With ResiTHERM® 16, CELO says it has developed a new innovative distance mounting system for ETICS insulated façades, which is the first product of its kind on the market to achieve an European Technical Assessment (ETA – 22/0229).
With the ResiTHERM® 16, heavy loads such as canopies, awnings, French balconies, air conditioning units or satellite dishes can be safely and reliably attached to external insulation – without thermal bridge. CELO Befestigungssysteme GmbH explains the fixing’s thermal separation module ensures effective thermal separation, as well as a high-quality polyamide with high glass-fibre content providing the necessary stability.
The preassembled sealing ring made of high-quality, weather resistant EPDM also provides a tested seal against driving rain; with the usual grain size of the plaster, up to a deflection of 3mm. There is also a simple installation process – the anchor rod with the glass-fibre-reinforced thermal separation module pulls itself, self-cutting through the plaster into the insulation material. At the same time, this ensures a perfect setting process with the chemical mortar compound and, last but not least, cleanly seals the drill hole through the EPDM seal. The result is a clean look with a relatively small diameter of the cover plate.
The ResiTHERM 16 can be used in insulated façades made of concrete, solid and perforated masonry, as well as aerated concrete. It covers insulation thicknesses of up to 300mm in concrete or 250mm in perforated masonry. For smaller insulation thicknesses, the M16 anchor rod is cut to length accordingly. It is used together with the ResiFIX injection system from CELO. The connection thread is an M12 thread, however, an M12/M10 reducing set screw or a common stainless steel screw can also be used.
As well as this, CELO also has another product in this product family – the ResiTHERM® 37, which is an optimal product solution for ETICS insulated perforated bricks and is characterised by superior load values, especially tensile loads in perforated bricks.www.celofixings.com
