Aluminium Profiles

Top Hats

Vertical application
Horizontal application
Fast installation

Generally used between the Helping Hand brackets and steel studs, when the rainscreen system supports doesn’t match the main structure. 

The tophats are designed to support heavy weights with a low profile to reduce the impact on the insulation.

The fixed point holder tophat has increased flanges for fixings to be placed so that the fixings can be placed vertically ensuring the fixings are positioned into the centre of the SFS stud.

The depth of the tophat is designed to ensure the bracket fixing does not penetrate the SFS sheathing board.
