This document is intended to provide general recommendations only.
Trespa provides these guidelines and all testing, code and design data for informational purposes only and strongly advises that the customer, project owner and architect seek independent advice from a certified construction professional and/or engineer regarding application and installation as well as compliance with design requirements, applicable codes, laws and regulations, and test standards. Please check your local codes and applicable design requirements for proper use.
Invisible fixing (concealed) with adhesive on an aluminium or timber subframe
Although the majority of past Trespa installations have been mechanically fixed, the use of adhesive fixing systems is possible under certain conditions, including careful attention to various installation details, installation by a qualified party in accordance with all guidelines and recommendations of a qualified adhesive manufacturer, and in compliance with all applicable codes. Trespa is not responsible for the selection or use of adhesives in fixing systems.
Trespa® Meteon® panels of various thicknesses may be fixed to a vertical aluminium or timber subframe using a permanently flexible adhesive system.
General installation details
Cavity depth and ventilation
For a continuous ventilation behind the panel, Trespa recommends the free air cavity depth between the rainscreen cladding and the insulation or wall construction to be between 20 and 50 mm, in order to allow for ambient air to flow through from the ventilation inlets and outlets. Ventilation inlets and outlets must be the equivalent of minimum 50 square cm per linear meter over the whole façade. Cavity depth as well as ventilation inlets and outlets must be in accordance with applicable building standards, regulations and certificates.
The horizontal aluminium rails can be fixed on a vertical timber or aluminium subframe. Trespa® Meteon® panels must be installed on a subframe of sufficient strength and permanent durability. Quality and/or treatment of the subframe must be in accordance with applicable building standards, regulations and certificates. Some countries may allow the use of a stainless/galvanized steel subframe. Please consult the certificate or contact your local Trespa representative.
TS300 can only be used for horizontal single-field spans. As a result, the maximum panel height is limited
Not all joint solutions are possible with 8 mm thick Trespa® Meteon® panels
To retain position each panel must have one glued fixed point (with proprietary adhesive system e.g. polyurethane) on the bottom rail central in the panel length
The design and installation guidelines of the adhesive supplier are imperative. The following best practices are a result of many years of experiences with adhesive fixed facade cladding in countries where such fixing methods are allowed and certified.
For all countries Trespa strongly advises that the customer, project owner and architect seek independent advice from a construction professional regarding compliance to national and/or local building regulations of fixing systems. The information below does not contain all requirements with regard to the certificates. For design and installation, the complete certificate(s) must be considered.
* Please consult the adhesive system certificate
Recommended maximum fixing distances based on Trespa Meteon panel characteristics
* The maximum permitted fixing distances shown have been designed with with a maximum (wind)load of 600 N/m2 and maximum deflection of L/200.
** Based on the surface properties of Gloss panels, the fixing distances are reduced.
Fixing distances must be calculated in accordance with applicable local standards, regulations and certificates and should be verified by a structural engineer.
