Rivet, or face fix system are designed using vertical rails in a T & L geometry.
Where the board are joined together, the 110 mm faced T rail, provides the correct dimensions to all the major board manufacturers specification, relating to surface area in contact with the panel, and movement joint between the abutting panels. Depending on the material type, HPL / fibre cement panels require vertical support at 500mm to 600mm - for all vertical centre support generally use the L rail 51x61mm section.
Bracket and rail systems from Fischer are interchangeable based on the project requirement. 'Helping Hand' brackets from FischerBWM ZeLa are the example in the image,with improved thermal performance to concrete. To achieve the most cost-effective bracket selection from the range use systemEVT brackets.
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.
