When using systems with a limited compensation or strictly fixed systems, the consequences may vary: in the best case it will be façade surface curving, in the worst - breakup of connections and collapse of the facade.
An unlimited compensation of thermal and mechanical deformations function has been realized in ALUTECH ALT150 system. The deformations are compensated due to a special connector of AYRC.150.0101 guiding profile and bracket.
The advantage of systems with unlimited compensation of deformations is evident: there is no need to control complex physical processes, the system performs it autonomously. One shall also take into account deformation of the building.
The problem of buildings deformation becomes the more relevant the more the height increases. In such conditions only the system with unlimited deformation compensation can keep the façade’s appearance unchanged.
The Alutech Group experts have designed the special system to minimize the influence of “cold bridges” caused by brackets on the thermal insulation properties of the wall. The quality of insulation falls with the increasing number of brackets. AYPC.150.0101 guiding profile has sufficient rigidity to minimize their number. In addition a thermal insulation sealant is used between the wall and the bracket. It is made of plastic with low heat conduction coefficient. The sealant can be used only as support’s corrosion insulation, when the system is used without thermal insulation.
The system uses two types of sealants:
plastic (AYPC.150.0901, AYPC.150.0902), heat insulating in the system with an insulant;
paronite (AYPC.150.0903, AYPC.150.0904), used for corrosion insulation of the support from the wall in a system without thermal insulant (according to fire safety requirements).
Broad range of adjustment
Application of ALUTECH ALT150 system allows concealing wall irregularities up to 250 mm, the adjustment range for one support is 50 mm. The substructure allows leveling vertical deviation of walls up to 10° without mechanical treatment of components. The broad range of adjustment and its simplicity increase the rate of installation.
One of our system's know-how is the application of an additional support on weak sub-bases. The additional support increases the bearing capacity of the main supports by 70%. In other cases it will be necessary to increase the number of supports, and that could deteriorate thermotechnical uniformity and significantly raise the costs.
The cleats in ALUTECH ALT150 system are made of austenitic stainless steel 1.2 mm thick. This type of steel has successfully passed all corrosion tests for ventilated cladding systems, which guarantees the system operation throughout the entire service life of the facade. To ensure the required strength, especially at the heights above 20 m, the cleats are manufactured of 1.2 mm thick steel.
ALUTECH ALT150 cleats structure has been designed in such a way that the steel was not damaged during press forming and there were no stress raisers.
All components are made of aluminum and stainless steel. Anodic treatment of aluminum components makes it possible to use the system in a corrosive environment. Anticorrosion properties of aluminum substructure significantly surpass properties of galvanized steel. At the same time the anticorrosion properties of aluminum do not suffer during the treatment and installation.
Variety of facing materials
Universal guiding profile enables various types of facing material fixation. This provides a wide choice of facing materials.
Easiness of assembly, low labor intensity
All components of the substructure are supplied ready-to-use, which eliminates the necessity to do marking and drilling. The system structure prevents installation errors, thus increasing its reliability and durability. Rivet joints used in the system are one of the most sound and easy-to-use.
Easy repairs and replacement of components
During the replacement of the facing and separate components the structure’s integrity remains intact. The system components are reusable.
ALUTECH ALT150 system is versatile and can be used for various types of faceworks. The versatility made it possible to reduce the number of components in the system and depart from keeping a stock of different systems.
One of ALUTECH ALT150 system’s advantages is own production and consistent quality control at all stages: from the aluminum alloy to the packing of finished product. We obtain guaranteed required properties of materials and components. The customer may be sure the system he chose and installed corresponds to the one that passed all the tests and received positive evaluation. Consistent quality control ensures reliability of ALUTECH ALT150 system.
