The safety withholding hook RAI-FIX is a simple and effective device that prevents the tile/slab (set with adhesive) to fall down in the event of detachment from the wall.
When installing tiles/slabs bigger that 30 cm – 12”- (being them in ceramic, porcelain or natural stone) in façade with adhesive, it is required to use a mechanical safety system which prevents the tile / slab to fall down in the event of detachment of the adhesive.*
Indeed adhesives guarantee perfect anchorage of the tile/slab only if perfectly applied. But this is not always the case.
In addition to that, it is hard to predict the strains the tile/slab will have to bear because of building’s settlement as well as expansion for temperature range, extreme weather conditions, earthquake and so on…
Therefore, the safety withholding hook RAI-FIX is a crucial ally of the architect/designer (and of course of the buyer) to assure the maximum safety. In addition to that RAI-FIX expands the design possibilities since tiles and slabs of any size can be now used.
Aesthetically speaking, RAI-FIX is the perfect solution since it is completely invisible once the façade is done. In fact RAI-FIX has to be placed between the tile / slab and the wall and therefore it is 100% hidden.
The safety withholding hook RAI-FIX is made of stainless steel and can be used with tiles / slabs of minimum thickness 5 mm (0.20 inches).
The installation is very simple and is carried out directly on the jobsite in a few seconds.
* Regulations may vary from Country to Country. Therefore it is necessary to refer to the legislation in force in the area where the building /jobsite rises.
The RAI-CUT MkII device is part of the RAI-FIX system. RAI-CUT is fundamental to create the slot in the back of the tile/slab. Slot where to insert the RAI-FIX hook.
