Prefab. Concrete Panel Support System
FIX-PA Facade panel support system is specially designed for the secure and fast installation of prepafricated concrete panels on to load bearing structures. This system consists of support and restraining elements.
The FIX-PA panel brackets consist of upper section, center section and special fitting which is cast in to the concrete panel. Depending on the design resistence loads and the fixing type to the structure, there are different types of an upper section. The standard upper section is fastened at the edge of the sub structure.
The standard FIX-PA brackets can support loads of up to 35 kN. However, custom made design can be made to achieve loads of up to 70 kN. the FIX-PA are tested and verified by calculations and further inspections carried out by third party approval inspection bodies.
Facade panels are restrained by using FIX-BR spacing bolts which is compatible with the FIX-PA anchors. The standard cavity sizes are 240 mm and are supplied with ISO plastic spacers.
To complete the facade panel support system, HAZ offers the design and manufacture of FIX-BRA parapet brackets. These brackets are used for the safe and easy support of parapet prefabricated components on to the supporting subframe.
Prefabricated concrete parapet panels are attached to the load bearing subframe with FIX-BRA parapet brackets, which are specially designed for the secure support of these high load structures. To achieve even load distribution, two parapet brackets are used to install each panel. These brackets are partially casted in to the compotent where there is reinforcement with rebars to achieve higher load capacity. The parapet brackets are attached to the subframe either with anchor channels or anchor bolts.
