CLADDING FIXING SYSTEM

CLADDING FIXING SYSTEM


Mechanical cladding fixing is a method in
which stone cladding materials are fixed
to the facade of the building with the use
of stainless steel angles, brackets and
anchors.

Cladding Fixing System is mechanical fixing assemblies for prefabricated panels on buildings.
There are too many different cladding types: sand stones, marbles and limestones, granite, basalt, precast
concrete panels and other types.

MECHANICAL FIXING COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL FIXING:

CLADDING FIXING SYSTEM


EXMET provides a full system of
mechanical cladding fixing with all
needed support.

Starting from the

design concept, the necessary load


requirements,

down

to

the

manufacturing of the high quality


components and followed up by a good
after sales service.

EXMET Compliance
EXMET products are made of steel,
associated wastes generated should
be included in the construcon
waste management plan on each of
the project.
EXMET products are made of steel
and as widely known, 88% to 100%
of steel used in the construcon a
recycled into new steel products at
the end of their useful life.
EXMET manufacturing plant is
located in Qatar and Oman and
most of our raw material suppliers
are in close proximity to our
locaon.

CLADDING FIXING SYSTEM


DESIGN CRITERIA

II. Fixing Details


1. Types of Load:
a. Dead Load - refers to the load of the cladding itself
b. Variable Load - refers to live load, wind, seismic loads and thermal
expansions

2. Fixing Systems:
a. Load-bearing Fixing - used to support dead loads
and the vertical components of the variable loads.
Makes use of brackets and angles of adequate
dimensions and loading capacity and anchored to the
building with expansion anchors and / or bolts.

b. Restraining Fixing - main purpose is to keep the


cladding in position as per the project specification.
With the use of the adjustable expansion anchors, even
in the absence of a perfectly vertical external surface of
the building, it can easily cover up this shortcoming.

CLADDING FIXING SYSTEM


DESIGN STEPS
Method of Design is ASD (Allowable Stress Design)
1. Analysis of loads

SHEAR

fv (actual) = Vmax
A
Fv (allowable) = 0.40 Fy
Fv / fv > 1

FLEXURAL

fb (actual) = Mmax
S
Fb (allowable) = 0.60 Fy
Fb / fb > 1

DEFLECTION

Point Load:

(actual) = PL
3EI
Distributed Load: (actual) = wP
8EI
(allowable) = L
500
*not to exceed 0.5mm
(allowable) / (actual) > 1

TENSION AND
BEARING CAPACITY

ft(actual) =

T
A
Ft(allowable) = 0.67 Fy
F t / ft > 1

2. Applying equations to compare actual with allowable stresses on each element.


3. Choosing the correct section.
* detailed design to be submied upon request and is given in case to case basis
* generally, the values menoned in our tables can be used safely.

ANCHOR BOLTS
Suitability:
Ideal for non-cracked concrete
Material:
Stainless Steel Grade 304 and Grade 316
Through Bolt

(as per Engineers instructions)

Description
Composed of Tapered Bolt, Expansion Clip and Hexagonal Nut.
When the hexagonal nut is tightened, the tapered bolt is then pushed into the expansion clip
causing it to expand and anchor itself on the wall thus it will not fall off or twist in the hole.

Suitability:
Ideal for cracked and non-cracked concrete,
bricks, block, stone
Material:
Stainless Steel Grade 304 and Grade 316
Sleeve / Shield Anchor

(as per Engineers instructions)

Description
Pre-assembled anchors for quick and easy installation. The half-moon shaped recesses
stamped in the sleeve contracts in length when it is tightened thus permitting the item to be
attached firmly to the concrete.
