PF-ALU / PF-AL-tube

Description

The versatility of this profile more than surpasses any other in the market, since it allows speedy assembly by doing away with the double angle brackets, which are substituted by just one larger sized bracket that is anchored to the profile with four or six self-tapping screws. This guarantees a perfect long-life joint being able to support typical cladding loads and also wind loads within all the established safety coefficients. Due to its U shape, the thermal insulation layer can be positioned along its whole length, thus minimizing thermal bridging.
 
This very wide range of models allows choosing the most appropriate dimensions in keeping with the project requirements, guaranteeing perfect stability even at a distance of more than 6 meters.


Features

Connection between vertical profiles
 
All vertical profiles have splicing elements for all the sizes manufactured. Said splicing has been designed with the idea of allowing differential movement of the spliced profiles guaranteeing free x action effects of heat expansion to which the system may be subject.
 
The connection between the splicing and the vertical profile is carried out by means of two sets of self-tapping screws that connect the profiles with the splices. One of the sets is fixed on the oval splice holes, thus allowing a free vertical movement of the profiles themselves (see figure D1)
 
Support elements
 
The PF-ALU and PF-AL-Tube profiles are accompanied by a very wide range of support items called ES-ALU. The combination of these facilitates resolving the various cladding outward distances, and also to resolve any structure out-of-plumb problem that may arise. The ES-ALU are manufactured in various sizes, (from 45 up to 208mm), in their Articulated, Built-in and Wind versions (in keeping with their application).
 
Cladding adjustment plate
 
If required, Sistema Masa has adjusting wedges available for correction of any level deviation without it being necessary to remove any of the supporting elements in the vertical profiles.

PF-ALT/L/J

Description

Vertical profiles designed to fasten cladding panels with reduced thickness and/or density, such as gres porcelain, fiber cement, agglomerates, composites, glass, high pressure laminates (HPL), etc.  These profiles can be used as the basis for directly riveting the cladding or for combining them with the Sistema Masa GR-SV and GR-SO support anchors.
 
For the fastening of the claddings by means of direct riveting to the profile, Sistema Masa has a version of mountings with microgrooves in order to ensure optimum operation of the system. 
 
The PF-AL-T and PF-AL-L profiles are used for fastening at vertical joints and to ends, respectively. The PF-AL-J profile is used for the jam ends without the need to duplicate the profiles.
 
The PF-AL-T and PF-AL-L profiles are supplemented with a wide range of support elements, called ES-ALU. The combination of both allows resolving any jutting out of the cladding as well as to resolve any out-of-plumb of the structure. The ES-ALU are manufactured in various sizes (from 45 up to 208 mm), the Articulated and Wind versions being the ones used for smaller thickness or low density claddings.
