A secure hold for every façade
The word façade refers to the visible shell or external envelope of a building. Modern façades must meet the requirements of building physics because they not only protect against atmospheric influences, but also contribute to the thermal insulation of the building. Moreover, as part of the building's structural system they also have a static role in terms of absorbing wind and vertical loads. In addition, the façade gives a building its 'face'. With that in mind, it must also satisfy aesthetic requirements. Different materials are available to choose from for the design of the façade, such as glass, concrete, natural stone or brickwork. Special fastenings have been developed for each of these 'external envelopes'. The members of the ECS provide safe and proven systems for this purpose.
