Spandrel Panels

Spandrel Panels offer a solution to provide a quick and easy alternative to blockwork

Designed along with the roof trusses and in accordance with Robust Details, to our standard specification, Spandrel Panels and Gable Panels can be clad with ply, or with plasterboard to increase both acoustic and fire rated properties.

Spandrels come as pre-assembled structural panels, delivered with factory fitted slings for easy unloading and easy erection on site. It is commonly understood that this has been a popular solution to a potential health and safety issue, whilst saving money on site by negating the need for additional scaffolding to the roof.

This is a product that will be further developed to meet a growing need with the opportunity to produce bespoke Spandrel Panels to suit specific customer requirements.

The  NHBC has recently issued new technical guidance on Spandrel Panels and their use in 'Cold Roofs'. They call for Spandrel Panels, those clad both sides, to be vertically restrained to the wall below. We are recommending the use of a metre long Flat Restraint Strap, which requires fixing every 1.2 metre centres along the base of the panel itself on one side only. 

The guidance also talks about removing any impervious weather protection, it is important therefore to note that the green membrane protection we use to transport our panels is breathable. Therefore this material can be retained once the panel is secured in situ.

All our panels are supplied with lifting straps up to 3 metres, longer straps for crane off-loading are available on request.

If you require additional information on the supply of the Flat Restraint Straps to any existing sites, then please contact us and we will be happy to advise on quantities and price for supply.
