Helping Hand Brackets

ZeLa Brackets

Vertical application
Thermal Performance
Stainless steel Available
Wide range materials

ZeLa Brackets are designed for energy saving and thermal bridges reduction using vertical rails in a T & L geometry.

With projection from 100 to 320mm ZeLa brackets are the best thermal performance bracket selection from the range. They have special designed pre-installed “clip” to hold main vertical profiles. The brackets base is suitable for concrete and blockwork. Fixed Point holder is set up just with an extra red coloured locking point. The range is also available in stainless steel for increased thermal performance.

Bracket and rail systems from Fischer are interchangeable based on the project requirement. To achieve cost engineered solution for different substrates, use FischerBWM ATK brackets.

FischerBWM offer Europe’s largest range of Helping Hand brackets which have been designed to help achieve the U-value. Bracket systems range from the ZeLa range, designed to achieve passive house levels of performance, to standard L brackets that suit most project requirements in the UK.

    Typical bracket configuration uses the Fixed Point bracket at the highest position on the vertical rail to support the façade vertical dead loads. The Sliding Point bracket is used typically on all other positions on the vertical rail to absorb the project wind loading. Bracket configuration is specified by FischerBWM engineering department. To submit your project specifics please go to Project Builder.
