Horizonal rail systems are typically fixed to vertical rails in a T & L geometry. The majority of facades can be designed using 2mm vertical sections, although there structurally required 3mm sections are specified. Use Fischer FZP Tergo fixings with Fibre Cement (Eternit), and PTS fixings with HPL (Trespa) for securing the panels to the hanger brackets.
The horizontal rail can be fixed to the vertical rail using tek screw or rivet connections. The horizontal rails are designed to span 500-600mm between the vertical support structure.
FischerBWM ATK103S, 2mm horizontal rail system is available in 20mm and 30mm deep sections, with hanger brackets available in 36mm, 60mm and 80mm widths. FischerBWM engineering will specify the hanger brackets depending on the façade panel size and weight. Hanger brackets are available with a variety of hole geometry to suit various methods for secret fixing to different brands of façade panel types, i.e. Eternit, Trespa, OKOskin & Rockpanel
FischerBWM facade systems are designed and manufactured to Eurocode 9. UK accreditation approvals through the new Winmark Approval, by Wintech and the BBA are confirmation of Eurocode design and manufacture processes.

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.
