Subframe system made from high quality aluminum for visible or concealed fastening of large-format cladding panels, e.g. made of fiber cement, aluminum composite material (ACM) or high pressure laminate (HPL).
In conjunction with an additional rail system also suitable for fastening of terracotta/clay tiles.
The ALWI T2 subframe system is comprised of vertical L-shaped and T-shaped aluminum profiles, wall brackets, horizontal hat channels and optional accessories. According to their thermal load and requirements, the wall brackets are made of aluminum or stainless steel.
The cladding elements are fastened visibly to the rails using screws or rivets or are adhered concealed to the rails, screwed on as concealed sidings or fastened with a system rail.
The wall brackets are fixed by means of a horizontal hat profile through a a shethihng or a rigid insulation to studs using screws. The wall brackets can optionally be fitted with an assembly aide to simplify working with them, which makes fixing and holding possible for the vertical rails.
The T and L rails are connected to the wall brackets using screws or rivets. When doing this, sliding points accept horizontal (wind) loads and fixed points accept horizontal and vertical loads (dead load). Constraint-free installation is achieved at the sliding points in vertical longitudinal holes. One fixed point is allocated for each support rail.
Protrusions of up to 320 mm with aluminum Flex L brackets and up to
400 mm with stainless steel L brackets.
Thermostop elements are available as thermal dividers to minimise thermal bridging.
