Advantages of the AluTP subsctructre for back-ventilated façades

Fitting of the ATPFix bracket
It is possible to align the profiles accurately using the punched clamping spring. The ATPFix can compensate unevenness of up to 4 cm. The clamping springs hold the profile in place until it is fixed permanently in its final position with self-tapping screws.

Screwing the ATPFix bracket element with the profiles into the round holes creates a fixed point which non-positively dissipated the weight loads of the cladding into the masonry.

Movement due to thermal longitudinal expansion of the profiles is possible if the self-tapping screws are fixed in the slots. The wind pressure and wind suction loads are also transferred non-positively into the masonry.

Extra care must be taken during installation to ensure that the profiles are only used storey high. Only one fixed point should be provided per profile – otherwise sliding points must be created.
