Trespa fixing system

Trespa panels are a popular choice for cladding because of their durability and excellent weather resistance. Self-drilling screws are commonly used to fix Trespa panels, but can cause leakage problems if the sealing is not done properly. That is why it is important to use other methods such as sealants, glue, profiles and anchors to create a safe and aesthetically pleasing facade.

How do I attach trespa panels to a facade?

Step 1: Preparing the facade

Before you start fixing the Trespa panels, make sure that the facade is clean and free of dust and dirt. Also check that the wall is level and that there are no protruding elements on which the facade panels can get stuck.

Step 2: Cutting the Trespa panels to size

Measure the length and width of the Trespa panels and cut to size. Make sure the panels overlap, to get a watertight seal. Also take into account the corner profiles, which are necessary to cover the edges of the panels.

Step 3: Applying the glue

Apply the glue to the back of the Trespa panel. Make sure the glue is evenly distributed and there are no lumps or bubbles. Use a suitable glue, specially designed for Trespa facade cladding.

Step 4: Applying the sealant

Apply the sealant to the back of the Trespa panel and press it firmly. The sealant is an important part of the fixing process, because it prevents water or dirt from getting between the Trespa panel and the wall.

Step 5: Fixing the Trespa cladding

Place the Trespa panel against the wall and make sure it is level. Then drill a hole in the panel and wall. Fix the panel with a self-drilling screw and make sure it is tight.

Step 6: Using profiles

Cover the edges of the Trespa 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.

Step 7: Using anchors

If the Trespa 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 Trespa 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 Trespa panels and the environment in which the facade will be installed.
