Fiber cement board’s fixing system with visible rivets.

As typical rivet system the main advantages of rivets are:

– fast and easy installation.

– it is possible to remove the cladding boards for any reason (installing video surveillance, air conditioner, facade lighting) just over-drill the rivets, demount the boards and then mount again with new rivets.

–  vibration proof system, providing long life for your facades.

– free thermal expansion and contraction of the boards (panels).

Specially designed blind rivets are used in this system. In order to ensure long and hassle-free usage the mandrel and the body of the rivets are made of high corrosion resistance materials.

The shape of the rivets is designed for best looking with very thin head (less than 1,6  mm).

Two component, scratch resistance coating is applied in any RAL color to match the cladding boards.

Rivet specifications:

The standard length L=16 mm. (other lengths are possible by request).

Rivet strength:

Shear strength: 2107 N ± 10%.

Tensile strength: 2842 N ± 10%.

Materials:

Body:  Aluminum AlMg3,5

Mandrel:  Stainless Steel A2

 

To ensure free thermal expansion and contraction of the boards there is a typical method of drilling and fixing with aluminum sleeves.

What is different in this system is the usage of special aluminum sleeves for fixed points.
