BSP KRP system
BSP KRP frame system is used for fixing balcony partitions. This system consists of two aluminium profiles, BSP KRP1 and KRP2. Together they create a frame that latches onto the panel. All elements of BSP KRP system are made of extruded aluminium alloy EN AW 6060 T66 or EN AW 6063 T6.
BSP KRP1 and KRP2 profiles have very small dimensions and are used exclusively to fasten panels filling the partition. They are not load bearing elements of the partition. The load-bearing structure of the partition is an individually designed steel or aluminium frame, to which KRP profiles are attached with self-drilling screws. Gasket is placed between steel frame and aluminium profiles to mask the minimal distortion resulting from uneven expansion of two materials, making it invisible to the naked eye. Gaskets are also used to stiffen and hold panel in place between KRP profiles. Thickness of the gasket is selected based on panel thickness.
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 KRP system 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.
