Principles for fitting VETAbric panels in the case of prefabricated cladding on add-on insulation
At the base of the wall, an aluminium section has to be fastened. The width of this section depends on the thickness of the panel and of the insulation in-between. Any flatness defects in the support should not exceed 5 mm on a 20 cm rule. Should this not be the case, preparation must be carried out (sanding, resurfacing, etc.)
The panels are fastened using wall plugs and screws compatible with the support and the thickness of the insulation in-between. These fastenings are laid out in the grouting in-between the facing bricks.
The panels are laid out row by row with continuous or offset joins. The panels are assembled vertically by interlocking them. Horizontally, a rebate system enables the panels to be made waterproof.
Façades’ corners may be handled either using corner panels with or without interlocking, or using aluminium sections.
Openings’ corners can be handled using corner panels with or without interlocking, using aluminium sections or any other framing system.
The cutting to be carried out in order to lay out the assembly can easily be done using a jig saw or an angle grinder equipped with appropriate blades and disks. For a perfect assembly of the cuts and of the panels, polyurethane filler should be applied in-between the pieces.
The final grouting can be done in two different ways depending on the model of brick involved:
