DESIGN

The design of a cladding system of a new building whether it may be ventilated, micro-ventilated etc. is a complex procedure. It requires industrial planning criteria which should be considered and defined before beginning the realization in order to avoid substantial and / or unforeseen changes during the various stages of the manufacturing process.

GammaStone is able to develop projects considering the different modules of the façade: jointless architectural elements made or facade components like openings, string courses or other non-modular elements. Those elements are usually needed during renovations.

GammaStone technical department elaborates customized executive drawings in order optimize the number of cuts on the slab, to obtain faultless aesthetics in the combination of the formats avoiding wastage of valuable materials.

GammaStone Technical department consists of a team of architects and engineers aimed to develop projects following all the phase of the design process:

  1. Acknowledgement of the projects and / or the architectural concept for the cladding system of the building;
  2. Feasibility assessment;
  3. Identification of the materials of the perimetric wall to be covered;
  4. Definition of the structural plan and the respective general calculations;
  5. Implementation of the projects executive drawings.

GammaStone offers the following integrated design services:

  • Development of construction drawingsz
  • Development of Records
  • Mounting plan
  • Dimensioning of the panels
  • Calculations of the joints
  • Optimization of scraps according to the dimensions of the slabs.
  • BOM Processing
  • Static analysis
  • Packing list processing

PRODUCT CONFIGURATOR

GammaStone has developed its own web application to map the façade by a selfexplanatory computation of the GammaStone panels and of the monolithic elements that compose it.

This computation allows to customize a project and associate it with every single customer. This project contains all the information of technical and commercial aspects that will determine the Bill of Materials, the production process, the relative total cost and the cost for every piece and specific manufacturing technique applied.

The insertion procedure comprise for the following macro phases:

  1. inserting a new project associated with the customer, the site and the material;
  2. technical computation with easy logical insertion of flat panels and assembled components with monolithic corners, with any additional manufacturing technique required;
  3. Verification of the total and specific costs of the project through a screen visualization of the project report;
  4. commercial release of the quote / order resulted from the performed compilation.

Thanks to this application the customer has a clear and detailed overview of all the layers and of all the GammaStone AIR materials used in the project.

STATIC ANALYSIS

The static calculations consider a uniformly distributed unit load (weight, pressure and depression). The loads used for the different sizing procedures are evaluated using the principle of superposition (linear-elastic calculation). The procedures for designing all the elements of the facade are conform to the following combinations considering the most significant stresses (wind load, own weight, load from ice formations, seismic load).
Note: the design of the façade elements will be provided for the combination of the most relevant load. Details relating to the design of the shelves, to the fastening of the bracket to the base material and fixing of the profile to the bracket are shown in separate documents (statics of the system).

ASSEMBLY PLAN

Our technical department develops the drawings for each project related to the installation plans or tables of laying; starting from the design, along with the production and the packaging. The different phases meet the same criteria and follow the priorities to the final assembly stage. Each piece is accompanied by the technical details and the identification codes associated with the schedule of the entire project.

INSTALLATION

Installing the GammaStone façades is extremely simple and safe. Thanks to the collaboration of leading companies in the production of anchorage systems that are already of well-known and tested anchorage systems. The fitter is equipped with all specific indications for installation. Thanks also to the extremely reduced weight of the panels, installing is easier than with other ventilated façade solutions.

MAINTENANCE

GammaStone AIR panels do not need any maintenance, they are dry installed and they can be easily removed to intervene on the backward wall in case of necessity related to wiring requirements or others.
