ALKAPO

Profile system with closed overspan for visible fixing of large-format façade panels, e. g. made of fibre cement, aluminium composite panels or HPL.

Through using box-shaped carrier profiles, ALKAPO offers a significantly higher load-bearing capacity and is used whenever anchoring is only possible into the floor deck of the respective floor of the building. A sub-structure system based on ALKAPO is comprised of vertical carrier rails, U-shaped wall brackets and optional accessories. According to their thermal load and demand – the wall brackets are made of aluminium or stainless-steel. According to the static engineering demands, we can choose between the support profiles ALKAPO 275 and ALKAPO 350.

The fixing elements are fixed to the support profiles using screws, bolts or rivets.

The carrier profiles are connected to the wall brackets using rivets, or screws. when doing this, the sliding points accept the horizontal (wind) loads and fixed points take up horizontal and vertical loads (dead load). Constraint-free assembly is completed at the sliding points in vertical longitudinal holes. One fixed point is allocated per support profile.

Thermostop Elements are available as thermal dividers in order to minimise thermal bridging.

Cantilever projections up to 480 mm.
