PRODUCT INSTALLATION

Sentrigard Architectural Wall Systems are types of roll-formed wall panels. With clip attachment, the wall panel system permits movement during thermal expansion and contraction, yet still retains complete securement. Screws attach panel clips to the substrate. Clip screws for architectural wall panels require a “pancake” head fastener. Therefore, to ensure compatibility, Sentriclad clips and screws as purchased through the NB Handy Company are required for all Sentrigard Architectural Wall Systems.

PROPER STORAGE

If coil or panel material is not to be used immediately, it should be stored in a dry place where as little moisture as possible can affect it. Moisture (from rain, snow, condensation, etc.) trapped between pieces of material may cause water stains or white rust, store the material in a well ventilated, dry area. Break steel strapping bands used for shipment, and store the stacks of material in an inclined position with an insulator, such as wood. It is the responsibility of the Contractor-Manufacturer to ensure that all materials are properly stored at the jobsite.

PROPER HANDLING

  1. Panel crates and coils must be lifted at bundle block locations.
  2. Do not lift material with ropes or wires.
  3. Do not lift panels longer than 25’ without a spreader bar.
  4. Do not lift panels from end while flat. Do lift panels from the edge.
  5. Lift panels on edge with one worker for each 10’ throughout the length of the panel.
