QV1.1
Flat Panels Visible Fasteners Rainscreen System
Using QVB Wall Brackets

Description

The QV1.1 system is widely used to attach cladding panels using visible fasteners. In addition, the QV1.1 can serve as the vertical attachment basis for other cladding systems. It is most suitable for concrete and masonry wall substrates. It can be used on a stud wall where the rail location is independent of the joint layout.

The system consists of QVB wall brackets and vertical T and L profiles.

  • The vertical profiles are attached to the QVB wall brackets via a series of fixed and flexible connections.
  • The flexible connections absorb the wind loads and allow for thermal movement.
  • The fixed connections absorb both dead and wind loads.
  • The QVB brackets come with a thermal insulator to reduce the thermal bridging and prevent galvanic corrosion.

QV1.2
Flat Panels Visible Fasteners Rainscreen System
Using Horizontal Rails

Description

The QV1.2 system is an exposed attachment system designed for stud walls where horizontal support is required for vertical profiles.

The panels are attached to the vertical profiles using visible fasteners. QV1.2 uses one of the three rail configurations of horizontal and HAT & J vertical profiles:

  1. The vertical profiles are attached to the horizontal H rail, fixed to the studs via fasteners.
  2. The vertical profiles are attached to horizontal L clips, fixed to the continuous horizontal T profiles via fasteners. The horizontal T profiles are attached to the studs via fasteners.
  3. The vertical profiles are attached to the continuous horizontal L profile. The horizontal L profile is attached to horizontal QHB brackets, which are attached to the studs via fasteners.

The profiles are typically provided with slotted holes to absorb the thermal movement of the system.

The QHB brackets come with a thermal insulator to reduce the thermal bridging.
