Epsilon “T40” is a cutting-edge, high-performance vertical profile system that is easy to install.

The system Epsilon “T40” is a ventilated façade cladding system with reduced thickness ceramic panels and hidden or visible mechanical fixings. It is a cutting-edge, high-performance vertical profile system that is easy to install. It has been scrupulously designed to resist all types of mechanical stresses and corrosion problems that can arise in construction work.

As it is a profiling system, it can be installed on solid, perforated or hollow supporting walls. The system can be loaded immediately, and can be assembled regardless of the weather conditions.

The system has an European Technical Approval Document (ETA-13/0628) issued by the “Instituto de Ciencias de la Construcción Eduardo Torroja”.

Composition

Vertical aluminium profiles with 'T' section

These profiles are made of extruded AW-6060/6063 T5 aluminium alloy with a black marine coat, resistant to aggressive agents. This type of coat has the certification QUALICOAT class SEASIDE. Thanks to their special design, they provide excellent mechanical resistance and resistance against corrosion.

They are fixed to the floor slabs with angular load bearing anchors. The connection between the vertical profile and the load bearing/support anchors is made with stainless steel self-drilling screws 5.5×25. There are 2 lengthways areas on both sides of the profile section where the fastenings are introduced and fixed using stainless steel self-drilling screws 4,8×19.

Vertical profiles of aluminium with L section (Lateral Remate)

These profiles are also made of extruded AW-6060/6063 T5 aluminium alloy with a black marine coat, resistant to aggressive agents. This type of coat has the certification QUALICOAT class SEASIDE. Thanks to their special design, they provide excellent mechanical resistance and resistance against corrosion.

Vertical profiles Epsilon “L”, are installed on lateral ends (lateral corners) or installed as intermediate reinforcement profiles. They are fixed to the wall and to the fastenings in the same way that the “T” profile.

They are made of extruded aluminium AW-6060/6063 T5 alloy anodized 15 micron in natural matt silver.
These anchors attach the vertical profiles to the floor slabs of the building, distributing the load produced by the cladding. The angular load bearing anchors are attached to the floor slabs using A2 stainless steel M8 x 75 expansive anchors.

If the anchor cannot be attached to the floor slabs of the building, it is attached to the supporting wall. If it is made of semi-hollow brick or similar, the fixing kit used consists of a 8×90 bolt and a nylon plug SX 10×80. One angular load bearing anchor is used on each vertical profile. The load bearing anchors are attached to the profiles using two 5.5 x 25 mm self-drilling AISI-304 stainless steel screws. The connection between the angular load bearing anchors and the profiles can be adjusted horizontally thanks to the oval holes (18 mm). This means the system can be adapted to any possible irregularities in the structural elements of the building. The connection can be adjusted by a depth of 21.5 mm.

The following anchors are fabricated for the possible gap distances:
(60+40)x80x3 mm; (80+40)x80x4 mm; (100+40)x80x4,5 mm; (120+40)x80x4,5 mm; (140+40)x80x5 mm; (160+40)x80x5; (180+45)x80x6/5 y (200+65)x80x8/6.

Angular Load Bearing Anchors

They are made of extruded aluminium AW-6060/6063 T5 alloy anodized 15 micron in natural matt silver.
The anchors are installed at a certain distance from the angular load bearing floor slab anchors, and attached to the profiles using stainless steel self-drilling screws 5.5 x 25 mm.

The angular support anchors are attached to the brickwork using stainless steel 8×90 bolts and nylon plugs SX 10×80.
Such as with the load bearing anchors, the position of the profiles can be adjusted horizontally in the support anchors thanks to the oval holes (18 mm). They can also be adjusted by a depth of 21.5 mm in the same way. In the vertical axe, the profile thermal expansions are allowed thanks to the vertical oval holes (15.5 mm).

The following anchors are fabricated for the possible gap distances: (60+40)x46x3 mm; (80+40)x46x4 mm; (100+40)x46x4,5 mm; (120+40)x46x4,5 mm; (140+40)x46x5 mm; (160+40)x46x5; (180+45)x46x6/5 y (200+65)x46x8/6.

Epsilon T - Angular support anchors

El cladding is attached using Delta fastenings. Delta fastening is made of extruded aluminium AW-6060/6063 T5 alloy anodized 15 micron, natural matt silver or lacquered on request.

Delta fastenings hidden clips (S. 17) hold the cladding with the clips they have. It is necessary to groove the cladding on both sides of the panel where the clips will be introduced. The fastenings are placed on the lengthways areas of the vertical profile designed for this aim and are fixed using stainless Steel self-drilling screws 4,8×19. Additionally to the fastening, it is necessary to put adhesive polyurethane putty to strength the join between the cladding and the vertical profiles.

The fastening Delta, can also be used as visible clips (S. 22), in the same way that the hidden clips, but adding a sponge profile between the profile and the cladding.and the cladding.
