Thermal facade fixings
Thermal facades are an important factor in the energy performance of a building. That is why they must be fixed correctly. IPEX offers various fixing methods for thermal facades. Fixing a thermal facade Self-driling screws are commonly used to fix thermal facades. In this method, the facade panels are attached to the underlying frame construction using self-drilling screws. Blind rivets and truss head screws are also suitable for fixing thermal facades and are mainly used in situations where it is difficult to use screws. Aluminium profiles are also a popular fixing method for thermal facades. These profiles can be made to measure and ensure a firm attachment of the facade panels. EPDM tapes can be used to fix the facade panels and provide a watertight seal between the panel and the underlying structure. It is also possible to use glue to attach the cladding to the sub-frame construction.
