The Keku fixing system uses a series of polycarbonate brackets that fix together to join various panels together. The joints that are produced by this system are remarkably strong and this strength can be improved by increasing the number of brackets fitted into any joint system.
The application of a wall cladding to any prospective wall has been made very easy by the use of the Keku system. In each case the brackets can be fixed onto the board with a series of Hospa composite screws or Varianta screws usually 2 screws per bracket. The wall cladding system will usually consist of a frame and panel design and the whole thing has the advantage that it can be generally made in a factory environment or in the final situation.
There has to be enough room to fit the brackets to the frame and so there will have to be enough space to enable this to be carried out. The general rule however is that there is an advantage to have a sufficiently large air gap behind the cladding. The bracket dimensions are usually fairly small being around 16 mm or 25 mm in width and some 48mm in length. Other brackets may be larger depending on their application.
The advantage with this system is that the brackets for a normal wall cladding system are usually such that they are used in a complete screwed system but the Keku system can be a hidden fixing system that is made with a series of plastic fixings made from Makrolon. The system is ideal for a hidden fixing system in places where occasional access may be required to equipment or services hidden behind the partitioned wall.
The partitioning can be held in position by a series of male and female type clamps. In this case the female fixing is fixed to the wall and the male to the partitioning. The panel is then lowered into position so that it locks into its final place. If access is required behind the partition then the panel can be lifted out and then replaced after the work is completed.
This is an ideal system in a bathroom or in a kitchen where access can be required when a problem occurs or equipment is changed or replaced. The system is simple and the costs are similar to the more permanent fixing systems that are on offer which require a series of screws to be removed to gain access to the back of the panel.
