There’s a huge range of fixing options for brise soleil and climate façades.
In a nutshell:
- The top façade companies provide standard drawings for the most common fixings
- Drawings include fixings for steel, brick, timber, concrete and curtain walling
- Maple provide DWG files as downloads from their website
- Façade specialists can also work with architects and specifies to create bespoke fixing drawings
They vary depending on whether you’re fixing to curtain walling, brick, timber, concrete or steel. And that’s before you consider a long list of other variables such as wind-load and thermal transfer.
What this means is that many architects and engineers use valuable time and resources designing fixings from scratch. Fortunately, the top façade companies in the industry can provide standard drawings for the most common fixings. At Maple, they’re available as DWG files from our website.
This library of resources is based on our years of experience in the façade industry. But that experience also tells us that many variables can affect the suitability of even the most standard components. So, it’s always best to check with Maple first.
We also recognise that the design possibilities for modern façades is endless. That’s why our specialists also work with architects and specifiers to create bespoke drawings and proposals for any project.
