Framefix Compression Sleeve
The ACS Framefix system is supplied with compression sleeves which correspond to the thickness of the insulation specified. The sleeves are designed to ensure that the compressive strength and stability of the channel tie system is achieved and maintained by preventing the channel deflecting into and compressing the insulation during installation and whilst under normal load.
Compressing mineral wool significantly reduces its effectiveness and in turn negatively impacts upon its ‘U’ Value. In addition, when channel deflects into the insulation, the cavity depth is inconsistent and can increase in places, this means the channel ties specified may be installed below the recommended embedment depth due to the increase in the size of the cavity.
