thermal dividers, to minimise thermal bridging.
Protrusions of up to 480 mm.
