Description

Interlocking Panels consist of a panel face and reveal joint, and are fixed in position using hidden fasteners. The panels can be orientated horizontally or vertically, can be applied equally to soffits and are available in all finishes of 1 mm thick VMZINC with standard panel widths being 200, 250 and 300 mm. The maximum panel width is 333 mm and length 6 m, panels of less than 0.5 m are not recommended. Joint widths can be either 10 or 20 mm. It should be noted that panel width = panel face + joint. The depth of the panel is 25 mm.


The panels can be fixed back to both timber and metal sub frames. Support rails are installed at 600 mm centres (maximum). Aluminium rails are 2 mm thick with both timber and aluminium rails requiring a supporting face of at least 40 mm.


Features and benefits:

  • Elegant linear panels.
  • Concealed fastening.
  • CWCT tested by UK fabricators.
  • Variable joint size.
  • Horizontal and vertical installation possible.


System build-up:

  • VMZINC interlocking panels.
  • Metal framing creating a vented 38 mm airspace.
  • VMZINC Membrane.
  • Insulation.
  • Supporting structure (blockwork or metal framing or other appropriate supporting structure).


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.
