Maximum Thermal Efficiency
From Telling Architectural
Telling Architectural introduces its MTE (Maximum Thermal Efficiency) support system for its Argeton terracotta rainscreen. The new system is designed to eliminate the continuous aluminum rails that have been traditionally used to hold rigid or semi-rigid insulation materials in place.
Telling’s point supported MTE bracket system works on a point penetration method rather than continuous channels, allowing the insulation to form around the bracket creating a tight, effective thermal barrier. The unique design of the brackets allows for a rail to be placed outside of the plane of insulation and not penetrate the thermal barrier. The rail that is mounted on the outermost point of the brackets serves as the fixation point for the Argeton vertical support channels that hold the tiles.
An added design benefit is that it allows a smooth change of tile plane within the elevation creating a multi-dimensional expression of the tiles. The brackets come in varying depths to meet the project requirements. The MTE system also allows greater flexibility to accommodate varying thicknesses of insulation materials.
