TUC-S Concealed Fibre Concrete Facade Panel Fastening Solution

Application

Secret fix installation of fibre concrete cladding panels.

Description

Used on secret fix Rainscreen systems for installing a 3 mm bracket at the back of 13 mm Fibre Concrete Facade Panels. Rivets have a 6 mm diameter body and a 3.3 mm mandrel.

Firstly, a pilot hole will be drilled into the back of the facade panel using a 6 mm stop drill bit. The pre-drilled bracket is then positioned over the hole, and the TUC-S rivet is pushed through the bracket into the hole and the mandrel is completely removed using a riveting tool.

Installation can be performed quickly, securely and easily by one person. Installation time can also be reduced by up to 50% compared with conventional blind attachments. This product can also be removed once installed if required.

This fastening solution cannot be overdriven during installation, due to its radial expansion. When the mandrel is removed, the partially cut thread becomes wedged into the back of the facade panel material, generating very high pull out values. Spontaneous slackening due to expansion or vibration is impossible.


Features and benefits:

  • Rivet specifically designed for secret fixing of cladding panels, thread geometry expands radially into part II.
  • Hollow design prevents moisture from being trapped in panel and hex head allows rivet to be removed without damaging panel.
