Profile system for concealed fixing of large-format facade panels and natural stone panels, for photovoltaic-modules and solar energy activated thermal panels with brackets reverse of the panel.

A sub-structure system based on UBE is comprised of vertical T-shaped aluminium carrier profiles, wall brackets, optional accessories and horizontal support rails, arranged with the same separation distance as the cladding grid. According to thermal loading and demands – the wall brackets are made of aluminium or stainless-steel.

ALKAPO can be used as the base system for buildings whose outer walls are not suitable for use as anchoring substrates.

The 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 load). Constraint-free installation is achieved in the sliding points in vertical longitudinal holes. One fixed point is allocated for each support profile.

At least two horizontal carrier rails are required for each cladding element, which must be fixed to the support profiles using screws, bolts or rivets.

We suspend the cladding elements in places using brackets, which are fixed and secured to the reverse of the cladding elements using special dowels or undercut rivets and anchors. Height adjustment is possible for cladding using a setting screw.

The wall brackets can optionally be fitted with an installation aide, which makes fixing and holding the carrier profile possible, to simplify working with them.

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

Protrusions of up to 480 mm.
