Ancillary package and fasteners
As part of the Europanel system Eurobond manufacture pre-formed
corners. We can supply single or double cranked, horizontal
internal or external corners and sinlge cranked vertical corners.
details and corner order forms are available in
the specification and download sections.
Eurobond recommend that fasteners should be stainless steel, the
exact specification depends upon panel thickness and the gauge of
steel work to which the panels are to be mechanically fixed.
Specifiers can choose from a wide variety of proprietary
fasteners and should refer to the manufacturers' literature for the
full range of available products. Most of the fasteners used for
metal cladding applications are self-tapping and self-drilling,
although self-tapping only screws are also available.
Fasteners can generally be divided into two categories:
Primary fasteners: transfer the loads from the
cladding to the primary and/or secondary steelwork. Their main
function is, therefore, structural.
Secondary fasteners: are used to form the
interface between additional features and the panel face (e.g.
flashings; rails to carry Rainspan architectural façades).
While their primary purpose is to provide a weathertight seal at
the joint, their structural properties may be used to provide
lateral restraint and to transfer load.
Visible fasteners have the option of factory coloured plastic
heads to suit the weathered sheet. For details please consult our
fastener guide below.
