Before you start fixing the panels, make sure that the facade is clean and free of dust and dirt. Measure the length and width of the panels and cut to size. Make sure the panels overlap, to prevent water or dirt from getting between the panel and the wall. Also take into account the corner profiles, which are necessary to cover the edges of the panels.
Apply the glue to the back of the panel and affix the seal on the back of the panel. The sealant is an important part of the fixing process, because it prevents water or dirt from getting between the panel and the wall. Place the panel against the wall and drill a hole in the panel and wall. Fix the panel with a self-drilling screw and make sure it is tight.
Installing corner profiles
Cover the edges of the panels with corner profiles. Other types of profiles can be used as well, such as U-profiles and Z-profiles, depending on the size and shape of the facade. These profiles provide extra strength and give the facade a beautiful finish.
If the panels are very large or if wind load is considerable, it is wise to use extra anchors. Anchors give extra strength and stability to the facade and prevent the panels from wobbling or coming loose.
By using these methods for fixing panels to a facade, you can create a safe and beautiful facade. When choosing the fixing methods, take into account the specific properties of the panels and the environment in which the facade will be installed.
