Application

  • Both renovations and new buildings.
  • All shapes: Flat, curved, concave, convex, conical, domes.

Description

A ventilated cladding system that can be used for both renovation and new build. As the name implies, the system consists of seams that can be crimped in a single or double lock (for greater flatness single lock seams, sometimes referred to as angle seams, are recommended). The system has a traditional look with the seams being 25 mm high. The trays can be installed horizontally, vertically and at an angle.


The façade system offers the possibility to clad all types of walls: flat, curved or complex forms. Another advantage of this zinc façade system is that it can be used on both walls and roofs, thus allowing roof and wall to blend as one (standing seam roofs require double lock seams, and are specified separately).


The cladding panels can be various sizes - it is recommended that they be no more than 4000 mm in length and 430 mm in width; consult manufacturer for details. All aspects of VMZINC can be used, with 0.8 mm being the recommended thickness for facades.


Features and benefits:

  • Covered by Code of Practice 143-5: 1964.
  • Concealed fasteners.
  • Roof to wall continuity (roofing specified separately).
  • Versatile.
  • Horizontal, vertical and diagonal (angled) installation possible.
  • 25 mm high seam.


System build-up:

  • VMZ standing seam panels in VMZINC PLUS.
  • Fixing clip.
  • 18 mm plywood or steel deck.
  • Battens creating a vented 38 mm airspace.
  • Insulation protected by VMZ Membrane.


VMZINC PLUS:

A product which allows zinc to be installed on ventilated plywood as well as specific warm (non-ventilated) substrates. The product consists of VMZINC (in all finishes) having a 60 μm coating applied to the underside thus allowing a more varied amount of substrates to be used and eliminating the risk of the formation of white rust on the underside of the zinc standing seam panels. VMZINC PLUS resists to an abrasion of 140 L when tested in accordance with ASTM D 968.


Life Cycle Analysis (LCA):

VMZINC undertakes Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) tests on its products and publishes Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), such as BRE Environmental Profiles, available from our website www.vmzinc.co.uk and www.greenbooklive.com. These provide users with comprehensive, reliable and transparent information on relevant environmental characteristics. The information is also used by VMZINC as the basis for its eco-design approach.

Fixing standing seam joints

 VMZINC clips are made from 1.4301 (304) grade stainless steel and each clip must resist a pull-out force of 50 daN.

Standing seam fixed clips

For panels less than 2 m in length. When using single lock all clips can be fixed.

Standing seam sliding clips

For longer panels sliding clips must be used towards the bottom on vertical panels and to the left and right of the centre for horizontal panels.

Fasteners to substrate

It is recommended that screws be used to secure the clips with three being used per sliding clip. The use of nails offers significantly less resistance, but in the event of using nails, contractors are advised to use ring shank nails.
