Rail Systems – Intermediate Support

Cladding rails require intermediate support when their span is in excess of 2.5m. This is achieved using intermediate struts with diagonal ties back to the columns.

Struts are positioned at mid point for spans up to 6.1m and at third span positions for spans up to 9m.

Consult Albion technical for spans in excess of 9m

Mid Point Support for Side Rails
Third Point Support for Side Rails

The side rail support system for Mid and Third Point Supports will suit most conditions.
Diagonal Tie Wires are required for Anti-Sag Minimum Requirements for Long Roof Slopes exceeding 20m.
