HALFEN Sandwich panel anchors
Sandwich panel façades combine the load bearing, support layers and facing layers into one element. The benefits are quick installation and the already integrated thermal insulation.
We offer two different fixing systems:
the SPA Sandwich panel anchor and the FA Flat anchor. These connect the load bearing, support layers and the facing layers.
In both systems, the support anchors transfer the dead load of the facing layers as well as proportionate horizontal forces resulting from wind and temperature fluctuation to the support layers.
With the SPA System, two SPA Support anchors installed symmetrically to the centre of mass axis in each support direction are usually enough. A further SPA Sandwich panel anchor is used as a horizontal anchor perpendicular to the main load bearing direction to account for loads during transport and installation.
Building authorities approved restraint ties are distributed over the rest of the panel; to account for horizontal forces and to prevent warping in the facing layer.
Sandwich panel elements are very economical and therefore used particularly in industrial and commercial construction (for example, storage and warehouse facilities). However, when used in combination with high-quality, designed concrete facings residential buildings and public buildings are also realized.
The SPA Sandwich panel support anchors are available in 2 different versions, each with 4 different thicknesses of wire.
The SPA Restraint ties are available in 3 different versions, each with 3 or 4 different thicknesses of wire.
