Use the Parameters tab in the Kingspan Standard Horizontal Cladding Support Properties panel to control how the connecting members are defined within Tekla Structures.
|G Rails Positions||A mixture of G140/150 and L145 supports can be included within the same bay. This value determines the number/location of g rails in the bay. This works inconjunction with the Horizontal Channel Positions field to define the number of restraints in the bay. The greatest number on either field will determin the total number of struts. For example '4' in the G Rail Postions and '1 3' in the Horizontal Channel Positions will result in four struts at 1/5 points and the first and third struts will be horizontal channels.||The default number of divisions will be determined appropriately from the data files for the bay length.|
|Horizontal Channel Positions||This value determines the number/location of horizontal channels. See above.||The default behaviour is to use g rails only.|
|G Rail Gauge
|This specifies the thickness of the g rail to be used.||The default setting is 2mm.|
|This specifies the thickness of the channel to be used.||The default setting is 2mm.|
|Use diagonal wires to column at||This sets the position in the arrangement where diagonal tie wires will be added to the first and last struts to the column connection. This is writen as a list of bay numbers for example, 1 3 would put diagonal tie wires in the first and third bay (see image).||The default behaviour is to not place any tie wires.|
|Use diagonal wires to mid struts at||This sets the position in the arrangement where diagonal tie wires will be added from the middle to the two adjacent struts. This is writen as a list of bay numbers for example, 1 3 would put diagonal tie wires in the first and third bay (see image).||The default behaviour is to not place any tie wires.|
(Tie Wire, TRHD)
|This specifies the diagonal tie type to be used.||The default is set to Tie Wire|
(Default, Black, Galvanised, Powder coated)
|This specifies the finish of the cleat. If set to Default it will use the Kingspan default finish.||The default is set to Default.|
|Face Strut to the
|This controls the direction of the strut created. If this is set to Left then looking from the first rail selected to the second, the rail support will be orientated so that the strut faces to the left. The Right option similarly causes the Rail Support to face to the right.||The default is set to Right.||
|Top Cleat Bolt Grade||This sets the bolt standard for the strut connecting to the last rail. If left empty the general bolt grade will be used.||The default setting is 8.8XOX.|
|General Bolt Grade||This sets the standard for all bolts added by the macrosaved series of actions that includes instructions for a program
Macros are located in the applications and components catalog. They are recorded or created manually and stored as .cs file in a folder defined with the advanced option XS_MACRO_DIRECTORY.
Macros can, for example, be used for creating drawings or reports.
Macros are sometimes used to run an application.
|The default setting is 8.8XOX.|
|Bottom Cleat Bolt Grade||This sets the bolt standard for the strut connecting to the first rail. If left empty the general bolt grade will be used.||The default setting is 8.8XOX.|
|Classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user
The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.
|This sets the class that all parts will be included in.||The default setting is 99.|
