Bravo-W Support System

Vertical application
Aluminium
Concealed fix
Sound Insulation

Bravo-W is the optimal solution for large and flat facades ensuring fast and secure installation of cassettes from aluminium composite materials and metal sheets.

The system is built-up with a Y shaped profile that runs vertically at panel joint locations supported by EVT L-Brackets. The system then has a W shaped hanger profile that has a bar attached to allow cassette panels to be hooked on the system. 

The Y and W profiles allow for the movement of the facade material, due to the various thermal expansions without compromising the secure attachment of the cassettes.

Designed for metal or composite cladding sheets, shaped into cassettes using a hook attachment method. The design of the main vertical profile gives the possibility for different shadow gaps.

The hangers are designed to click into the main profile for additional fine adjustment, secured in place with a fixing screw.

The quantity of hangers per panel depends on panel dimensions, which will be specified by the panel manufacturer.

    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 RJ Facades technical department. To submit your project specifics please go to Facade Designer.

    The system benefits from using a standard helping hand system, which is interchangeable with other RJ Facades helping hand systems based on the project requirements. 

    RJ Facades offer one of the UK's largest range of Helping Hand brackets which have been designed to help achieve the the required U-Value while helping to support the facade system going back to the backing wall.

    Project thermal calculations to confirm insulation thickness available on a project by project basis.

    RJ Facades design issued by the our RJ Facades technical department can be covered by Product and design insurance if required.
