Fixing the facade

Fixing a facade is an important step in the building process. It is very important that the facade is securely and firmly attached to prevent possible damage and dangerous situations. The use of drill screws is a commonly used method for fixing facade panels. The disadvantage of this method is that the screw heads can be visible and leakage problems can arise 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 to attach a facade?

Step 1: Preparing the facade

Before you start fixing the cladding, 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 cladding to size

Measure the length and width of the 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 panel. Make sure the glue is evenly distributed and there are no lumps or bubbles. Use a suitable glue, specially designed for the cladding you are using.

Step 4: Applying the sealant

Apply the sealant to the back of the 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 panel and the wall.

Step 5: Fixing the cladding

Place the 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 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 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.
