FISCHER FIXINGS AJ ENQUIRY NO: 201
The ACT fixing system from Fischer Fixings is used to fix thin stone claddings in a rainscreen facade. The anchors provide unequalled load-bearing performance, between two and seven times higher than dowels.
Because the position of the anchors is optimised, the bending stresses in the stone are reduced by 50 per cent. The 'secret fixing' technique allows an open-jointed stone facade with excellent aesthetics. Email technical@fischer. co. uk or visit www. fischer. co. uk.
