Facade fixing

fischer Facade Systems offers a complete high-quality and innovative system for fixing of ventilated facades for architectures and planners. Besides better workability and economical advantages, the innovative system entails an especially outstanding architectural creative scope:

fischer Facade Systems accommodates the usage of facade boards made of ashlar from 20 mm thickness to ESG and TVG glass plates starting from 6 mm thickness. 
Furthermore, the system allows for complete versatility in the positioning of the anchor fixings on the back of the board enabling the exchange of just a single or all boards with extreme ease. This also enables the fixing of reveal panels with high flexibility and ease. 

Aesthetic Highlight: 

The undercut technology in connection with the fischer Zykon-Panel Anchor FZP-II ensures that there are no visible fixing elements at the joints.

fischer Facade Systems extends options and reduces costs

The fischer Facade Systems opens up the way for an effortless and cost-efficient design of attractive, complex façades. The reason lies in the system itself - FZP II, the fischer zykon panel anchor, an undercut anchor enabling a stress-free fixing system that is installed into pre-drilled undercut hole. 

This technology offers several times higher ultimate loads than conventional fixings. Also, as the anchor positioning can be optimised, we can see over 50% reduced bending moment within the panels as compared to traditional systems. Allowing for reduced panel thickness and larger panel sizes. In addition, the application of varied panel thicknesses can also be compensated by the use of stand-off anchor types.

The innovative facade system technology perfectly combines the use of panel anchors, individual substructures and sophisticated drilling technology. This pays off on the construction site where the installation is fast, simple and independent of weather conditions, drastically reducing construction time and costs.

The three ACT systems at a glance

System one

SystemOne, fischer’s framework substructure is an integral part of fischer Facade Systems technology. It is designed for high loads, for large-size, heavy natural stone panels, and for bridging non-bearing structural elements. SystemOne reduces on-site installation times and noise through versatility and ease of replacing panels, for example; during renovation, etc.

Cost-effective and standards-compliant: fischer reveal angle bracket for mechanical fixing of reveal panels on the SystemOne substructure.

System one light

SystemOne light is an efficient solution when it comes to installing ventilated cladding made of lightweight facade panels. As you would expect, this rail-based system also offers all the advantages that make SystemOne unique:

  • fast installation thanks to hook and hang system
  • no anchoring point visible within joint
  • designed for high loads
  • bridging of non-bearing structural elements
  • perfect for over-cladding of steel-frame constructions
  • mechanical fixing for reveal panels
  • non-destructive replacement of façade panels

Wall bracket system:

  • Minimised cold bridges
  • Reduced drilling costs
  • Noise reduction during renovation works
  • Dry installation, even at extreme temperatures

Glass point fixing with undercut

fischer Facade Systems' drilling technique, same as our undercut anchor and substructure, is state of the art technology. The appliances for drilling undercut holes are essential parts of the overall system, which consists of drilled hole and anchor.

For drilling, fischer offers in-house developed machines in various sizes ranging from portable machines for onsite use through to large-scale, serial production facilities. These machines allow fast and cost-effective drilling of holes thanks to diamond tipped drilling tools. Setting appliances are then used to fit the anchors into the panels. Fitting specialists at the fischer's Competence Centre offer a comprehensive range of services in connection with drilling and setting:

  • Large variety of machines
  • Large-scale machines for serial production
  • Support in the selection of the machine
  • Purchase/renting of machinery

The first state of the art glass point fixing in the world with an undercut...

The "Deutsche Institut für Bautechnik" [German Institute for Building Technology] (DIBt) in Berlin has issued a general approval for the fischer Zykon point fitting (FZP-G). The revolutionary development is state of the art and can now be used without consent in individual cases for sophisticated glass facades. By using undercut technology, our company has succeeded in creating the first point fitting for glass in the world in which the hole does not penetrate the glass.

The FZP-G-Z involves an undercut point fitting made from stainless steel. It consists of a cone bolt, expansion sleeve, plastic cap, shim washer and retaining nut. The smooth outside of the glass facade offers the architects a broader design field and at the same time reducing the cleaning requirements and susceptibility of soiling.

The fischer FZP-G-Z is offered in two variations for glazing with toughened safety glass (ESG or ESG-H) and laminated safety glass (VSG). The glass panes can be enamelled or coated and can also serve as substrates for solar elements that are laminated.
