Hook systems are ideal for the concealed attachment of Metawell® wall linings in vessels. Support profiles are fixed to the body structure and levelled. The wall ele- ments are mounted onto the profiles with hooks.
These hooks can be fixed to the Metawell® panel back with blind rivets. The rivet locks in the space between the panel‘s two cover sheets with the effect that the visible side of the panel shows no optical impairment.
Hat profile system
With the help of hat profiles all kinds of walls can be quickly assembled while leaving the desired flexibility with regard to design and shape. Tolerances may be evened out when adjusting the panels and profiles on the spot.
With this system a cover profile is pinched onto the profile that protects the construction against vandalism. The hat profile system shown is suitable for all Metawell® panels on condition that Metawell® Aluflex is additionally stuffed in order to guarantee a sufficient clamping strength. The hat profile system shown is suitable for all Metawell® panel types.
When using Metawell® Aluflex, a relining of the panel is necessary in the top hat profile to ensure sufficient clamping.
A special advantage of Metawell® panels fixed with a hat profile, is the simple way to form corners. Metawell® panels with cover sheets of 0.8 mm thick- ness, that are milled on their back, can be used as corner elements.
Depending on the direction of the folding, inner or outer corners can be formed. Since the folding is done by hand, the corners can be adjusted at site. By milling the back of the panel different folding radii (depending on the milling geometry) can be realized. Thus it is possible to level out angle tolerances of the construction almost automatically. As purely metallic sandwich panel, Metawell® has a low insulation effect, allowing a heat and fire insulation that is largely tailored to the place of use, as it clearly separates the “wall cladding“ and “insulation“ functions. Usually working with floating insulation, the insulation is inserted between structure and Metawell® panels.
