The fixation systems

The structures – designed by Imola Tecnica with specific attention for detail – are secured to their support so that the only loads acting on them are the system own weight and the wind.
The cladding structure support can be ensured via either visible clips (in the same colour as the sheeting) or a hidden fixing system for optimised aesthetic results.



Visible fastening system

‘The visible’ system provides support for the ceramic porcelain slabs and the plugs that can be coloured according to the colour scheme of the tiles.

IT-S Structure


with concealed fastening system

Structure an IMOLA TECNICA IT-S metal structure dimensioned to withstand the static and dynamic load stresses in accordance with the regulations, composed of:


  • Anchoring expansion bolts suitable for the substrate;
  • Anchoring brackets made of 6060 L-section aluminium, 3 mm thick, complete with pre-fixing retaining spring;
  • Normalized aluminium rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws for securing the uprights to the brackets;
  • Uprights made of 6060 L-section and T-section aluminium, 2 mm thick (with the option of black anodization);
  • Normalized aluminium rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws for securing the stringers to the uprights;
  • Stringers made of 6060 C-section aluminium, 3 mm thick (with the option of black anodization);
  • Stainless steel expansion bolt for securing the cramps to the cladding slab;
  • Anchoring cramps, both simple and precisely adjustable, with clamping screw and adjustment screw;
  • Neoprene gasket to be applied between the anchoring cramp and cladding slab;



The brackets shall be secured to the supporting wall with mechanical or chemical anchors of suitable size to create a static structure to which the uprights can be secured at “fixed points” and “sliding points” with rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws; slotted stringers shall be secured to these uprights with rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws, as in the working drawings drafted by a chartered engineer, leaving freedom of movement in the longitudinal direction to allow for thermal expansion.

The cramps shall be secured to the slabs, separately from the neoprene gasket, with a mechanical coupling, without applying any kind of adhesive; the mechanical coupling shall be by means of special tapered holes (blind holes) on the back of the cladding slab, designed to accommodate a special anchoring expansion bolt.

Assembled in this way, the slabs shall be anchored to the stringers by precisely adjustable screws to obtain gaps that can be varied both horizontally and vertically.

The brackets shall be secured to the supporting wall with mechanical or chemical anchors of suitable size to create a static structure to which the uprights can be secured at “fixed points” and “sliding points” with rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws; slotted stringers shall be secured to these uprights with rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws, as in the working drawings drafted by a chartered engineer, leaving freedom of movement in the longitudinal direction to allow for thermal expansion.

The cramps shall be secured to the slabs, separately from the neoprene gasket, with a mechanical coupling, without applying any kind of adhesive; the mechanical coupling shall be by means of special tapered holes (blind holes) on the back of the cladding slab, designed to accommodate a special anchoring expansion bolt with a stainless steel washer 1,5 mm thick between it and the tile.

Assembled in this way, the slabs shall be anchored to the uprights with stainless steel rivets, special spacer plates secured to the uprights with black steel self-perforating screws ensure 8 mm gaps.








IT-XL Structure

  • Profile made of 6060 aluminium for securing the cramps to the cladding slab;
  • Anchoring cramps, both simple and precisely adjustable, with clamping screw and adjustment screw;



The brackets shall be secured to the supporting wall with mechanical or chemical anchors of suitable size to create a static structure to which the uprights can be secured at “fixed points” and “sliding points” with rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws; slotted stringers shall be secured to these uprights with rivets or stainless steel self-perforating screws, as in the working drawings drafted by a chartered engineer, leaving freedom of movement in the longitudinal direction to allow for thermal expansion.

The profiles shall have a special groove so that the cramps can be secured with a mechanical coupling, and shall be secured to the slabs with a special structural adhesive applied in a controlled environment.

Assembled in this way, the slabs shall be anchored to the stringers by precisely adjustable screws to obtain gaps that can be varied both horizontally and vertically.
