Façade cladding

The design of vented façades made of glass fiber reinforced concrete DAKOBET will attract anyone who seeks simple minimalistic building concept and values high quality and durability of the final work. The collection of properties that are essential for such a work inevitably include resistance against mechanical damage (caused by piercing or breaking) and a long life-span. DAKOBET parts retain their physico-mechanical properties for at least 50 years under normal outdoor conditions.

As opposed to classic buildings with contact insulation the vented façade features an air gap between the outer cladding and the outer wall or thermal insulation layer. Owing to the gap, these objects are allowed continuous ventilation of the walls' surface.

Products of glass fiber reinforced concrete DAKOBET excel in distinctively lower weight in comparison to competing products. Using matrices, a wide spectrum of various surfaces and structures can be achieved. Another great advantage is the variability of elements – apart from classic cladding boards we are able to manufacture panels with solid corners, three-dimensional parts or architectural motives and design solitaires of a more complex shape.

Surface finish

Glass fiber reinforced concrete parts of the DAKOBET series are manufactured in two basic variations of surface finish – smooth panels are standard, another option is a washed-surface product. Thanks to the option of mass material colouring, an entirely individual colour design of final elements can be created upon a customer's request. Parts are treated with hydrophobic coatings before expedition that enhance their resistance against natural influences.

Dimensions

Boards are tailor-made according to customer's requirements. Maximum board dimensions are not limited by production, standard thickness of cladding is 12 mm. Due to manual manipulation during assembly, panels up to 6 m2 surface are recommended.

Anchoring

DAKOBET Facade boards can be assembled onto base aluminium grates using these three methods:

Invisible anchoring – mechanical

It is a popular anchoring method where the outer part of a façade cladding is not optically disrupted by visible connections.

Mechanical anchoring is based on the technology using a system of hidden hinges and screw anchors installed at the back side of a façade panel. An element is then fixed to a horizontal part of the supporting grate, its position at the façade is regulated by means of adjustment screws. In the last phase, the cladding is secured against shifting.

Invisible anchoring – glueing

An alternative to hidden mechanical anchoring is glueing. The SIKA CZ company developed a system of façade board glueing SikaTack Panel that is suitable for creating vented façade structures both in the exterior and the interior. The assembly procedure must comply with the glue supplier's regulations, therefore it is advised to consult the manufacturer or our technical department before the assembly. Sika Tack Panel is a special flexible glue for glueing facade panels and cladding of vented facades. It is a single component polyurethane-based paste stiffened by air humidity, offering high stability and weather resistance.

Visible anchoring – riveting

It is a mechanical anchoring when boards are fixed onto an aluminium sub-construction by means of screws and rivets.

SUPPLIER INFORMATION

Price – to be assessed individually based on repeatability, shape demands and colours of required elements

Delivery time – depends on current production capacity. Not sooner than 28 days from production. The reason is maintaining the minimum setting time of concrete.

Storage – Parts are stored at roofed premises of a production hall

Formatting – After the parts have been set, they are formatted into required dimensions using a formatting CNC machine

Packaging – Flat façade panels on pallets, parts of miscellaneous shapes are transported loose. Higher quantities of panels are transported in a tailor-made transport boxes
