Swisspearl Facade Panels are Installed on Timber or Metal Substructures.

The fastening method using “visible” screws or rivets allows an efficient attachment to the supporting structures. In fact, the fastener heads are available in the same shades of colour as the panels, and are hardly visible even a slight distance away as they blend with the overall surface

SIGMA | Concealed Panel Attachment

The concealed attachment has been designed for applications with the highest aesthetic standards. This high-end method of use brings out the full attractiveness of the surface finish of the Swisspearl® panels.

SIGMA concealed panel attachment is available for 8 and 12 mm panel thickness.

The panels are supplied from the factory accurately cut to size, including anchoring points to the panel rear face.

Aluminium parts are fitted to the panels on site and the panels hung into the appropriate supports on the sub-framing.

The sub-framing is made either out of timber battens covered by a layer of EPDM for moisture protection; or by metal, i.e. aluminium or galvanized steel.

Metal Sub Frame (aluminium or galvanized steel)

Sub Frame | Panel Supports

The panels are supplied including the fasteners but without the support
profiles. This leaves the great advantage of flexibility for architect or customer with 2 options:

  • Sub frame made from standard hat and Z profiles (cost efficient)
  • Sub frame system (there are many products available)

Colour Chart


Swisspearl Colour Chart

Carat

CARAT panels are integrally coloured with a transparent or pigmented acrylic top finish shade in shade. The unique natural look and the timeless beauty of the monolithic material with its delicate vein texture, provide an exciting and noble expression to every building.

Avera

AVERA is a high density fibre cement facade panel with a living texture never seen before. It brings out the authenticity of the mineral material and the differences in the texture and colour between the individual panels are a natural component of the products characteristic.

Reflex

REFLEX panels are directional, mostly integrally coloured and have an iridescent surface coating which is purely acrylic. Changing lighting and angles of vision produce amazing nuances in color shades. For cutting and Installation, manufacturing direction of sheets is to respect.

Incora

INCORA individual granules are incorporated resulting in a symbiosis between the marble granular material and traditional Swisspearl high density fibre cement. The unique surface texture is then finished with a wafer-thin, transparent coating to ensure durability.

Zenor

ZENOR high density fibre cement panels, with a smooth opaque surface coating that resembles the base panel colour.
