A profile system for concealed fixing of large-format facade panels, e. g. made of fibre cement, HPL, ceramics, natural stone or glass, by means of panel support profiles on the reverse.
A sub-structure system based on UBEKA is comprised of vertical aluminium T-support profiles, wall brackets, optional accessories, horizontal lug profiles, which are arranged with the same separation distances as the cladding grid, and vertical panel carrier profiles. According to their thermal loading and demands – the wall brackets are made of aluminium, stainless-steel or glass fibre reinforced polyamide.
UBEKA permits exchanging, replacing or subsequent insertion of individual cladding elements, without the adjacent element needing to be displaced from its previously installed position.
ALKAPO can be used as the base system for buildings whose outer walls are not suitable for use as anchoring substrates.
The aluminium T-carrier profiles are connected to the wall brackets using rivets, screws or bolts. When doing this, the sliding points take up the horizontal (wind) loads and fixed points take up the horizontal and vertical loads (dead loads). Constraint-free installation is achieved in the vertical sliding holes. One fixed point is allocated per support profile.
At least two vertical panel support profiles are required for each fixing element, which are connected to the lug profiles.
Wall brackets can optionally be equipped with an assembly aide, which makes fixing and holding the support profile possible, to simplify working with it.
Thermostop Elements are available as thermal dividers to minimise thermal bridging.
Protrusions of up to 480 mm.
