Gebrik installation is undertaken by a national network of trained and certiﬁed specialist cladding contractors. The installation process is fast and straightforward but the manufacturer’s instructions must be followed to ensure validity of certiﬁcation, insurance and most importantly the long term durability of the building. On-site guidance, an Installation Manual & Checklist, COSHH data sheets and Operations and Maintenance Manual are available on request.
The first panel is positioned on the starter rail, tightly abutting the corner element. The panel is drilled through and fixed to the substrate (using pre-located fixing positions).
In accordance with the BBA certiﬁcate, all system components must be supplied by Isosystems and the application of Gebrik can only be carried out by approved installers, i.e. ﬁrms who either:
(1) Employ operatives who have been trained by the Certiﬁcate holder or representatives Aquarian Cladding Systems to install the system and who have been issued with appropriate training cards by the Certiﬁcate holder or representatives.
(2) Have undertaken to comply with the Certiﬁcate holder’s application procedure, which contains the requirement for each application team to include at least one member with a training card. Failure to comply with these instructions may result in the BBA certiﬁcate and product insurance being invalidated.
