The most common fixing system for rainscreen applications uses a special development from the Fischer Fixings specialist, Germany who have made a particular undercut anchor.
Façade panels for this system will be prefabricated in the factory in Germany including cut-to-size as well as drilling and placing of the undercut anchor. As a result large format facades (up to 3500 mm x 1500 mm depending on structural calculations) with minimally visible fixings, 10 mm open jointing can be installed using aluminum profiles supporting back to the structural floors and walls; where panel weight becomes critical then steel angles at the bottom edge can be used to alleviate the turning motion on the anchors. Magna Glaskeramik offers you wide reaching project services, which includes advice on detailed design and structural calculation support. The whole resulting rainscreen system with the Fischer FZPGZ anchor has both material guarantees and also official European Technical Approval certification ETA 16/0302.
