Maxi Frame System

 



MAXI FRAME IS A SYSTEM BASED ON THE FOLLOWING GENERIC LAYERS OF OUTER COVERING:


  • Building wall in reinforced concrete or brick;

  • Insulation with water-repellent layer;

  • Adjustable anchoring brackets fixed to the wall with plugs or Halfen connectors;

  • Vertically adjusted hooks;

  • Load-bearing perimeter frame for load transfer;

  • Structural joint;

  • Safety mesh (optional);

  • Maximum slab;

  • Perimeter seal barrier, where appropriate;

  • Mechanical retainer if required (recommended).





MAXI FRAME SYSTEM LAYING SEQUENCE



INDICATIVELY, MAXI FRAME IS USED MAINLY FOR LARGE-SIZED PROJECTS, WITH SYSTEMATIC MODULE REPETITION AND IMPORTANT BUILDING HEIGHTS.
A typical installation sequence can be described as follows:



  • Fitting the mechanical anchorages to the wall (brackets and plugs or Halfen connectors)

  • Sealing and tightening the brackets

  • Laying the insulating layer, if required

  • Fitting hooks into the cells

  • Raising the cells

  • Mechanically anchoring the cells to the brackets using the hooks

  • Finely adjusting each cell in the two main directions

  • Repeating the previous three steps for the next cell

  • Closing the ventilation gaps with grilles

  • Fitting the terminal elements and window intrados




MAXI FRAME SITE LOGISTICS


The site logistics include storage for the façade component containers, with suitable surrounding space to allow the moving and extraction of each one, depending on the machinery used for access to the wall to be covered, handling and laying of the façade components; as an example, the following families are indicated:

Access for staff working at a height:
- Fixed scaffolding
- Mobile scaffolding
- Pantograph
- Truck with boom and basket

Handling and laying:
- Crane
- Fork lift
- Mobile crane
- Monorail

Cell hooking:
- Suction cups
- Cables and eye bolts




MAXI FRAME COVERING SYSTEM SIZE RANGE AND USE



NOTE: The size range is purely indicative, as external coverings can be produced using slabs of all sizes (up to 300x150 cm).

The key refers to the height above ground of the building.

XPS: Extruded polystyrene

EPS: Sintered expanded polystyrene
