Used world-wide for decades, the KerAion® facade system also offers– besides low weight and special fastening technique – alternatives to the otherwise quite usual board formats. In addition to rectangular panels, square panels in the large formats of 60 x 60 cm, 90 x 90 cm and 120 x 120 cm are also available, which are particularly suitable for the facade design of big buildings. All versions and formats received the general approval of the construction supervisory authority and also prove themselves in case of astatically demanding building structure.
A high degree of creative freedom is ensured by the colour range. It is based on SpectraView, the range of nine colour families matched to each other and several contrasting colours, which was developed by the colour designer Peter Zoernack. It is completed by the “Design glazed” colours.
The KerAion® panels can be installed both with visible and invisible fastening. KerAion® Quadro with a weight per unit area of 18.5 kg/m² and a thickness of 8 mm is mounted either by means of clasps (in case of the standard dimensions of 60 x 60 cm and 60 x 90 cm) or bearing profile (formats 60 x 120 cm,90 x 90 cm, 90 x 120 cm and 120 x 120cm). KerAion® K8 (standard dimensions of 60 x 60 cm, 60 x 90 cm, 90 x 90 cm), also 8 mm thin and with a weight of 18 kg/m², is designed for the fastening by means of clamps. Optionally, safety tapes are available for all formats, which are applied to the panel reverse side already in-plant and prevent larger pieces from falling down if a panel is damaged.
Architects attaching importance to a particularly uniform joint pattern decide in favour of KerAion® Quadro with invisible fastening by means of clasps or bearing profiles (depending on the panel size). In addition, the system offers the advantage that a weakening of the facade panels by under cut anchors is avoided. KerAion® K8 with visible clamp fastening – with the colour of the clamp lips being matched to the design of the ceramic panel –offers other advantages: above all the rapid installation with well thought-out system components, both on metal and wooden substructure.
Quadro fastening points (ceramic composite element) with integral stainless steel screw are sinter-fused on the reverse side of the KerAion® Quadro facade panels in a special firing process. On these fastening points, clasps (upto the size of 60 x 90 cm) or a bearing profile (up to the size of 120 x 120 cm) can be screwed by means of which the facade panels are hung in the substructure.
The KerAion® facade panels are fixed on the substructure by means of the stainless steel clamps K8. The colour of the clamp lips is matched to the panel design. To prevent clattering and constraining forces in the case of alternating wind loads, the facade panels are installed on the substructure in a nonrigid way by means of foamed pieces or alternatvely with polyurethane.
