Providing and Fixing of Terracotta panel cladding
Providing and Fixing of Terracotta panel cladding of dimension 304*594*16 mm with modules of 300*600 resistance to impacts (classification as per P08- 302) with wind resistance to positive/ negative pressure 7000 / 5500 Pa, conform to standard NF EN 539-2, water absorption to be between 3% – 5% conforming to EN ISO 10545-3 § 5.1.1, bending strength not to exceed 1503 Newton conforming to EN ISO 10545-4.
Installation of terracotta panels to be done by securing to the vertical T-shaped aluminum profile using the fixing clips fastened with 2 selft apping stainless steel screws. Vertical aluminum T-shaped profiles are to be pre-punched hole with vertical spacing of 25mm. The terracotta tile is to be well-supported on four points by the clips and on its two smaller sides by the rubber gasket so as to have a very good wind load resistance of more than 7000 PA positive wind load pressure and a negative wind load pressure of 5500 PA and flexural strength of 150 da N. The total thickness cladding system are not to be more than 110 mm. The quantity of products per sq.m are to be 5.56 tiles, with quantity of profiles per main course sq.m to be 1.67 lm/m2, with quantity of clips to be 11.11 nos. per sq.m 2 for framing & installation for (FAÇADE TILE) Vertical spacing of 600mm to be set between vertical aluminum T-shape profiles/Rectangular Box Profiles.
Horizontal and vertical lines to be drawn as fixing references. Supporting brackets to be set up and fixed in a staggered way along T-shape profiles’ fixing line. Brackets’ depth to be adapted as per site. The vertical T-shape profiles/ Rectangular Box Profiles to be fixed in the brackets and profiles’ to be adjusted vertically so all profiles are to be on same vertical plan. Fixing clips to be screwed on the T-shaped profiles. The terracotta panel is to be positioned in level and panel’s back face grooves to be inserted onto the clips. Panel installation to be done from bottom to top all complete as per the Architectural drawings and as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge.
