Sandwich Panels

Sandwich panels are the last of 9 different, thin-walled covers, which are treated as 'Special Facades' in FassadenGrün. On this page, such wall panels are illuminated in more detail, with the help of photographs; it is shown which fastening variants are suitable here. The site is designed to help you to find the appropriate grading technique for such panels.


Sandwich panels are hard to imagine wall panels in commercial and industrial construction, but there they exist. But also at homes and outbuildings they find themselves increasingly popping up. They are extremely light, easy to install and insulate well. And they look like a bread and spread ('sandwich'): between the two ' slices ' is a fill layer, the so-called ' core. Almost always, the core consists of insulation (polystyrene, mineral wool, wood wool). Honeycomb structures are possible and result in very rigid panels. The tops can be made of plywood, wood fibre, sheet metal or plastic and are bonded with the core layer. Core layer and surface layers together provide for the stability of the panel. Sandwich panels are used but never as 'load-bearing walls' at your house, on the contrary: you always need a substructure on which they are adhered. Sandwich panels are often external plastered and then not at all as such recognizable. On large surfaces in industrial construction, sandwich panels are moved right in the form of huge panels (with 'tongue and Groove').

Fastening possibilities

The mounting of growth peripherals and technology in sandwich panels presents a challenge, we recommend the drill cassette UB 77777. In industrial construction, in the case of large-format sandwich panels, the inner cover panel also serves as a visible inner wall. A complete perforation of the sandwich panels can be problematic. Rope systems are often not suitable, but lattice systems and rods have the advantage, because they bring less binding loads into the anchors than rope systems. Also pre-arranged greenery can be an alternative.

For office and residential buildings, pressure-resistant sandwich panels are used, and the inner cover panel does not at the same time also form the visible inner wall. Here rope systems according to variant 07 are suitable.
