The Continuous Horizontal Runner (CHR) System is ideally suited to large format tiles. In this case each tile is continuously supported by the continuous aluminium horizontal runner profile along its length at top and bottom
The ‘T’ System is recommended for use with smaller tile lengths of upto 800 mm subject to the design windload of the project being within the recommended limits of the system. In this case, the horizontal clamps holding the tiles are positioned at the junction of four tiles along each supporting vertical profile.
Beam to Beam System
The ‘Beam to Beam’ System is suited for buildings where there is no brickwork/ masonry available to anchor the vertical profiles between beams. The system therefore incorporates special vertical profiles which are able to span from beam to beam without the need for any intermediate supports. The rest of the elements remain the same as the Horizontal Continuous Runner System or the T-System.
