BSP brackets for segmental facades are made of aluminium alloy EN AW 6060 T66 or EN AW 6063 T6. We offer two kinds of brackets, KE1 that are fixed on top of a slab and KE2 fixed to slabs face.
The most common way of fixing segmental brackets is fixing them from inside of a building. KE1 bracket which is fixed on top of a slab allows installers to stay in the building during installation. Easy and safe installation makes the whole proces much faster and therefore cheaper. This solution requires floor level to be raised.
If fixing the brackets from the top of the slab is impossible KE2 bracket is used and fixed to its face. This solution is a little bit harder as installation is performed from the inside of a building without scaffolding. For the maximum ease of use mounting rails should be embedded at the stage of pouring the floor slabs. These rails should be designed together with reinforcement and formwork.
All elements of BSP substructure system have B durability class in accordance with PN-EN 1999-1-1:2011 and may be used without any additional anti-corrosion treatment in environments of class C1, C2 and C3 according to PN-EN ISO 12944-2:2001. If additional protective layer is applied – anodizing – they can be used in environment of class C4. All elements of the system are also classified as A1 class in the scope of reaction to fire according to PN-EN 13501-1+A1:2010 based on the decision of the European Commission No. 96/603/EC, 2000/605/EC and 2003/424/WE.
BSP segmental brackets should be installed in accordance with the workshop design prepared by engineers and designers with sufficient knowledge in the field of construction and building. The layout of the structure and the spacing between the elements (strength and resistance of the entire system) should be confirmed by the static calculations prepared by the engineer with qualifications in the filed of construction and building.
