HALFEN Sleeve Sandwich Panel Anchors and Flat Anchors
HALFEN offers two different systems for anchoring the facing layer
of sandwich panels to the supporting shell:
SPA sandwich panel anchors as well as MVA sleeve sandwich
panel anchors and FA flat anchors. In both systems the support
armature assume the function of transferring the dead weight of the
front panel, and a proportion of horizontal forces from the effects
of wind and temperature into the base course.
Two support anchors are usually enough for this: 2 FA or 1
MVA and 1 FA.
If using two FA anchors, they should be symmetrical to the
fulcrum in every direction. Another bearing anchor should be
inserted as a horizontal anchor, perpendicular to the main
direction of the load.
When using the MVA and FA is the cylindrical anchor is placed
in the anchoring centre, and the FA on the same fulcrum. With this
combination, the FA simultaneously assumes the function of the
Additional, officially approved connector pins and/or connector
brackets or clip-on pins are installed in the remaining area of the
plate to transfer the horizontal forces and prevent the facing
layer from warping.
When properly arranged, they minimise the constraining forces
caused by from thermal expansion and warping of the facing layer
through the construction of the MVA/FA anchor.
Through the round holes in the anchor ends the MVA and FA can be
securely tied to the existing reinforcement before pouring in the
concrete, by using reinforcing steel sections.
