Maxi Light System

 



MAXI LIGHT IS USED FOR BUILDINGS WITH IRREGULAR WINDOWS AND OPENINGS AND A LARGE QUANTITY OF PROTRUSIONS AND BALCONIES:

Maxi Light 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;

  • Vertical uprights;

  • Horizontal beams;

  • Vertical load transfer profiles anchored to the cross beams;

  • Structural joint;

  • Safety mesh (optional);

  • Maximum slab;





MAXI LIGHT SYSTEM LAYING SEQUENCE


HAVING ESTABLISHED THE EXECUTIVE DESIGN OF THE FAÇADE, THE MAXI LIGHT SYSTEM, COMPARED TO THE MAXI FRAME, REQUIRES THE LAYING OF A GRID ON THE FAÇADE, AND WORK CAN BEGIN ON SITE TO MOUNT THIS WHILE THE ELEMENTS ARE BEING PREPARED AT THE FACTORY.
In most cases, the size of the Maxi Light panels allows the use of conventional scaffolding.
A typical installation sequence can be described as follows:



  • Fitting of mechanical anchorages on the wall to be covered (generally brackets and plugs)

  • Raising the materials

  • Sealing and tightening the brackets

  • Laying the insulating layer, if required

  • Laying the vertical uprights

  • Laying the horizontal beams

  • Mechanically anchoring the panels to the beams

  • Finely adjusting each cell in the two main directions

  • Closing the ventilation gaps with grilles

  • Fitting the terminal elements and window intrados




MAXI LIGHT SITE LOGISTICS


In most cases, the size of the Maxi Light panels allows the use of conventional scaffolding, and site logistics are therefore very similar to those for
assembling traditional ceramic ventilated façades; as an example the following families are indicated:

Access for staff working at a height:
- Fixed scaffolding
- Mobile scaffolding

Handling and laying:
- Site crane
- Mobile crane



MAXI LIGHT 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 180x150 cm).
The key refers to the height above ground of the building.
XPS: Extruded polystyrene
EPS: Sintered expanded polystyrene
