Façade panels riveted on an aluminium supporting structure - 1

Application instructions Façade panels riveted on an aluminium supporting structure Ventilated façade 1 These application instructions are specifically intended for the fastening of large-size EURO PANELS OVERSEAS N.V. façade panels as outside wall cladding on a ventilated and insulated structure in aluminium, fixed to a back construction. A number of basic principles are given that must be adhered to. For variations or additional advice one can always contact EURO PANELS OVERSEAS N.V.. Cladding material The following EURO PANELS OVERSEAS N.V. products are treated in this document. • • • • • • TECTIVA OPERAL TEXTURA NATURA NATURA PRO PICTURA Product data and processing information can be found in the product information sheets, available from EURO PANELS OVERSEAS N.V.. For façade or ceiling applications only rectified boards may be used, non-rectified boards should not be used uncut. REMARK: When sawing NATURA and NATURA PRO, the sawed edges must be impregnated with LUKO (a transparent impregnating agent) to minimize local colour differences due to moisture absorption. These instructions apply for buildings up to a certain height and subjected to a maximum actual wind load in a certain wind zone. The maximum intermediate distance of the supporting structure is determined in relation to the occurring wind load taking into account a safety factor. The table below only shows non-binding reference values for the wind loads. The exact values can be found in the standards NBN B 03-002-1; NEN 6702:2001 and NBN-EN 1991-1-4. Location Building height Middle area façade Max. actual wind load Edge area façade and single span Wind zone Max. center-to-center distance supporting laths mm Max. actual wind load N/m² Max. center-to-center distance supporting laths mm Land Coast * The fixing of OPERAL to a building height higher than 20 m is not advised. The width of the edge area amounts to at least 1 m from the corner of the building and must be further determined on the basis of prevailing national standards and conditions. If variations of the aforementioned load limits occur (e.g. due to certain location or form factors, etc.), the design must be determined by building services engineers. When the façade panels are exposed to weather conditions (rain, sun) they may only be assembled on a vertical or leaned over supporting structure. For ceiling applications reference is made to the relevant application guidelines. G032-FACADE PANELS_riveted on alu_ai_eng_10-01-2011 EURO PANELS OVERSEAS N.V., Technical Service Centre

Application instructions Façade panels riveted on an aluminium supporting structure 5 Supporting structure Restriction has to be made when using an aluminium supporting structure in aggressive environments, where the aluminium of the supporting structure can be corroded, such as for example in coastal locations (minimum one kilometre from the coastline). The design and dimensions of the supporting structure in relation to the load fall under the guarantee conditions of the supplier of the supporting structure. This document only explains a number of general principles. The EURO PANELS...

Application instructions Façade panels riveted on an aluminium supporting structure A. SUPPORTING BRACKET The aluminium supporting brackets allow the gradual varying of the distance between structural work and rear of the panel. This means an air cavity can be provided, insulation can be placed, and any unevenness of the rear wall can be eliminated. There are different types of supporting brackets depending on the supplier of the supporting structure. In this document the supporting brackets are diagrammatically represented as follows. The distance between the brackets is determined by the...

Application instructions Façade panels riveted on an aluminium supporting structure B. ALUMINIUM SUPPORTING PROFILES There are different types of aluminium sections depending on the supplier of the supporting structure. In this document the aluminium section are diagrammatically represented as follows. T-profile: at the vertical joints between the façade panels L-profile: middle support The vertical aluminium sections and the surface they form must be sufficiently even. • maximum unevenness The aluminium supporting profiles are placed vertically so that penetrating or condensation water can...

Application instructions Façade panels riveted on an aluminium supporting structure C. FIXING SYSTEM PROFILE – SUPPORTING BRACKET In view of the high thermal coefficient of expansion of aluminium, the aluminium sections must be fixed in such a way that free movement is possible. The system for fixing the supporting brackets to the profile must accommodate the expansion of the aluminium sections. This is achieved by fixing the sections with one fixed fastening point (F: fixed point) and at other places free fastening points (G: floating point). The fixed fastening points are located at the...

Application instructions Façade panels riveted on an aluminium supporting structure E. POINTS OF PARTICULAR ATTENTION: INTERACTION OF SUPPORTING STRUCTURE AND FAÇADE CLADDING When designing the supporting structure for the outside wall cladding it is very important that movements of the aluminium sections can be accommodated by the façade cladding system, and not result into tension in the façade cladding sheets. A joint between the aluminium sections must always coincide with a joint between the panels. The joint is preferably continued at the same height. A façade sheet must always be...
