  5. 5. Learning Concepts • Assumes no review of ventilated façade technology needed • Panel architecture • HPL in the world of choices • Criteria for choice • HPL more information • Fabrication choices • Designing with HPL • Construction • Last words 5
  6. 6. 6 • Aesthetics: • Image, color, texture, module (grid) size and orientation, joint design and fastening • Function: • Weight, panel sizes, wind load requirements • Impact and scratch resistance • Durability and Life span and the warranty • Weathering and UV resistant • Ability to meet code requirements • Maintenance and Cleaning, chemical resistance • Sustainability: FSC, LEED, EPD, LC Analysis • Energy efficiency (both cooling and heating) • Economic: • Material cost, Optimization and cost of fabrication and Ease of installation
  7. 7. Building Codes (Lagging or leading function?) • Part 3 Buildings • Codes about combustibility only. HPL CAN ULC S134 – six storeys in Ontario – lets discuss. • Structure calculated by engineer during stamped shop drawing process. Mitigates Architect’s liabilities. • Thermal behavior defined in subsystem design. • Freeze thaw, UV, impact, etc durability function of specification. • GWP, EPD, HPD function of leadership* and local codes eg Toronto Green Standard • Part 9 Buildings • CCMC (federal) and BMEC (Ontario) certification: rare and optional. Discussion. • Same issues as above. 7 *Leadership = specifiers should insist on working with leading companies who have invested in this, until codes catchup. S102 HPL Flame Spread 5 Smoke Developed 25
  8. 8. 8 Exterior Grade Phenolic Panels Generic classification: Solid Phenolic Strengths: • Wide range of decors • Variety of large panel sizes • Hi-design capabilities • High level of impact, weathering and UV resistance • Graffiti resistance • Self cleaning (non-porous) • Maintenance and cleaning • Ability to field modify • Ability to incorporate digital graphics into panels • Sustainability/Environment • Warranty
  9. 9. History of Phenolic Products • “Phenolic resins—100 years of progress and their future” • Kazuhisa Hirano, Masakatsu Asami Authors • 1911 First Developments Japan • strength, heat-resistance, long-term reliability and cost, and therefore have been used in a wide range of applications from kitchen parts to components for electronic appliances and automobiles. • Tradename Bakelite • Formica replaced ‘mica’ for insulating items in electrical components • Discovered durability, lead to other uses: automotive, aerospace, construction etc. • 60 years making panels 9
  10. 10. 10 Perceptions we’ve heard Surface vulnerable to impact, graffiti, other damage Panel can delaminate Panel vulnerable to water and freeze/thaw action Hard to install Costly Poor sustainability Facts Surface harder than metals, FRC, Ceramics and cleanable with common acetone. Non porous, high level of UV protection, great abrasion resistance, easy to remove graffiti Material all one homogenous material after pressure and temperature process On buildings from Siberia to South of India Common ventilated façade installation; easy fabrication, cutting, drilling – high yields Easy to ship in bulk, low cost manufacturing at volume, very competitive to Architectural façade choices 65% of product is wood fibre, harvested as a crop from managed FSC forests. Dust is not toxic to workers. Scraps are sources of energy
  11. 11. Standards and Certifications – ask about them, specify them • EN 438 • Tests for colour fastness • ISO 9001 (quality) ISO 14001 (Environment) ISO 15001 (Energy Mgt) ISO 45001HPD (Occupational Health and Safety) • HPD and EPD • International Building Code and it’s references • ASTM D 1037 ASTM G 23, 26, 152 – Accelerated Weathering • ASTM B 117 - salt ASTM G 155 • ASTM D 2247 - water Freeze thaw • ASTM E 330 • Certificate of long term performance – 30 year test. • QC program with audit by ICC-ES. • Cleaning and chemical resistance protocol • LEED Contributes to MR Credit 6 and 7. Subsystems MR Credit 5.1. • Florida Building Code Approvals. Hail Testing. 11
  12. 12. Environment (EPD) • Source material – 67% natural fibres • FSC wood fibre • Byproduct of wood industry – one type of wood • Production – ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 – independent annual inspectors. • Exhaust air heat captured and reused • Best practice award • Fire protection certified. • Fabrication • Many sizes, easy to optimize use and avoid scrap • Dust not toxic • Construction • Light, handling easy with limited use of equipment 12 Resilience Certified lifespan over 50 years No maintenance required, cleaning easy. Good for high traffic areas – no marks, no dents, clean graffiti and dirt easily Recyclable In Factory offcuts recycled. No toxins or heavy metal. Subsystems often recycled steel, aluminum or wood Reusable Easy to remove and re-install elsewhere. Subsystems reusable.

  18. 18. Architectural Detail And Cost: ACM vs Phenolic 2018 18Confidential Why are they compared: Panels, with matte and gloss colour, planar looks are often either done with ACP or Phenolic. The factors that determine cost often come down to the driver of architectural detail. Factors of cost Complexity: All panels the same, vs complexity Raw Panel Fabrication Onsite install ACM HPL Comment Better if simple layout, Panels all the same Better if more interesting layout All about fabrication and installation. ACP requires routering, fixtures. HPL requires simple cuts and rivets. $ $ $$ $$ CDN$5 vs CDN$13 Simple panel, ACM Big Advantage Interesting panel, HPL Big Advantage • Routering vs simple cutting • Returns vs no returns • Closed joints vs open joints • Hardware vs no hardware • Needs reinforcement vs self-supporting About the same, complexity makes ACM more expensive

  21. 21. FunderMax UV • Acrylic PUV impregnate not film; • Double cured = double strength, durability • Competitor put a sheet on top and bottom • Trespa Meteon is EBC: not bad, but not as good • Patterns and wood use film – can scratch film off, can power wash film off. Look of pattern is different • We have have 100 micron resistance, they have 20 vs EBC • Other HPL – use films 21

Possible next steps • Let’s work on a project. • Project review – no obligation • If you have a project, and you want to consider HPL, we can review your massing, approach, ideas on layout and provide a strength / weakness feedback, and if appropriate conduct a budget analysis. • Interactive webinar just for your team. • This webinar is one-on-many but we can make it interactive with your team. • What webinars / training would you like? ✓ Ventilated brick facades ✓ Fibre cement systems vs panels construction ✓ Terracotta panels, baguettes ✓ Modular construction • Webinar has been recorded, and will be available on website by morning. If you listen to it, tell FSI and we will issue a learning certificate. • Tell your friends and colleagues please. Feedback at blair@facadesystemsinc.com 2018 37
  38. 38. Conclusion • HPL Proven • Ask for certifications • FunderMax different • EPD, HPD, commitment to health and environment • UV Performance • Décor Choices • Company size = R&D – more to come • Follow best practices in design, specification, fabrication and construction STAY WELL, WE’LL GET TO THE OTHERSIDE!
