Decorative brickwork has always had a solid appearance. However, modern building materials can avoid the laborious process of its creation. It is enough to install CBPB structured for brick or stone. They have an excellent appearance, while their installation is quick and easy. Correct facing allows not only to decorate the facade, but also to significantly insulate the building.
Wherever possible, fittings that depend upon face fixing should be selected; fittings that depend upon the expansion of a component inserted into the panel edge should be avoided.
Conventional woodworking fixings and techniques can be applied to CBPB which provides good holding power for screw fixings into the panel faces. Edge screwing is possible; in panels greater than 16mm in thickness, pre-drilled holes are required. Countersunk parallel core screws should be used in both edge and face fixings because they have greater holding power than conventional
wood screws. A high ratio of overall diameter to core diameter is desirable. Because of the high alkalinity of the panel, stainless steel or galvanized screws with a diameter up to 4.2mm should be used. Drill pilot holes for all screw fixings. Typically, the holes should be 85% to 90% of the screw core diameter. Fixings into the panel face should not be within 15mm of edges of panels up to 16mm in thickness (20mm for panels up to 22mm in thickness) and within 40mm of the corners. Manual nailing of serrated or twisted nails up to 3.1mm in diameter is possible in panels up to 12mm in thickness. Above 12mm, either pre-drilled manual insertion or none pre-drilled pneumatic fixing should be used. Nails must be flat-headed and galvanized, sherardized or of stainless steel. Panels can also be fitted together using galvanized or stainless steel clips.
