Easy and Low Cost Installation.
The 40mm-thick, 7 walls design 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 (continuous glazing), thus eliminating heat loss due to the thermal bridges caused by these structures (discontinuous glazing).
For installations exceeding 2.2m, a suitable section-breaker profile must be installed to which the arcoPlus® panels can then be fixed. This is done using the specific brackets to give the system the necessary resistance to negative wind load and permit sliding due to thermal expansion (see load resistance graph).
Examples of Panel Length
In addition to a complete range of aluminum profiles (also available as thermally insulated) for installing the panels, the system also includes opening windows (manually operated or motorized) to ventilate the building (see opening systems on page 70).
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.
