There are 2 types of fixing methods used to fix facades/cladding panels to a timber batten or aluminium support system.
Visible fix using screws or rivets
Screw fixing is the easiest and most cost-effective way of fixing cladding panels onto a timber support framework.
Rivet fixing is used to fix the façade to an aluminium support framework.
We are able to supply both screw and rivet colour matched fixings alongside (or separate) to your façade order.
This method uses either adhesive or a horizontal carrier frame and panel brackets.
Adhesive can be used on timber or aluminium. The vertical carrier rail and panel are cleaned and primed then a bead of adhesive is located alongside a line of adhesive tape. This will achieve a clean seamless appearance.
The mechanical secret fix consists of hangers fixed to the rear of the board which are hung onto a horizontal carrier rail. These systems vary, depending on the façade / cladding panel used.
We are able to supply both fixing options for façade installation.
