Rooftrak IFP-BC integrated fixing point system for handrail and balustrade applications on cold roof constructions. The IFP-BC can be used in both horizontal (flat roof) and vertical (parapet wall) constructions.

Features and benefits:

  • Bolted direct to the substrate.
  • Provides a connection point for balustrade supports.
  • Comprised of a 225 x 375 mm fixing plate with two anchor points each with 2 no. M10 x 20 blind threaded connection points. The fixing plate has 8 no. holes through which the plate is bolted to the structure.
  • To weather the fixing plate the IFP-BC is factory fitted with an appropriate flange material to enable it to be weathered or sealed to the main roof area.
  • A mounting or weld plate can be supplied in 10 mm-thick mild steel or stainless steel for connecting the balustrade to the IFP-BC.

  • Size: Head diameter: 25 mm; shank (diameter x length): 14 x 20 mm; internal thread: M10.
  • Typical uses: for using M10 studding to secure the IFP to the building structure by means of bolts or toggles.

Toggle fixing, IFP-TG.

For use in conjunction with the IFP-CN cap nut and M10 studding to secure the IFP products to the building structure. Suitable where the underside of the roof deck is not accessible or where the roof deck does not provide adequate pullout values using screw type fixings.

  • Material: Bright zinc plated (BZP) steel.
  • Size: 68 x 17.5 x 15 mm.
  • Typical uses: to obtain improved pullout values for situation such as fixing to composite panels and balustrade applications.
