NEOLITH sintered compact surfaces are ideally suited to outdoor applications like ventilated facades.
All planning and safety checks should be done well in advance before starting the job to avoid delays and complications. Make sure a certified site manager is present to oversee all aspects of the installation. Once the scaffolding is complete make sure you have the correct tools on hand for each stage of the job.
Now you’re ready to begin mapping out the plans on the building exterior. Precision measurements are key to ensuring a successful installation, so take your time.
Now that the measurements are mapped out on the exterior wall, you can start drilling holes for the plugs that will secure the fixings and brackets to the surface.
Fix the bracket to the wall using coach screws and double check the bracket’s alignment before moving on.
Inaccurate measurements will impact the whole job, so don’t rush your team when it comes to double checking levels… Make sure all of the brackets are installed before applying your pre-cut, 6mm NEOLITH tiles.
T-profiles and angle profiles should also be cut to the exact length before securing to the brackets.
Now that the framework is secured, apply double-sided tape diagonally to the centre of each profile to get the most surface area covered.
Apply the adhesive in the gaps between the pieces of VHB double-sided tape.
With the brackets and profiles prepared, it’s time to apply your pre-cut NEOLITH tiles. Suction cups will improve the ease of handling for each tile.
As soon as a panel has been applied, keep it in place with firm pressure evenly applied for at least 5 minutes to allow the adhesive to dry.
Once you finish, be sure to clean the panels with soap and water before taking down the scaffolding.
NEOLITH ventilated facades create a natural insulation, retaining heat in winter and cool air during the summer. With UV stable pigments, your NEOLITH façade will keep its good looks for years to come.
