The system consists of aluminium upright profiles fixed to the external wall of the building using adjustable brackets. Between the upright profiles and the external wall, there is an insulating panel that can reach 140 mm thickness. Horizontal running sections made of aluminium are then fixed to the upright profiles, and these horizontal sections are the anchorage device to the external covering in Atlas Concorde porcelain stoneware. With this system, the external porcelain stoneware facade can be installed at a maximum distance of 240 mm from the external wall of the building (but always a minimum of 100 mm from the insulating panel).
For ventilated facades with decorative profi les, the Atlas Concorde porcelain stoneware is anchored to the structure using devices that have an aluminium 16 mm decorative border which takes the gap between each slab to 24 mm. During the assembly stage, the slabs are mechanically fixed to the joint via a flap on the horizontal running section and a channel along the entire length of the slab and then a layer of adhesive is applied between the slab and the horizontal section itself. This ensures a greater stability of the system compared to single fixing methods (be they mechanical or using adhesives).
