Easy and Low Cost Installation
The 20mm-thick, 4 walls structure with tongue and groove connection gives the panels remarkable flexural strength. It also allows the panels to be installed without the use of metal reinforcement frames, thus eliminating heat loss due to the thermal bridges caused by these structures.
The modular connection ensures a watertight seal for glazing with an inclination of up to 30°.
For installations exceeding 1.5m, a suitable section-breaker profile must be installed to which the arcoPlus® panels can then be fixed (see load resistance graph). This is donw using the specific brackets to give the system the necessary resistance to negative wind load and permit sliding due to thermal expansion.
Examples of Panel Length
The arcoPlus® system includes a complete range of aluminum profiles for installing the panels.
The air cells of the polycarbonate panels must be sealed using vented aluminum breather tape. This allows correct ventilation and prevents soiling on the inside.
