RENOVATION The garage renovation project in Buizingen and the rear façade in Halle were completely renovated with the Puro Plus façade panel from SVK. For BPA, it was the first time that they could work with the fibre cement cladding panel from the SVK product range. Some of the main reasons for choosing this panel were the attractiveness of the grey shades in the Puro Plus panel and the panel's low maintenance. Another great added value is the price/quality of this fibre cement wall panel. SUPPORT Manager Bjorn Paelinck from BPA Dakwerken already has some experience with installing fibre cement wall cladding. Bjorn says: "For me, good preparation is half the work. If you can make sure that the supporting structure is properly placed and aligned, then it's pleasant and easy to install the fibre cement wall cladding panels. So a good start is half the battle.
For these two projects, a glued mounting was always chosen because it looks more attractive. There are many factors that influence the correct bonding of a wall cladding panel. The right knowledge is certainly essential. SVK provided training so that we could quickly learn the correct gluing technique. Via YouTube, I came across SVK's 3D instruction videos. These films show a number of do's and dont's for a good installation of a wall cladding panel which allowed me to prepare myself even better for the installation of the wall cladding panels.
BPA Dakwerken was also very satisfied with Defrancq's logistical support. "All ordered goods were on time at the construction site," says Bjorn. "At Defrancq the customer really is king. They try to solve the smallest problem as well and as quickly as possible. For example, I once called Defrancq on a Friday to have a van delivered on Monday. Defrancq then called in an external company to help us on Monday morning. They really go the extra mile for their customers". WHY USE A PURO PLUS FACADE PANEL FROM SVK? "I would definitely recommend the Puro Plus cladding panel from SVK for other projects. The grey tint and the ease of maintenance of the Puro Plus panel make it a very attractive product. Add to that the good price/quality ratio and you simply have a very good product that always achieves a beautiful end result.". WHY CHOOSE SVK WALL FACADE PANELS? "As soon as you hold, process or cut SVK panels, you notice that you have quality in your hands," says Bjorn. "The products are easy to install and offer a lot of creative possibilities." In addition, there are many other reasons why SVK fibre cement cladding is an excellent choice for both small and large projects. All SVK fibre cement products comply with Fire Class A2, which means that they are virtually non-combustible. They are also non-static, do not attract dirt and are low-maintenance. Within the standard dimensions of a 3070 x 1220 mm and 2520 x 1220 mm board, anything is possible. Besides sawing all kinds of shapes, SVK's CNC machines can perform various other operations, such as milling a house number, relief or drawing into the sheet. This extra sawing service also means that Defrancq and SVK can offer the contractor extra support. In addition, a project no longer has any creative boundaries and you can give each building a unique character. This versatility makes fibre cement products a reliable and durable product.
