Horizontal Rail Top Clip
A horizontal rail top clip is a type of mechanical fixing used to attach horizontal rails to a support structure in a cladding or façade system.
The horizontal rail top clip is typically made of a durable and corrosion-resistant material, such as aluminium or stainless steel. It is designed to accommodate the specific size and profile of the horizontal rail being used, and is typically installed using mechanical fixings, such as screws or rivets.
The top clip is attached to the support structure and is designed to hold the horizontal rail in place at the top of the rail. It allows for some movement of the rail to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction, which can help to prevent damage to the cladding or façade system over time.
In addition to their functional benefits, horizontal rail top clips also provide a relatively easy and cost-effective installation process compared to other secret fix cladding systems. The clips can be easily removed and replaced, if necessary, which makes maintenance and repairs straightforward and efficient.
Overall, horizontal rail top clips are a versatile and reliable mechanical fixing option for secret fix cladding and façade systems, providing a secure and aesthetically pleasing installation that is suitable for a range of commercial and industrial applications.
