Basic solutions with PAROC sandwich panelsBasic solutions comprise external walls, partitions and ceilings. They emphasise functionality and rationality and are suitable when cost-efficiency is more important than aesthetics, such as with industrial buildings and sports complexes. The system also provides strong and non-combustible partitions and ceilings for general interior applications that do not place extreme demands on fire resistance, hygiene or acoustics.

PAROC® panels

Pre-finished panel facings are essential when you need begin using your new building quickly. The standard steel sheet coating for external use is PVDF and, for internal use, polyester. PAROC panels are classified as non-combustible A2-s1,d0. Non-combustible materials keep the fire load in the building low and reduce the fire hazard. Non-combustible PAROC panels also help you decrease insurance costs.

Tightness

The panel joints are air and water tight. When the panels require sealant in one joint only, turn the sealed joint inwards towards the warm side of the building. The panel core itself is insensitive to water, as it has no capillary absorption.

In high buildings, air and water tightness are especially critical. In high or vertically installed facades, panels have to be sealed in both grooves of the joint. All necessary penetrations, such as window and door openings must be effectively sealed when designed into the panels.

Fixing the panels

Panels are usually fixed with penetrating fixings but in partitions vertically mounted panels are fixed with profiles. In ceilings, PAROC panels are suspended with hat profiles and anchor bolts from the bearing structures. The panels are fixed to the hat profile with screws. The upper facings of the panels must be fixed to each other. Use the Technical Guide and our CAD details to determine the correct type and amount of fixings.

Simple detail design

In basic solutions, keep costs low by using exposed fixings, riveted flashings and straight-forward detailing.
