The PREMIUM profile enables great speed in the assembly since it has few elements and is always installed with self-drilling screws, guaranteeing a perfectly stable and durable joint, absorbing the loads of the cladding itself and the wind with all the established safety coefficients.
The PF-AL-T and PF-AL-L profiles are used for fastening on vertical joints and to ends of the cladding panel respectively; however, the PF-AL-J profile is used on the ends, whether corners or jamb ends, with no need to duplicate profiles. This type of profile is calculated for articulated joints where the gravitational and wind loads are shared between the bearing cladding structure and the building structure.
The PF-AL-TT profiles are also used for fastening on vertical joints. The PF-AL-JT profile is used at the panel ends, corners or jamb ends, with no need to duplicate profiles. This type of profile is calculated to support gravitational and wind loads, from slab to slab, using embedded fastening elements.
The PF-AL-T35 profiles are also used for fastening on vertical joints. The PF-AL-J35 profile is used at the panel ends, corners or jamb ends, with no need to duplicate profiles. These profile types are designed and calculated for façades where the use of thermal insulation and a reduced chamber is not needed, evidently also calculated to support the gravitational and wind loads.
The joint with the cladding is direct, and correct flatness is required. In any case its plumb and leveling can be adjusted by extremely precise thickness planing.
With the increase of the KNAUF type WM.es lightweight cladding structures, to which good vertical and horizontal flatness is assumed, new calculation tables have been studied to be able to install the HPL clip profiles directly to the cladding structure and in parallel to its own vertical structure (EXP. ITEC. QP-IT-4158-01.A).
All these systems are calculated to multiple claddings to be fastened with light industrialized materials such as flat ceramic, sintered ceramic, terracotta, fiber cement, composites, HPL and others.
These profiles can be used as a base for directly riveting the cladding or for fastening it in combination with single standing anchors and structural adhesive.
