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.



Concealed fastening system

The concealed system involves a processing of the tiles that enables it to be fastened to the structure with elements not visible from the outside.

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.

Description of system

Fixing on existing support of L-section brackets by means of plugs suitably sized and adapted to the type of support. Fixing of T-section upright profile to the brackets by means of rivets, with “fixed point” and “sliding point” as per the executive design. Riveting on upright profiles of slotted horizontal stringer profiles, shaped in such a way that stresses due to the action of the wind will be axial to the cramps. Application on cladding slabs of anchoring cramps in aluminium by means of special expansion plug in STAINLESS steel (see KEIL). Laying of the slabs thus assembled on the slotted horizontal stringers. By means of millimetric adjustment screws the system offers the possibility of variable gaps.

Basic system parts list

Featuring concealed coupling of the cladding, the system consists of:

  • Uprights: T-section;
  • Brackets: L-section anchorage complete with prefixing
    spring;
  • Plugs: anchorage suitable for the support;
  • Rivets: normalised for fixing uprights to brackets;
  • Stringers: horizontal, slotted, in special section to
    accommodate by anti-flip-over interlock the cramps
    applied on the back of the cladding;
  • Rivets: normalised for fixing stringers to uprights;
  • Cramps: anchoring, millimetric adjustment with locking
    and adjustment screw;
  • Cramps: simple anchoring type;
  • Gaskets: in neoprene to apply between anchoring
    cramp and cladding slab;
  • Open joints: varies from a minimum of 3 mm.

Description of system

Fixing on existing support of L-section brackets by means of plugs suitably sized and adapted to the type of support. Fixing of T-section profiles to the brackets by means of rivets, with “fixed point” and “sliding point” as per the executive design. Fixing of special plate in pre-painted STAINLESS steel complete with clips in STAINLESS steel AISI 316 for fixing the cladding slabs. The clips may be of a colour similar to the cladding. The plate is complete with gaskets in EPDM with antivibration function for the cladding. The system thus composed has a gap between the cladding slabs of 8 mm.

Basic System Part List

Featuring exposed coupling of the cladding, the system consists of::

  • Uprights: T-section (black, anodised);
  • Brackets: L-section anchorage complete with prefixing holding spring;
  • Plugs: anchorage suitable for the support;
  • Rivets: normalised for fixing uprights to brackets;
  • Rivets: normalised for fixing plates to uprights;
  • Plate: in STAINLESS steel complete with coloured clips and gaskets;
  • Open joints: 7/8 mm.

Description of system

Fixing on existing support of L-section brackets by means of plugs suitably sized and adapted to the type of support. Fixing of special section profiles to the brackets by means of rivets, with “fixed point” and “sliding point” as per the
executive design. In the upright profile there are grooves for housing self-
positioning spacers and clips in STAINLESS steel AISI 316 for fixing the cladding slabs. For slabs in format 120×60 cm laid horizontally an intermediate upright is envisaged with related fixing clips. The clips may be of a colour similar to the cladding. The system is complete with gaskets in EPDM with anti- vibration function. The system thus composed may have a gap between the cladding slabs of 4 or 8 mm.

Basic System Part List

Featuring exposed coupling of the cladding, the system consists of:

  • Uprights: T-section (with possibility of black anodization);
  • Brackets: L-section anchorage complete with prefixing
    holding spring;
  • Brackets: anchorage suitable for the support;
  • Plugs: anchorage suitable for the support;
  • Rivets: normalised for fixing uprights to brackets;
  • Rivets: normalised for fixing clips to uprights;
  • Clips: coloured, in STAINLESS steel AISI 316;
  • Spacers: 4/8 mm;
  • Gaskets: anti-vibration;
