We know that the final appearance of your building is influenced by the fixing method you choose. Fixing is not simply a technical requirement but is vital to achieving your vision.

There are many types of fixings that can be used with our Rockpanel boards:

  • visible (screws and rivets)
  • semi visible (nails)
  • hidden fixing (adhesive and concealed fixing system)

Follow the instructions provided by Bostik and Rockpanel ETA. If you prefer to use another adhesive system always verify with the system supplier whether this is technically approved and guaranteed for bonding Rockpanel boards. If using another bonding system, the adhesive supplier becomes responsible for certification and guarantee.
