Post-and-girder system Forte FA50-K40
FA50-K40 is a universal post-and-girder (stained-glass) system with 40 mm wide external clamping bars and 50 mm wide post-and-girder frame. The frame consists of vertical load-bearing posts with mechanically fastened horizontal girders.
Load-bearing frame of the post-and-girder system is placed on the inner side of the wall
Insulating glass units and other filling elements are installed on supports (with plastic gasket) and
fixed to the seals of the post-and-girder framework with clamping bars also using
rubber seals. Clamping bars, in turn, are fixed to supporting profiles
with 4.8 stainless steel self-tapping screws at intervals of no more than 150-300 mm. Screws
are covered with blanking covers from outside. The bars and covers can be painted in any colour. In this case
the facade system can be two-tone – indoor facade elements (posts and girders)
are painted in one colour, and outdoor elements (decorative covers) – in the other.
The system allows installing the following filling elements: single glazing, insulating glass units, composite and heat-insulating panels.
