Special connector system made with polycarbonate multiwall panels UV protected, specifically designed to achieve large translucent facades and building envelopes characterized by high thermal insulation performance
ArcoPlus® DB connect system has been developed to offer, thanks to its triple layer composition, the highest performance in terms of thermal insulation and energy sustainability with the purpose of carry out imposing translucent continuous facades; at the same time minimizing the visual impact of the supporting substructure. The special multi-joints profile “double connector” allows to build a unique wall consisting of 3 layers of paneling, which can be customized by choosing the most suitable arcoPlus® panel in order to give the most suitable coloring or to apply the appropriate surface treatment. Moreover, the hollow spaces between the three vertical layers allow a complete natural recirculation of air throughout all seasons, bringing benefits for the health of the environments and for reducing heating/cooling costs.

The full DB connect configuration requires a triple layer, obtained by choosing the most suitable product for each layer and assembled thanks to the exclusive Double Connector profile, in order to significantly reduces the thermal dispersion of transparent facades. In addition, this multi-joints profile has been developed in double version, both in polycarbonate and aluminum, to give greater load resistance or greater transparency depending on the application needs. So, thanks to the special connection profile, it’s possible to combine the two outer layers, which are made with arcoPlus® 626/ 9207/ 9327 panels, with the inner optional one consisting of multiwall or compact sheets, thickness 8/10mm. The use of aluminum profiles for perimeter framing with thermal –break and the positioning of the connection profile inside the arcoPlus® layer allows to achieve a structure self-bearing without any passing screws or through holes This installation system excludes the thermal bridges presence to enhance the energy performance and guarantees the aesthetic homogeneity of whole continuous surface. To understand the energy benefits of this “TRANSLUCENT WALL”, it’s enough thinking that:high-performance glass window reach a thermal transmittance value of 1.2 W/m2K, while a multiwall polycarbonate panel with double air-channel reaches 0.62 W/m2K. In addition, the outer side of the arcoPlus® PC panel can be co-extruded with special UV-absorbers put into the mass to give greater resistance to prevent yellowing and aging damage due to solar exposure. The system has a complete set of aluminum profiles and gaskets for correct/sure laying the panels. For proper installation, the polycarbonate panels are provided with special micro-perforated aluminum adhesive tapes, which allows for appropriate ventilation to prevent internal dirt pollutions.
