Application

eClips VL can be used for concrete stair cores and flat surface areas. It particularly lends itself to portrait panels.

Description

The eClips rainscreen support system provides the perfect foundation for rainscreen façades, and makes buildings more thermally efficient. By increasing the distance between brackets and combining patented insulation-fix technology with removable helping-hand clips, we reduce the number of penetrations in the structure, ensure the tightness of insulation sheets and keep air leakage to a minimum.


System flexibility

The eClips rainscreen support system allows a range of products to be fixed to the building envelope, and opens up endless creative possibilities for architects and contractors.


Thermally efficient stainless-steel brackets

Positioning fewer, higher thermal specification and better load-bearing brackets at significantly larger centres reduces overall costs and cuts installation time, as well as reducing the thermal conductivity of the sub-frame.


Sustainable helping-hand clip

The design of the brackets allows the smallest possible footprint when installing the insulation thanks to the sustainable helping-hand clip, allowing fitters to ensure there are no air pockets (critical for thermal efficiency and fire protection).


Patented insulation-fix technology

eClips insulation clips improve U-values and weather-sealing performance by reducing the number of penetrations into the fixing grounds – vertical insulation clips connect to the T/L rail mullion to securely hold the insulation.
