EJOT has secured ETA (European Technical Assessment) approval for its Iso-Corner load-bearing bracket, an engineered fastening element that allows a secure fix to be achieved for medium to heavy weight building elements in ETICS and other external wall insulation applications.
The newly awarded ETA confirms the engineered value of EJOT Iso Corner, which is moulded from high density polyurethane foam and can be easily cut on site with an electric saw to sit flush with the external insulation face.
This combination of structural strength and adaptability provides a dependable supporting bracket option offering a cantilever arm to length of between 80mm and 300mm.
It is ideally suited to specifiers and installers who need to attach building elements to a façade that is to be treated with an ETICS – external thermal insulation composite systems – or other external wall insulation solution.
These could include elements such as railings and Juliet balconies, which require a secure attachment to the load-bearing external wall (substrate) – not the multi-layered external wall insulation system.
The EJOT Iso-Corner L-shape installation angle, which is available in three sizes and has two installation surfaces so the building element can be fixed to the face or reveal/soffit, is anchored in to the substrate of the building face.
The building element is then fixed to the Iso-Corner face with the EJOT Delta PT 100 screws, resulting in a perfectly coordinated fastening system. And being manufactured from polyurethane foam, the Iso-Corner also reduces the risk of thermal bridging.
It is part of a range of ETICS mounting elements from EJOT designed to achieve safe, secure and long-term fastening solutions, including:
– Iso-Spiral Anchor, a spiral-shaped plastic assembly anchor complete with sealing washer and integrated threaded sleeve which provides a fastening solution for lightweight elements in ETICS facades, such as house numbers and external lights.
– Iso-Dart – a fastening system comprising of a façade anchor with plastic installation bush, complete with sealing washer, which accepts common coarse threaded screws for securely attaching light to medium loads.
– Iso-Bloc – an easy-to-cut block moulded from high density EPS, which is particularly suitable as a backing to allow for thermal bridge-free attachments in ETICS applications.
As a global leading in construction fastening solutions, the EJOT UK team offers a wealth of technical support and specialist guidance to specifiers and installers, to ensure they achieve the right result when mounting to ETICS facades.
