This year, K2 Systems will once again showcase proven fastening components for different roofing coverings as well as new certifications for the innovative installation systems at the leading French trade fair in Lyon. The expected 30,000 visitors to the fair can look forward to seeing the MiniRail System as an optimized addition to the tried and tested SpeedRail System, which is particularly useful for trapezoidal sheet roofs common in France, alongside the S-Dome flat roof system and the newly certified CrossHook 3S roof hook. "One-on-one discussions with our customers and interesting support program make BePositive the most significant trade fair in France," says Nicolas Iznard, a sales representative in the French sales team.
CrossHook 3S roof hook certified throughout Europe
The CrossHook 3S roof hook received the European Technical Certification (ETA), in the winter of 2016. "We are especially proud of the ETA certification for our CrossHook 3S roof hook, since we received generally applicable approval for all of Europe", said Katharina David, CEO of K2 Systems. The acquired certification ETA-16/0709 is valid throughout Europe and equates with the ATEC certification that is conventional in France.
In combination with the SingleRail and CrossRail mounting rails, the CrossHook 3S roof hook is used to fix photovoltaic systems on pitched roofs with pantiles. It is vertically and laterally adjustable in 3 positions in the base plate and can also be used on narrow rafters.
SpeedRail all-rounder with only four installation steps
The SpeedRail long-rail system is suitable for fastening onto trapezoidal sheet roofs. It is not without reason that this is the bestselling system. It is quickly installed in four steps in a floating manner and therefore has a controlled linear extension. The mounting rail is inserted into the previously fastened SpeedClips, which are fixed on the trapezoidal sheet as a mounting bracket.
"The simple installation of the system with the practical SpeedClips has proven its worth and is also very popular with French fitters," reports Joao Monteiro (Technical Sales at K2 Systems in France).
S-Dome System convinces with its high reliability
A unilateral 10° elevation for flat roofs with a foil and bitumen covering as well as concrete is made possible with the S-Dome System. The aerodynamically optimized system tested in the wind tunnel consists of the Dome modular suspension element and the SpeedRail, which can also be used in the flat roof area thanks to the modular design at K2 Systems. The S-Dome is quick and simple to use, since it is designed for construction site operations.
The K2 Base On software will handle the calculation and configuration of the D- and S-Dome Systems from spring 2017 onwards. The online tool allows intuitive and rapid planning, which continues to be free and is equipped with satellite images from Google Maps and great graphical drawing tools.
Notification: MiniRail System will soon acquire important ETN certification
The innovative MiniRail short rail system for trapezoidal sheet metal is impressive with its flexible module universal module clamp that rotates up to 90°, and with its simple logistical handling. It will receive the coveted ETN certification in spring 2017.
