HK5 – with increased load capacities and reduced thermal heat transfer

Combining timeless design with long life and low maintenance costs: the brickwork façade. To ensure that brickwork façades continue to meet the increasing demands for energy efficiency, we have been continuously developing our brickwork support over the years.

The HK5 is the latest generation of brickwork support. Improvements in geometry and material mean a more energy efficient, stronger and more economical bracket.

Reduced thermal conductivity
HALFEN HK5 is characterized by the highest energy and cost efficiency. It incorporates the advantages of proven Lean Duplex steel and has optimum, expertly confirmed Chi-values. The new slim design reduces heat transfer by up to 27% compared to the already improved HK4 Thermo. No additional insulation of the bracket is necessary.

Higher loads – more economical
Optimised geometry and a stiffer, angled design through the body of the bracket make for higher load classes (4.0, 8.0 and 12.0 kN) and mean fewer brackets are needed – reducing installation times, transport costs and storage requirements on-site.

HALFEN HK5 is type-tested and approved by DIBT, and is engineered to the high standards our customers have come to expect of all HALFEN products.
The notched head plate provides positive load transfer to the structure and the anti-slip protection ensures safe assembly.

Choose a brickwork façade for your project now – for economy, long-life and aesthetics, while meeting the highest building physics requirements!

HALFEN HIT Insulated connection and HALFEN Cast-in channels receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

An EPD® (Environmental Product Declaration) provides transparent and comparable ecological data which helps to evaluate the sustainability of a building. Already during the planning phase the data provided here is of great significance for architects and planners. The data provided also helps to ensure the high demands on the environmental performance of the building are met.

EPDs form the data basis for an environmental building assessment in accordance with DIN EN 15978. The declarations are internationally coordinated; they are based on international standards (ISO 14025; ISO 14040ff) – as well as on European DIN EN 15804.

The EPD for the HALFEN HIT-HP MVX-0805-20-100 balcony connection and HALFEN Cast-in channels HTA-CE and HZA was presented by the Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) during the BAU 2017 Trade fair.
