Profile system for visible fixing of small-format and large-format cladding materials made of wood as well as façade cladding panels, e. g. made of fibre cement, aluminium composite panels or HPL, to vertical wooden supports.

A sub-structure system based on ALHO is comprised of adapters for taking up wooden lengths, wall brackets and optional accessories. According to their thermal loading and demands – the wall brackets are made of aluminium or stainless-steel.

The wood adapters with structural design widths of 50, 60 and 100 mm accept the vertical wooden elements, onto which cladding or counter battens (secondary construction) are secured.

The wood adapters are connected to the wall brackets using rivets, screws or bolts. When doing this, sliding points take up the horizontal (wind) loads and fixed points take up horizontal and vertical loads (dead load). Constraint-free assembly takes place at the sliding points in vertical longitudinal holes. One fixed point is arranged for each vertical wooden length.

The wall brackets may optionally be fitted with an installation aide, which makes fixing and holding the wood adapter possible, to simplify work.

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

Protrusions up to 480 mm.
