Steel facade system

Jansen VISS Facade

Intermediary connector.

Jansen VISS Linea mullion connected to Skellet with intermediary.

Summary

The Jansen VISS facade system, based on intermediaries and interlock connection, allows different subsystems to be assembled and disassembled independently by locking one element to two connecting parts.

Details

An intermediary connects the steel profiles to the load-bearing system, based on interlocking. Facade elements such as glazing are clamped to the mullion/transom structure using pins and clamping profiles. An aluminium cover profile is clicked on from the outside for finishing.
