VitraDual Rivet Fix

Application

External cladding.

Description

A1 rated, non-combustible, highly impact resistant solid panel aluminium cladding, providing high durability and mechanical benefits. Designed to provide a non-combustible aluminium panel solution that can be fitted as both cassette panels and flat sheets with no oil-canning appearance, offering a cost effective, non-combustible and aesthetically pleasing alternative to other flat sheet panel systems. VitraDual can be combined with Vitrabond cladding panels when required.

The system uses a 2 mm or 3 mm thick cladding panel which is a durable, impact resistant solid panel and can be prefabricated through curving, rolling or perforation. VitraDual uses a polyvinylidene fluoride or polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) coating system which can be colour matched or provided in RAL colours, stone and wood effect finishes. VitraDual cladding panels are prefinished which means they do not need fabrication prior to the coating process.

Features and benefits:

  • Lightweight - rigid and lightweight, and therefore also easy to install.
  • Non-combustible - A1 rated (to BS EN 13501-1) covering any colour and air gap.
  • Versatile - Can be custom designed into a wide range of shapes and dimensions along with perforated or curved in some applications.
  • Easy to maintain compared to polyester based coatings.
  • CWCT tested and accredited to wind loading of 3600 Pa safety loading.
  • BBA accredited.
  • Highly durable and impact resistant, can be used effectively in high traffic areas.
  • Paint system - uses the highly recognised PVDF KYNAR 500 or FEVE paints known for their high durability, providing the optimum resistance to weather and industrial pollutants.
  • Warranty available up to 30 years - consult manufacturer for details.

  • Also available as Vitrabond/A2 Rivet Fix (specified separately).
