The voestalpine Metsec side rail support and its end connection are designed to prevent rotation of the side rail under eccentric cladding loads.
w = weight of cladding
voestalpine Metsec diagonal tie wires provide significant benefits in terms of both drawing office detailing and site erection time.
They are delivered fully assembled to avoid the possibility of lost items on site. The assembly is protected by galvanising and is provided with adjustable ends for easy erection. To enable the length of diagonal tie wires to be determined, the depth between rails (B) and the distance between rail holes (A) must be given.
voestalpine Metsec will ensure the correct length is supplied.
It is important that the end bracket is always bolted to the cleat hole nearest the stanchion.
Radial slots in the end brackets accommodate angles between 25º and 65º.
Side rail supports are bolted between the lines of side rails in accordance with the recommendations shown.
Side rail supports are fully assembled from pre-galvanised material.
