A38 / A50 system 'A' patch fittings - design information

Arden has selected a clean and geometric style for components in the System A patch fittings, reflecting the modern trend appropriate for the vast majority of projects.

 


The Arden System ‘A’ (including A38D and A50D) family of patch fitting assemblies was designed to fulfil a number of roles, replacing a range of components with a single unified fixing system. In staircase and balustrade projects, fixings are often required between a variety of materials within a single installation, e.g. nogging to handrail, concrete to glass, stanchion to handrail and glass. By applying an integrated system of components, a uniform design style is maintained throughout the entire project.

Arden has selected a clean and geometric style for components in the System A patch fittings, reflecting the modern trend appropriate for the vast majority of projects. Visually characterised by precision fit cylinders with fine bevels, the A38D / A50D family purposefully avoids extraneous geometry. Depending on the character of the surrounding materials, the system can either present a functional feature of the project, or recede visually without distracting from surrounding architectural features.

Most patch fittings are available in either 38mm or 50mm diameter clamps. The 38mm option is suitable for smaller spans or lower design loads when a lighter and more slimline appearance is required. This option is recommended by Arden for most residential projects. By covering a greater area, the 50mm version offers greater structural support to each point fixing. It is suitable for large spans and high design loads, and is often specified in commercial projects.
