Installation & Fixing Options
many more drawings to upload …..just email us in the meantime
The typical methods of attaching Shutters or Louvre Screens to a building are listed below. This is not an exhaustive list but will provide an overview for you to consider.
note: Building Permits may be required to carry out any of this type of installation. Check with your local Council authority to see if the works can be undertaken under delegated authority or NSW or other states Exempt Building Approvals
(Conditions such as load bearing capacity of the wall structure, wind calculations, other structural support requirements, ancillary supporting etc will be referenced in the engineering design process.)
The installation may require an Engineer’s Certificate which would be prefaced by an Engineer calculating and sketching up the proposal and then inspecting the completed works to certify them.
Wall or Facade Face Fixed Screens – Typically the Screens will be set away from the wall or facade thereby providing a clearance for say maintenance, operation of the screens, ancillary screening such as Intruder or Insect. The offset or face fitted profiles are available in simple full width Angle Extrusions, Proprietary Brackets, Photo Album Corner Tabs, and Heavy Duty welded Tee Brackets. Our Standard Bracket supports are available in 50mm, 100mm, 200mm, 300mm, 400mm, 500mm, 600mm, 750mm, 900mm, 1000mm, 1200mm, projections. Custom Brackets can be fabricated based on your design.
Wall or Facade Revel Fixed Screens – Typical installations of Screens with the external reveal of a window opening if the depth is sufficient to fit this option will involve a closer proximity if screen to window. Bare in mind the function of the screen, normal maintenance required and even penetrations in reveals so that you do not penetrate membranes around the window opening.
Reveal top and bottom or all 4 sides sub framed to secure the screens within the reveal is common. We have a simple drop fix Channel component which secures teh screens assisted by side sealing trim. It is a neat method complying to structural and weather permeability design codes.
