Alpha Wall Brackets
All of our Alpha brackets are extruded with 6063-T6, copper-free and “marine-grade” aluminum. The aluminum is a silvery white, nonmagnetic, ductile metal. Aluminum is the #1 most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust, chief ore is bauxite and the third most abundant element. The material has a density of 2.7kg/m3, is lightweight and stronger than steel. The malleable qualities of aluminum makes it perfect to extrude. Aluminum can go places and create shapes that steel cannot, often forming deeper or more intricate shapes. For rainscreen applications, the non corrosive nature of aluminum makes it a perfect material to use. Since aluminum is more elastic than steel, it is especially ideal for creating precise parts for deep and straight walls and is efficient to fabricate with most punching and extrusion machines. Aluminum is the preferred material of curtainwalls and will become the same for sub-framing systems in North America.
Vertical Solution - Alpha V Bracket
Alpha brackets are designed to simplify the process of building rainscreen walls of all types including C.I. Sub-framing and Panel Sub-framing.
Our Vertical Alpha V brackets are available in twelve sizes to create various cavity depths. The number of fasteners back into the sub-structure will be optimized based on load requirements and back-up wall type.
Alpha V+ brackets allow more fastener points and can be used in combination with standard Alpha V brackets to address the cladding material’s deadload.
Horizontal Solution - Alpha H Bracket
Alpha brackets are the building blocks designed to simplify the process of building rainscreen walls of all types including C.I. Sub-framing and Panel Sub-framing.
Our horizontal Alpha H brackets come in eight sizes to create various system cavity depths. Based on various load requirements, the number of fasteners back into the substructure will be optimized based on load requirements and back-up wall type.
Alpha H+ brackets allow more fastener points and can be used in combination with standard Alpha H brackets to address the cladding material’s deadload, specifically for concrete block construction.
In addition to our fully-engineered solutions for C.I. Sub-framing and Panel Sub-framing, ECO Cladding maintains significant reserves of all of our stock profile rails, available for applications where individual components are necessary. Cut profile lengths that can be project-specific and custom solutions are also available.
It is our goal to provide installers with all of the items needed to get your project properly installed. In addition to profile rails, ECO Cladding can provide the fixing tools, joint profiles, fasteners, rivets, centering tools, drill bits, vent profiles and installation tools necessary for a successful installation.
