Most standard façade subframe systems are typically designed using vertical rails in a T & L geometry.
For intermediate supports, the 60x40 standard L-profile provides the correct dimensions for most façade types, relating to surface area in contact with the panel,
L-profiles can also be used at panel joint locations where the 40mm dimension is enough to support the panels.
for non-standard or custom L-profiles please contact RJ facades technical department.
Depending on the system type and application additional horizontal profiles might be added to T and L geometry, on order to fulfil the project requirements.
For scenarios where the façade has an expressed joint, L-profiles can be powder coated and anodised.
RJ Facades standard soffit designs up to 400mm using L and T profiles to support most soffit materials
