Application

A ceramic facade system for panel applications.

Description

KeraTwin® is a facade system with a wide variety of colours. In addition to the “SpectraView” range of colours, comprising nine harmoniously co-ordinated colour families and contrasting colours, the “Natura unglazed”, “Design unglazed” and “Design glazed” colour systems are also available.


On request, the panels are also supplied with profiles which, due to their three-dimensional texture, can make large facades appear less monotonous and lend an entire building a distinctive character. The joints are realised in such a way that the construction is optimally protected against driving rain. With their relatively low weight of 32 kg/m², the panels are easy to transport and install.


The KeraTwin® system variants essentially differ in terms of their fastenings which depend on the requirements of the specific project. The vertical K20 system rail, for example, offers freedom of design and a wide range of accessories. As the panels are hung on the system rail, no additional tools are required for installation.


Even faster and more efficient laying is possible using the K20 T-profile which requires fewer individual components in the substructure. The vertical K20 Omega profile is specially designed for efficient installation on difficult bases, e.g. walls with post and beam construction. The K20 clamp system permits mounting of the panels in a horizontal and vertical direction and on ceilings.


AGROB BUCHTAL has developed standard technical details, which can be adapted to the project-specific requirements as needed – also as special production. This includes, for example, terminations at windows, doors and the corresponding embrasures, both horizontal and vertical. In addition, mitre-cut panels for corner solutions and corner profiles (rectangular or rounded) facilitate the design of facade details.


Features and benefits:

  • Offers additional options in terms of surface finish. In addition to the glossy, silky-matt or unglazed surfaces.
  • Glazed tiles available in any RAL colour.
  • System variants essentially differ in terms of their fastenings which depend on the requirements of the specific project. 
  • Construction is optimally protected against driving rain.
  • Easy to transport and install due to relatively low weight.
  • Available with Hytect coating (self-washing effect).
  • Lightweight ceramic system which saves both carbon and cost vs other ceramic systems.

Fastening by means of vertical system rail K20.

Guidance for specification option:

  •  The profiles of the basic substructure have to be mounted perpendicularly and in a flush way. (T-profile width ≥ 80 mm; recommended width ≥ 100 mm).
  • The system rails K20 (Art. no. 620, 625, 630) have to be precisely aligned horizontally and fastened at the provided holes by means of screws (Art. no. 659-01) or rivets (Art. no. 658).
  • The distance of the system rails K20 in horizontal direction must correspond to the longitudinal grid of the panels.
  •  The length of the vertical profiles must be divisible by the height of the panel format and should not exceed the height of a storey of the building.
  • A profile butt joint behind a panel is not allowed.
  • In case of open vertical joints, one joint spacer per panel (Art. no. 645) is inserted in a centric extrusion hole of the panel.
  • In case of closed vertical joints, the joint profile (Art. no. 640 in case of single-span girder; plug-in joint profile, Art. no. 647, in case of single-span girder with jibs) must be used.

Fastening by means of vertical T-profile K20.

Guidance for specification option:

  • Mount the T-profiles K20 (Art. no. 695) perpendicularly and in a flush way.
  •  Exactly align the T-profiles K20 horizontally.
  • Open vertical joints with T-profile K20 (Art. no. 695Q) with spacer (Art. no. 645).
  •  In the case of closed vertical joints, the joint profile (Art. no. 640Q in case of single-span girder, plug-in joint profile, Art. no. 647, in case of single-span girder with jibs) must be used.

Fastening by means of vertical Omega profile K20.

Guidance for specification option:

  •  The profiles of the basic substructure have to be mounted perpendicularly and in a flush way (top-hat or alternatively Z-profile).
  • The Omega profiles K20 (Art. no. 624, 627, 633) have to be precisely aligned horizontally and be fixed through the long holes provided on the edge by means of screws (Art. no. 659-01) or rivets (Art. no. 658). (Pay attention to fixed and sliding point execution!).
  •  The distance of the rails in horizontal direction must correspond to the longitudinal grid of the panels.
  • A profile butt joint behind a panel is not allowed.
  • In case of open vertical joints, one joint spacer per panel (Art. no. 645) is inserted in a centric extrusion hole of the panel.
  • n case of closed vertical joints, the joint profile (Art. no. 640 in case of single-span girder; plug-in joint profile, Art. no. 647, in case of single-span girder with jibs) must be used.

Fastening with OmegaV profile for laying in bonds.

Guidance for specification option:

  •  The profiles of the basic substructure have to be mounted perpendicularly and in a flush way.
  • Fix the horizontal supporting profiles (Art. no. 597) at the pre-installed vertical substructure by means of supplied fastening materials.
  •  Hang in the OmegaV profiles exactly at horizontal grid distance.
  •  The distance of the profiles in horizontal direction must correspond to the longitudinal grid of the panels.
  • The position of the OmegaV profiles is secured at the suspension brackets on the left and the right by means of screws (Art. no. 659-01).
  • In case of open vertical joints, one joint spacer per panel (Art. no. 645) is inserted in a centric extrusion hole of the panel.
  •  In case of closed vertical joints, the joint profile OmegaV (Art. no. 707) must be used.
  •  In case of single-span girder, the plug-in joint profile OmegaV (Art. no. 712 in case of single-span girder with jibs) must be used.

Fastening OmegaS with Omega profile and supporting profile.

Guidance for specification option:

  •  The profiles of the basic substructure have to be mounted perpendicularly and in a flush way.
  •  Fix the horizontal K20 Omega profiles (Art. no. 627) at the pre-installed vertical substructure by means of the supplied fastening materials. The vertical distance depends on the panel length - single-span girder (= 1/2 of panel length), with jibs on both sides (= 1/4 of panel length).
  •  Mount the supporting profiles according to the height grid (panel length + 8 mm).
  •  Position the securing brackets (Art. no. 711) at both Omega profiles and fix them.
  • Alternatively, secure upper and lower end of the panels at the supporting profiles by means of R-clamps (Art. nos. 682R, 683R, 684R).

Fastening with clamp system K20.

Guidance for specification option:

  •  The profiles of the basic substructure have to be mounted perpendicularly and in a flush way.
  •  The distance of the bearing profiles (profile width ≥ 60 mm) in horizontal direction must correspond to the longitudinal grid of the panels.
  • The length of the vertical profiles must be divisible by the height of the panel format and should not exceed the height of a storey of the building.
  • A profile butt joint behind a panel is not allowed.
  •  In the vertical joints, the black joint tape (Art. no. 506) can be applied.
  • The clamps (Art. no. 680, 681, 682, 683, 684) must be fastened with at least 2 rivets (Art. no. 675-01) or 2 screws (Art. no. 657).
  • For the processing of the rivets (Art. no. 675-01), an extended rivetting tool (25 mm) is required.
  •  In the area of the clamp fastening, the joints can be closed with the joint profile (Art. no. 688) and one holding clip for joint profile (Art. no. 689) per panel.
