Azure Deep Soffit System

The ACS Azure Deep Soffit System comprises of specially designed adjustable hanging straps and GPR structural sections onto which OSB or Marine Ply Boards can be fixed to create a suspended soffit. Brick slip cladding panels can then be quickly and easily fixed into the suspended timber boards to create large brick clad soffit reveals.

The soffit system is designed in line with the Eurocode design principles and takes into account the combined effects of dead loads and wind pressures that would be imposed during the systems life in service.

Each system is designed by ACS to suit site specific/ project requirements.

Technical Data

Adjustment

A 14mm diameter hole must be drilled no closer than 50mm from the top edge of the GPR angle. The angle can then be fixed to the hangers using a M12 set screw and the ACS Alpha adjustment system which allows +/- 26.5mm of vertical tolerance to be accommodated. The Alpha system combines a toothed washer and a slot with corresponding holes into which the washer teeth are designed to engage, setting the system in place at the required level.

Design & Detailing

Unless instructed otherwise a typical quick scheme windload of 1.2kN/m2 (unfactored) is used to evaluate the effect of uplift and suction on the system. The densities of the soffit components parts are used to calculate the dead loads which are then factored and then added to the factored windloads to establish the design actions. The actions are then compared to the design resistance of the various system components to ensure that all components in the system are capable of supporting and restraining the imposed loads during their life in service.

Fixings

Soffit hangers are typically desinged to suit a specific project detail and will always include the Alpha adjustment system to provide vertical tolerance. Fixings will be designed to suit the specific application and substrate into which they will be installed.

Stainless Steel Set Screws will be supplied to fix the GRP angle into the hangers.

The countersunk self drilling and tapping screws have been designed by ACS and tested by Lucideon Structural  Testing Laboratories with the GRP structural rail section to have an allowable tensile design resistance of 1.00kN.
