Sustainable cladding of aesthetic facades

With the CROSSFIX® substructure system

13.01.2021, Construction Division

EJOT is revolutionizing rear-ventilated facade construction with the CROSSFIX® substructure system. The CROSSFIX® console made of A4 stainless steel, in addition to the requirements for the implementation of aesthetic facades, also takes into account the constantly growing ecological and economic requirements such as energy saving and climate protection.

For all architectural challenges
CROSSFIX® is the first substructure made of stainless steel that can be used for horizontal and vertical support profiles. In addition to the resulting maximum flexibility, the stainless steel material used offers further significant advantages over systems made of aluminium. The high strength of stainless steel enables maximum load-carrying capacity and thus expands the design freedom in the planning and execution of rear-ventilated facades. In addition, the console made of stainless steel creates only a minimal thermal bridge compared to aluminium. This energy efficiency enables a lower insulation thickness in the substructure and thus an increase in the usable area – this enables the achievement of significantly improved U-values.

Winner of the DETAIL Product Award 2020
CROSSFIX® was recently awarded the "Product Award 2020" from the renowned architecture magazine DETAIL in the roof and facade category. When determining the award winners, the aspects of design, innovative character, functionality, sustainability and integration capability were assessed in particular.
