Environmental credentials
The Trimapanel System is a sustainable solution with responsible sourcing and traceability of all component materials. All steel elements are produced within the UK through the steel production, strip processing, galvanising, coating and profiling facilities. In addition the systems carbon footprint is further minimised by the manufacturing process being situated adjacent to the Colorcoat and galvanising lines. The PIR insulation within the system has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and a very low global warming potential (GWP) of less than 5. Both these factors support the achievement of a high BREEAM rating. All steel elements are 100% recyclable, without any loss of quality. The insulation can be separated using existing scrap shredding technology, after which the materials can be recovered or recycled.

Summary of Building Regulation requirements


The Building Regulations for the Conservation of Fuel and Power in England, Wales and Scotland have recently been revised. These regulations present a major step change in how the energy use of buildings is determined as the Government moves towards their aspiration for zero carbon buildings. Part L covers the building regulations in England and Wales and in Scotland this covered by Technical Handbook, Section 6 Energy. The regulations distinguish between new build and existing properties, as well as between dwellings and non-domestic buildings. Part L is divided into four sections: L1A New Dwellings, L1B Existing Dwellings, L2A New Buildings other than dwellings and L2B Existing Buildings other than dwellings. The main area of interest for Metal Cladding Systems is the non-domestic sector and a brief summary of the changes to these building regulations is provided below.

The notional building also uses improved efficiencies for lighting and heating services, which will be essential for compliance. This notional blueprint is a good start for design, however, there is scope for design flexibility, and our technical engineers are on hand to advise on the effects of changes to any element. A revised procedure is now in place to limit the effects of solar gain, whether or not a building has air conditioning at the time of design. This is a separate calculation to that of the TER but will need to be proven to Building Control as part of the submission.

Scotland Non-domestic Handbook, Section 6 Energy


The Scottish approach is basically the same approach as we are currently using; i.e. a 2002 notional building with a percentage improvement (in Part L this is called the flat approach). However the backstop values have been improved, and the percentage improvement over 2006 levels is a flat 30% (this equates to approximately 50% improvement over the 2002 notional building). This is likely to mean greater emphasis on improvements to all areas, especially on hotels, offices and commercial type buildings. The following tables include the standard package of construction performance measures for the notional building and backstop values:

Part ADL2 New non-domestic buildings in England & Wales


A fundamental change in Part L 2010 for non-domestic buildings is in the target-setting process. The new process recognises that it is easier and more cost effective to make improvements in some building types than in others. The aim for a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions from new non-domestic buildings is achieved on aggregate across the new-build stock rather than for each individual building. Some building types will be required to achieve a bigger improvement than 25%, whilst others will need to achieve less. The Target Emission Rate (TER) will still be generated through the National Calculation Methodology (NCM) using SBEM, but is no longer based on a 2002 notional building; instead the TER is based on a 2010 notional building aligned with the aggregate approach. The Building Regulations will now require the TER and Design Emission Rates (DER) calculations to be submitted to Building Control at the design stage as well as at completion. The notional building will either have 40% vertical glazing, 12% roof lights or no glazing at all, with the allocation being driven by the planning-use class. The limiting U-values for non-domestic buildings have not changed; these are shown below along side the figures used within the 2010 notional building.

Colorcoat products are supported by a range of services such as comprehensive guarantees, colour consultancy and technical support and guidance.

What is pre-finished steel?


Enormously versatile, pre-finished steel offers the building designer a material that is high quality, cost-effective, robust and visually attractive. First manufactured nearly 50 years ago, it has become the de facto material for many building envelope applications. Pre-finished steel is made up of a number of paint layers and treatments applied to the steel in an automated and carefully controlled manufacturing process. Each layer has a particular function and the performance of a pre-finished steel product is greatly influenced by them. Once the pre-finished steel is manufactured in coil form, it can be further processed into finished cladding systems such as composite panels, roof sheeting and faades.

Confidex Guarantee
The Confidex Guarantee has evolved from over 40 years experience in pre-finished steel development and manufacture. Available with Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra and Colorcoat Prisma, the Confidex Guarantee is clear and simple to register and can easily be transferred if building ownership changes. Tata Steel are so confident in these products that cut edges are guaranteed for the entirety of the guarantee period and there are no mandatory inspection or maintenance to uphold the validity. For more information visit www.colorcoat-online.com/confidex Registering the Confidex Guarantee provides a direct link to Tata Steel. In the unlikely event of a coating failure, Tata Steel can be contacted directly and independently of the contractual supply chain. Not only does this save time and money but can also avoid unnecessary legal involvement and the associated costs. In the worst case scenario elements of the contractual chain may no longer be in existence making a complaint difficult or even impossible to pursue without the direct link to Corus. Confidex Sustain is an enhancement of the Confidex Guarantee. As well as covering the performance of the Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra and Colorcoat Prisma used on your building, it offsets the unavoidable CO2 emitted during production of the whole cladding system, including the insulation and fixings.

When fixing to timber, fastener pullout values may limit the ability of the wall to resist wind uplift loads. If in doubt, consult Panels and Profiles. All fasteners can be sourced from Ash & Lacy Building Systems (Tel: +44 (0) 121 525 1444), SFS intec (Tel: +44 (0) 113 2085 500) or EJOT UK Limited (Tel: +44 (0) 1977 687040).

Sealants and gaskets


For panel ends at eaves, bases and corners, seal against the internal flashing with a 6mm diameter high grade butyl mastic. Internal flashing joints should use a 50 1mm high grade butyl mastic. External flashing joints should use a 4mm diameter high grade butyl mastic. All mastic should carry a 25 year warrantee (i.e. Pink or White Strip).

At vertical butt joints of horizontally laid panels, a 90 mm perimeter gasket should be used between the panel joint and laid continuously over the supporting steelwork. At corners and vertical junctions, the joint gap between the panels should be filled using a gunapplied solvent-release bedding sealant.

All sealants can be sourced from either Ash & Lacy Building Systems (Tel: +44 (0) 121 525 1444), SFS intec (Tel: +44 (0) 113 2085 500) or EJOT UK Limited (Tel: +44 (0) 1977 687040). The perimeter gasket is supplied by Panels and Profiles.

Site guidance
This guide assumes that all current safety regulations are in place before the installers commence work.

Receipt of materials on-site


All materials arriving on-site must be checked promptly before offloading. Checks should be made against the relevant delivery notes to ensure that the correct quantities and specifications have been delivered and to determine any possible transportation damage. Any discrepancies or damage observed should be recorded immediately on the proof of delivery paperwork, and a written report should be submitted within 21 days. Please note that offloading is the customers responsibility.

Packaging
The number of panels in each pack will vary with the length of the panel to ensure stability (see table below). Typically, panels are packed in stacks up to 1100mm high. The panels are protected by a baseboard and are plastic wrapped in the factory. If required, panels can be grouped and referenced for particular areas of the building (e.g., grid line, elevation reference). As standard, each pack is labelled with the order reference number, the number of panels and the panel length.

Off loading
Wherever possible, the Trimapanel System should be offloaded directly from the vehicle to the area where they will be used to reduce the risk of on-site damage. Offloading is to be undertaken as per Panels and Profiles recommendations. If panels are to be stored before installation, they should be placed on level ground (in accordance with storage instructions opposite).

There are two recommended methods for offloading:  Forklift or telehandler: These can be used when offloading panels less than 6m long. Care must be taken not to tip or damage the bottom panel when driving on uneven ground. Only one pack at a time should be unloaded. Open forks fully before lifting.  Crane: Where slings or grabs are used, precautions should be taken to prevent edge damage and to avoid pressure across the panels, which may cause distortion (chains should not be used). When lifting panels over 6m long, a spreader bar with sufficient hoisting belts to spread the load should be used. If required, temporary edge protection can be installed to prevent local damage. Only one pack at a time should be offloaded.

Storage

Pre-erection checks
A secondary support structure is required to support the cladding system at the necessary positions and transfer all loads imposed on and by the cladding system back to the primary structure. Before any work starts, a full survey or inspection should be carried out to ensure that the support steelwork and any other associated materials, is correctly positioned and within tolerance so that the Trimapanel System can be fixed correctly. Any obvious problems should be immediately reported to the main contractor to enable remedial work to be undertaken before installation of the cladding. Panels and Profiles recommend the allowable variation in the outer flange level of the cladding rail with respect to a vertical datum line is L/600 (where L is the rail spacing). Further guidance on steel work tolerance can be found in a Steel Construction Institute publication P346: Best Practice for the specification in installation of metal cladding and secondary steelwork.

Handling
Wherever possible, manual handling should be avoided and mechanical handling equipment should be used. Mechanical handling provides health and safety benefits, shorter installation times, smaller installation teams and less risk of panel damage. When using suction lifting equipment ensure that the panel is turned vertically soon after lifting from pack to avoid any risk of marking on panel face.

In addition to the guidelines above, the bundles should be stored on level ground (e.g., a floor slab). The packs should never be stacked more than two high. Storage icons There should be adequate separation between stacks to provide access and to avoid end damage. Storage icons 1.  Do not stand uncovered stacks in the open. Store under cover and away from open doorways. 2.  If stacks cannot be stored under cover, erect a simple scaffold around them and cover it with a waterproof orage icons sheet, tarpaulin or polythene. Leave space between cover and sheets to allow air to circulate. icons 3.  Store stacks off the ground and on a slope, so that should rain penetrate the cover, the water will drain away. 4.  Inspect the storage site regularly to ensure that moisture, despite the above precautions, has not penetrated the stack. 5.  Do not store sheets where people will walk across them.

Cutting
For making small cut-outs, openings and cuts that are not straight, use a jigsaw or a reciprocating saw. For longer straight cuts, we recommend using a circular saw that produces a cold cut with a fine-tooth metal cutting blade (i.e., not a grinding blade, as this hot cut will damage the coating). All cutting should be undertaken at ground level.

Installation panel
The steps given below are instructions for a typical construction and should be used only as a guide. Specific technical details, method statements and site-specific risk assessments should be produced and applied for each building. An extended list of robust details is available from Panels and Profiles, and advice can be give via our technical department on any bespoke details that may be required. The following steps apply to a wall made up of multiple panels with butt joints.

Horizontal wall installation


1.  Carry out preparation work on sill trims and panel bearers (maximum 1000mm centres) for the first panel, see figure 1. Ensure that these are lined, levelled and sealed as specified. Run a continuous length of perimeter seal (90mm wide) down the vertical supports central to the panel module. Ensure that this seal overlaps the drip flashing. 2.  Sit the first panel on the panel bearers so that the liner interlocks. Check that the ends of the panel have the correct land on the vertical supports (minimum 50mm land), are overlapping the perimeter seal, and allow enough room for the next tier of panels at the specified joint gap. Once the panel is correctly positioned, fix the top edge with the specified number of fasteners per vertical support. Make sure that the fastener is not over tightened, and clean away drilling swarf from the joint to avoid rust marks. Apply gun-applied solvent-release bedding sealant at the panel ends to seal the gaps at the external and internal joint areas before lapping the next panel.

3.  Continue to the top of the wall. If the top panel requires cutting, through fix back to an eaves beam support at a maximum of 1000mm centres, at no less than 30mm from cut edge.  A cover flashing or gutter line is normally used to conceal these fixings. 4.  Continue with next tier of panels following instructions from figure 2 onward. 5.  Once the elevation is complete, fix the vertical joint flashing. Figure 3 below shows the installation of the top hat arrangement.

Vertical wall installation


1.  Checks should be carried out to make sure that the bottom rail is adequately supported and level along its full length before commencing with the installation. 2.  Carry out preparation work on sill trims and panel bearers for the first panel. Ensure that these are lined, levelled and sealed as specified, see figure 4.

3.  Position the first panel with its female edge towards the corner of the building. Before inserting the fasteners, ensure that  a. the setting-out dimensions are observed. Failure to comply with these dimensions may lead to problems later in the section.  b.  the panel is plumb using a plumb line.  c.  the position of the panel relative to the bottom and top or intermediate rails is correct. Check this with the erection drawings.

4.  At each horizontal rail position, fix the first panel at the male edge (at concealed position), and through fix at the female edge with the specified number of fasteners. Make sure that the fastener is not over tightened, and clean away drilling swarf to avoid rust marks. 6.  Hoist subsequent panels into position and engage the lips with the adjacent panels. Maintain a uniform side joint to meet the panel cover width and setting out dimensions, see figure 2 for joint gap dimensions. Continue along elevation until the wall is complete. If the end panel requires cutting, fix back to the vertical corner support at a maximum of 1000mm centres, no less than 30mm from the panel cut edge. A cover flashing is normally used to conceal these fixings. 5.  If another layer of panels is required above, prepare the stack joint detail, see figure 6, and start the procedure again.

Protective film
The Trimapanel System is supplied with protective film on the external face. This is designed to provide additional protection during manual handling and site fixing. The film has a limited shelf life and must not be exposed to sunlight for long periods because it is susceptible to ultraviolet degradation. This makes the film difficult to remove and may result adhesive residue that causes dust and dirt to adhere to the decorative finish. To ensure easy, clean removal, remove the film within one month of panel delivery to site.

Case study
Barton Business Park Ltd have developed its latest addition, a 13,000m2 single storey warehouse and industrial space, with 930m2 of two storey office accommodation and associated service yard and parking facilities.
Architect Stephen George and Partners, designed the building, which is the largest on the development and also the most energy efficient. John Chia, architectural assistant with Stephen George and Partners, said: We have designed a low maintenance, economical building for the site. Industrial buildings perform a specific productive function and we believe they should operate as working machines, which facilitate the ultimate process which they exist to serve. Therefore, in terms of this distribution warehouse, it was imperative that the mobile elements of the process, which interact with the building, governed the overall layout and building form. The client insisted that the buildings fabric; its outer envelope, was guaranteed to last for 25 years and was also designed and built to meet the reduced carbon emission requirements of the new Part L of the Building Regulations. Stephen George and Partners specified the Trisomet System as the roofing solution and the Trimapanel System as the wall solution. The walls consist of 4600m2 of the 70mm Trimapanel System in Colorcoat Prisma Oyster. Panels and Profiles products were used because of their ability to assist in obtaining the Part L requirements and also they have a good guarantee, are easy to maintain, and are competitively priced, stated Chia. The off-site manufacture of the insulated roof and wall panels also cut down on waste and made them faster to install. The architect met with cladding contractor Barry Collen Ltd during the design and construction of the project to agree on colours and details. The completed building has achieved an air tightness level of 3m/h/m well below that of the minimum requirement of 10m/h/m. This was achieved by good design detailing and quality installation. Dave Bedford of cladding contractor, Barry Collen, says: The project is larger than we normally work on but, through good practice and strict supervision of on-site installation techniques, our 12 operatives completed the project to above the required standards in a very short space of time. This project took just over six months to complete, starting on site in May and finishing in December of the same year. In addition to the buildings sustainable credentials, the site is also reclaimed from previously contaminated industrial land. The overhanging eaves and supporting struts look really good, say Chia. Most importantly, the building has been designed and constructed to be energy efficient. This is something that all warehouse buildings will have to incorporate in the future, if they are to attract clients and tenants.
