What is the Male Female Rainscreen System (MFR)?
The Aludecor Male Female Rainscreen System (MFR), for assembling the composite panels on ventilated facades, comprises Male and Female 6063-T6 aluminium alloy profiles.
This System has two profiles over which the shaped trays are fixed.
It is a concealed fixing system that is versatile and can be assembled quickly. Furthermore it has been developed especially in order to construct ventilated facades for Aludecor’s composite panels with horizontal adjustment.
The substructure is made entirely of 6063 T6 aluminium profiles. It comprises fixings in double T shape of different lengths in order to absorb all irregularities of the façade.
In order to avoid vibrations in the panels, the Male and Female profiles have the neoprene protection gasket.
The spacer is fixed to the vertical parameter using special mechanical wedges that are recommended in each case by the fixture suppliers. These double T spacers receive the omega-shaped vertical mullions.
The trays are fixed to the vertical mullions using extruded profiles made from aluminium alloy 6063 T6.
Male Female Rainscreen Systems (MFR)
It is best suited for high-rises, commercial and modular structures.
MFR makes the façade strong. The fixing of horizontal full-length male and female profile fixed to the panels ensures just that.
MFR saves time and facilitates the fastest installation thanks to the interlocking process.
MFR allows for hand routing machine to be used. It can almost be completely pre-fabricated offsite. This saves time and cost.
Almost zero maintenance
The maintenance cost incurred is almost zero.
MFR increases the longevity of the facade by a minimum of 20%. It also comes with a warranty of 12 years (with any Aludecor ACP). Furthermore if installed through Aludecor Systems then the warranty extends to 15 years for AL45 ACP of Aludecor.
An ACP facade installed through MFR system has grooves of minimum 3mm width – which can go up to 32mm depending on wind load, panel size and design - that grant the structure a monolithic look. It offers unmatched flatness and has no possibility of undulation.
MFR gives a ventilated façade that facilitates insulation. Clubbed with insulation materials it helps to save energy by 30% at least. An equivalent level of insulation cannot be achieved by traditional wet seal or rout and return method.
